Washington, Nov 15 : Oscar winning actress Whoopi Goldberg is all set to take her blockbuster flick 'Sister Act' to the stage.
The actress, who had received critical acclaim for her part as singer-turned-nun Deloris Van Cartier in the 1992 film, has written a musical version of the movie.
And now, the stage version of the story will open in London next year (09).
However, Goldberg has claimed that she has no plans to reprise her role in front of live audience.
"I'm so excited about this. It feels right to bring back Sister Act. But we can't do it the way it was done in the film," Contactmusic quoted Goldberg as telling the London Evening Standard.
She added: "It's going to be really, really spectacular and we are looking to breathe new life into the piece. I know London has a lot of musicals - but you can't beat singing nuns on stage... (The film) was nearly 20 years ago and it's time for someone equally fantastic to take the role of Deloris. We are looking at a couple of girls at the moment and I know whoever gets the part will be sensational."
