Yup, you read that right. Another remake is currently in the works. This time, it’s the 1992 musical comedy film, “Sister Act”.
Disney has decided to pull the classic out of their storage in order to reinvent the storyline from this hugely successful comedy gold. Fans need not be afraid that the remake will appear disappointing and terrible as Kristen “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah Lutz have signed on to rewrite the script.
“Cinderella” producer, Allison Shearmur, will be overseeing the production. However, it is unclear if Whoopi Goldberg, star of the movie franchise, would be making an appearance in the remake as no plot details has been released as of yet.
Smith and Lutz are often credited as “2 of the most reliable writers in the female protagonist comedy space”, with a slew of box office successes under their names. They worked together in “10 Things I Hate About You“, “Legally Blonde”, “Ella Enchanted”, “She’s The Man”, “The House Bunny”, “The Ugly Truth”, and “One for the Money”.
The original “Sister Act” movie revolves around Deloris Van Cartier, a lounge singer who is suddenly put on a hit list by a mob boss. In an attempt to protect herself, she is forced to take up the identity of Sister Mary Clarence in the San Francisco Convent 0f Poor Clares.
The movie was such a big hit with audience that it spawned a sequel in 1993, “Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit”, and inspired a musical of the same name in 2006.
