Whoopi Goldberg Begs Maggie Smith To Return for ‘Sister Act 3’

From the Walt Disney World News and written by: Sean Sposato

If you haven’t already heard, a “Sister Act 3” has been in the works for some time. In fact, a script has even been written for it. However, it seems it might be missing one crucial element: Maggie Smith, according to Whoopi.

Whoopi Goldberg, the star of the hit film series, made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” where she discussed the film, which already has a script written that she had the great privilege to read. When commenting on the script, Whoopi added: “I really like it but it has a whole lot of adults to go through. So, if they don’t get in its way, it could actually be pretty good.”

Currently, the third film in the series is set to come to Disney+ and is said to see the return of familiar faces. Although, as of right now, it seems Maggie Smith has not yet signed on to the project.

Well, Whoopi wants Smith to return so badly to the film that she’s actually made a public plea to the actress when making an appearance on the British talk show, “Loose Women” (via PEOPLE).

“I want to let Maggie Smith know that I’m holding the part of Mother Superior for you, because I just can’t do it with anybody but you,” Goldberg said to the camera. “So, if you need me to come over here and shoot it and do whatever we have to do, we will do whatever you want us to do,” she continued. “But we don’t want to do it without you, Maggie.”

Smith recently turned 88 and is still working in the industry. Just last year, Smith reprised her role as Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, in “Downton Abbey: A New Era”. Currently, she has two projects in production,”The Miracle Club” with Laura Linney and Kathy Bates and “A German Life, the story of Brunhilde Pomsel.”
