Whoopi Goldberg has hinted that a third ‘Sister Act’ film is in the pipeline.

The 64-year-old actress played Deloris Van Cartier in the 1992 movie and its sequel ‘Sister Act: Back in the Habit’ and revealed that bosses are “working diligently” on a project that will see her reprise the role.

Whoopi told James Corden on ‘The Late Late Show’: “For a long time, they kept saying no one wanted to see it. And then quite recently, it turns out, that that may not be true. People may want to see it.

“So we’re working diligently to try to figure out how to get the gang together and come back.”

The original flick saw lounge singer Deloris go into witness protection as a nun named Sister Mary Clarence and followed her attempts to fit into the convent and inspire the nuns to come out of their shells in the choir. Whoopi was joined in the cast by Dame Maggie Smith and Kathy Najimy and she hinted that the new project will be “fun”.

She explained: “It’s fun and it feels good. And you know, nobody’s mad. It’s just listen – bad singing, great singing, OK singing and then nuns. What’s better than that?”

Disney have been planning a ‘Sister Act 3’ – a remake of the original film – since 2015 and have tapped Regina Y. Hicks and Karin Gist to pen the script. Whoopi previously expressed her disappointment that the studio had decided to reboot the movie.

The Oscar-winning star said: “We’ve been all over Disney begging. They’ve decided that they’re going to go in a different direction with ‘Sister Act’. So it won’t be ‘Sister Act 3’, it will be a brand new rendition of ‘Sister Act’, and I guess I’ll walk through a scene and that’s how they’ll say I was part of it.”

Sam Smith | Sam Smith’s break-up album

Sam Smith‘s ‘Love Goes’ is a break-up album.

The new record details how Sam changed after their split from ’13 Reasons Why’ actor Brandon Flynn, in 2018, following a nine-month relationship.

Sam told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “When people say break-up album, it’s like, it is, but it’s more about how a break-up changes you, especially your first one.

“You know, this is about my first ever relationship and I think anyone’s first relationship is a big thing.

“But a queer person’s first relationship is a huge thing sometimes, because it’s where you discover the most about yourself.

“And so it’s more about me and my journey after that, really. But yeah, it is basically a break-up album.”

And Sam admitted being single and famous can be tough.

They said: “Just never getting my way through being single and famous is challenging at times, for sure.”

Referring to bad dating experiences, they added: “Oh many, many, many. Yeah, of course. Thank God I’ve had them too.

“I’m trying to look at all experiences now as a wonderful thing. Fame in general, it takes a minute to get your head round it. I think it’s just going to take a little bit longer for me to find someone.

“And also I’m too busy, if I’m honest, to facilitate any sort of relationship.”

Ariana Grande | Ariana Grande praised by producer

ariana grande 2172150

Ariana Grande‘s producer knew immediately that he wanted to work with her.

Tommy ‘TBHits’ Brown has been collaborating with Ariana since her 2013 debut album ‘Yours Truly’ and he admitted he was blown away by Ariana during their first meeting.

He said: “This girl can really, really sing and she’s really, really good. I wanted to connect outside of this studio and I played her some other retro-sounding beats I was doing.”

Ariana, 27, who has just released her latest album ‘Positions’, is equally gushing about Tommy.

She explained to the Wall Street Journal magazine: “One of the things I love most about working with Tommy is that none of the beats he plays me ever sound the same. He’s never afraid to try new things and is always willing to experiment and grow with me.”

The Covid-19 pandemic affected how they recorded the latest album, as they moved between Brown and Grande’s in-home recording studios in California this year.

And although Brown was shocked when Ariana recently announced the release date for the album, he also called her a “guru” for knowing that it was time to drop her new album, following the release of ‘Thank U, Next’ in February 2019.

Elle Fanning | Elle Fanning stars in Gucci film series

elle fanning 2171429

Elle Fanning has partnered up with Gucci’s ‘Absolute Beginners’ film series.

The 22-year-old actress has joined the luxury fashion label alongside Jodie Turner-Smith and Kelvin Harrison Jr. to release a series of short films with nine first-time directors to celebrate “the potency of the pop culture and naïveté, the beauty in amateurism, and expose the power and vulnerability of the creative impulse while centering the Gucci Jackie 1961 bag”.

The nine films will be released in two drops on TikTok with the first one – which features Elle, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Jodie Turner-Smith, Benedetta Porcaroli and Emma Corrin – being released on October 28 and the second on November 6.

The second drop will feature films by Lily Gavin, Barry Keoghan, Yoshi, and Arlo Parks.

Speaking about the project, Elle said: “My film is about captivating the nature of Gucci. Even a dog can be hypnotised by its beauty. One night while drifting off to sleep, I thought of this western showdown between a dog and dog owner with a scoreboard keeping tallies of how Gucci always wins.

“Since I am an absolute beginner to directing, I wanted to make a statement with the tone. Yes, this is a fashion film, but why not tell a funny story while looking at sparkling garments?”

Kelvin added: “[My] film is essentially a story about the seemingly ever-present fear of love. The concept initially came from someone I was seeing who told me that the risk of falling in love was greater than the reward. They had come to believe that after so many unsuccessful attempts at sustaining a long-lasting relationship it was unfair to expect anyone to take on their accompanying baggage. It was suggested I may be naive to believe that someone could not only handle the baggage of another, but embrace it with an authorship as if it were their own”.

What’s more, the creator behind the original viral Gucci Model Challenge, Morgan Presley will release a “#GucciAbsoluteBeginners guide to living a Gucci life” video with audio for other creators on TikTok can use to re-create their own Gucci videos.
