Disney planning to remake Sister Act

In a week that saw Fox announce a Dwayne Johnson remake of Big Trouble In Little China, Disney is determined to steal the studio’s thunder by revealing plans to remake… Sister Act. Yes, you read that correctly.

According to THR the studio is set to dust off the 1992 film, in which Whoopi Goldberg starred as a Vegas entertainer put into protective custody as a nun in order to hide her from a posse of mob goons. No word as yet regarding a potential return from Goldberg, but we’d expect a cameo at the very least.

Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith and Karen McCullah have been charged with writing the script, having previously worked on the likes of Legally Blonde and The House Bunny. Cinderella’s Allison Shearmur is set to produce.
