Interview: Goldberg spoke on 'The Late Late Show With James Corden'
Goldberg was the guest of actor-comedian James Corden recently on his show The Late Late Show With James Corden.
The topic of Sister Act 3 came up when Corden, a hardcore fan of Goldberg's jokes on Sister Act (a 1992 film) and its sequel Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, released a year later, asked the actor, "Why hasn't Sister Act 3 happened?"
Reason: "For a long time, no one wanted to see it"
Goldberg replied that there was no demand for such comedy years ago.
"For a long time, they kept saying no one wanted to see it. And then quite recently, it turns out, 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," she said.
