Whoopi’s “The View” cohost Sara Haines asked her directly on Thursday if there would be a Sister Act 3.

While appearing on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” on Wednesday, Whoopi revealed that she is working to get the original cast back together for the third movie.

“For a long time, they kept saying no one wanted to see it, and then quite recently, it turns out that that might not be true,” she told Corden, who admitted that he is a big fan of the films. “People might want to see it.”

“We’re working diligently to try to figure out how to get the gang together and to come back,” she added.

Whoopi went on to talk about the appeal of the original 1992 movie as well as that of the 1993 sequel. 

“Listen, it’s a really fun movie,” she explained. “It’s fun and it feels good and nobody’s mad. It’s just, like, listen — bad singing, great singing, OK singing, and nuns. What’s better than that?”

When Whoopi appeared on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” in November of 2018, Hollywood mogul Tyler Perry suggested a third Sister Act movie that would star her and Tiffany Haddish.

“The two of them in Sister Act, that should happen. Let’s make it happen,” Perry said, according to Entertainment Tonight

When host Andy Cohen asked if he could buy the rights to Sister Act, Tyler Perry appeared to be intrigued by the thought.

“That’s exactly what I was thinking. I was sitting here thinking, ‘Tiffany Haddish, Whoopi in Sister Act,'” Perry said. “We’ll go get ’em!”
