Whoopi Goldberg has insisted 'Sister Act 3' is "still on the way".

The 68-year-old actress - who plays Deloris Van Cartier in the film franchise - has reassured fans the third movie in the series is still in the works, and she described the motion picture as "percolating".

She told PEOPLE: "It’s still on the way! It’s percolating.

Appearing to refer to the studio, Goldberg joked: "They have not said, 'We’re over you and this movie.' "

Goldberg also admitted the script is yet to have been completed.

She said: "We’re still in the process of writing the script."

Quizzed on whether she is involved in creating the script, she said: "Yes and no. It’s hard to do everything.

"And I like to think that I can, but I’ve come to the understanding that I can’t do as much stuff simultaneously, as I’d like to."

In October 2022, Goldberg admitted she would love Nicki Minaj, Lizzo, and Keke Palmer to be cast in 'Sister Act 3'.

Speaking to host Charlamagne Tha God on Comedy Central’s 'Hell of A Week', she said: "I want everybody. I want as many people who want to have some fun, because I really, desperately need to have some fun."

In the same month, Goldberg gave an update about the hotly-anticipated sequel, admitting she was "waiting for a script at the end of the month".

In September 2022, Goldberg admitted she and Jenifer Lewis were "so ready" to film 'Sister Act 3', which is in the works with Disney.

Speaking to Lewis on 'The View' at the time, Goldberg said: "You know we’re still going to do that movie.

"And I’d do everything I can to work with her because she’s fun."

Lewis, who starred as Michelle in the 1992 original 'Sister Act' film, revealed she encouraged Goldberg to use her own singing voice in the movie.

She said: "They were going to use my voice and I told Whoopi, ‘Look, you just get in this mirror with the two of us, and you just get a hairbrush and pretend that we’re 15 years old singing Gladys Knight and the Pips.’ and Whoopi did it, she sang her little booty off."

The original motion picture saw Goldberg's character, lounge singer Van Cartier, forced to join a convent after being placed in a witness protection programme.
