Nearly thirty years after the last Sister Act sequel, Whoopi Goldberg has some ideas on what the upcoming film in the franchise should be called.

“Listen, do you know how many sequels have been done? People are like in their 90s and they’re doing sequels, of something that they did 50 years ago,” Goldberg told host Stephen Colbert Tuesday on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

“I thought those nuns deserved to have another go around and have some fun,” The View co-host said.

The production still doesn’t have an official title, although Goldberg offered up some options.

“Oh My God It Still Fits,” Goldberg said as she brainstormed.  “Backer in the Habit,” Colbert countered as an idea.

“Blacker in the Habit. That could work,” Goldberg then added. “Black in the Habit—I like that,” Colbert told the Sister Act star.

Last week, Disney announced that the comedy film is currently in production and will be released on Disney+, with Goldberg and Tyler Perry set to co-produce.

CNN reported Goldberg will reprise her role as Deloris Van Cartier, a lounge singer who relocated to a convent as a nun after being forced into the witness protection program.

The original film was released in 1992. The sequel, Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, arrived in theaters a year later. No release date has been announced for the upcoming film.

Goldberg will next be seen as Mother Abigail in CBS All-Access’ The Stand, which will start streaming Dec 17. The miniseries is based off of the 1978 post-apocalyptic book by Stephen King.
