During a recent interview with “The View,” the filmmaker gushed about the EGOT-winning actress, who stars in his upcoming movie “Nobody’s Fool.”

“I was writing the mother role and I thought, ‘Oh, if she would do this I would be so honored.’ I called and when she said ‘yes,’ we were all like, ‘Oh my God. She is coming.’”

And Perry hopes Goldberg will be a frequent collaborator. He has a few other projects up his sleeve for the star.

“We’re talking about a few things,” he revealed. “I think there should be a new ‘Sister Act’ [with] Tiffany Haddish and Whoopi Goldberg.”

The first “Sister Act” debuted in 1992 and followed Goldberg’s character Deloris Clarence, who entered a witness protection program as a nun after seeing a crime mob. In the sequel, she returns as a nun to teach music to a group of Catholic students. 

No word yet on possible story lines, but Perry said a third “Sister Act” should definitely happen. Take a look at the full clip below.
