23 years after it was first released, a Sister Act remake is on the way.

Sister Act 1 was one of the biggest box office successes of the Nineties, grossing over €200 million in ticket sales worldwide.

A sequel, Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit, was made just one year later, a Broadway musical followed in 2006, and now it seems we're getting to meet Sister Mary Clarence and co once again.

Writers Kristen Smith and Karen McCullah, the brains behind Legally Blonde, 10 Things I Hate About You and She's The Man have already signed on to create the new film, and we're told work has already begun.

It's unclear whether the new film will be a sequel to Sister Act 1 and 2, or whether it will reimagine the story all over again, but if the writers have any sense at all they'll be begging the films' star Whoopi Goldberg to get on board.

In the original film, which was released in 1992, lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier ends up joining a convent of nuns as part of a witness protection programme. While she's there, she takes it upon herself to revamp the church choir, with mixed results.

Disney are keeping tight-lipped about the plot details for the revamp, so for now we're just going to keep listening to this on repeat:
