A ‘Sister Act’ Remake Is in the Works at Disney

sister_actReviving ’90s comedies for TV and the big screen is so hot right now, and today THR reports that Disney wants to follow the trend by developing a remake to the 1992 comedy Sister Act. Writing team Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah — who co-wrote Legally Blonde, The House Bunny, and 10 Things I Hate About You — are on board to pen the script, though no plot details have been revealed and it’s unknown whether or not Whoopi Goldberg will appear. The original Sister Act was followed by the 1993 sequel Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit as well as a Broadway musical that earned five Tony nominations in 2011.
