The 1992 film Sister Act is getting a remake. Whoopi Gooldberg starred in the original Sister Act and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.
I guess Hollywood really is out of ideas. Why are movies that were originally released during the 1990’s getting remade? Sister Act isn’t the only movie getting a remake. The Craft which was released in 1996 is also getting a remake. The original starred Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney, Rachel True and Neve Campbell.
The “Sister Act” remake is just one in a stream of remakes that Hollywood has in the works. Last month, we learned that the 1996 cult-classic “The Craft,” would get a modern makeover, and of course there is “Blade Runner,” “Gremlins,” “Police Academy,” “It” and not one, but two “Ghostbusters,” reboots. (At least one of those movies will include an all female cast, which is you know, something different).
Gremlins and Ghostbusters? Did creativity go out the window in Hollywood? Seems like Hollywood was always coming up with new ideas during the 80’s and 90’s. Nowadays it’s like pick a movie from the 80’s or 90’s, rework the original story and bam you have a 80’s or 90’s classic remade for the 21st century. I guess in the next year or so we will hear about remakes for Pulp Fiction, The Matrix and The Silence of the Lambs 😦
