Beyoncé Van Cartier? Sister Mary Carter?

bey.JPGIt's rumored that between performances for her I Am...Sasha Fierce tour in the UK, Beyoncé stopped by a performance of the musical adaptation of Sister Act playing in London and really liked it. A lot. So much, in fact, that she may be pushing for the musical to be transposed to film and for her to take on the lead role as Deloris Van Cartier, a.k.a. Sister Mary Clarence, originated by the incomparable Whoopi Goldberg. Allegedly, this idea is being shopped to Disney and is prospecting Meryl Streep for the role of Mother Superior. Right. It's extremely early to tell where this is going, the speculative shooting dates aren't until 2011, but rest assured that Sasha will not stop trying to convince us all that she is an actress. This news could definitely use a prayer. [MO]

    No disrespect to the extraordinary performer that Beyonce is but if anyone other than Whoopi plays Sister Mary Clarence, I will be very upset. I still listen to my Sister Act 2 soundtrack to this day. That and the "Above the Rim" soundtrack puts me in High School all over again.

    Bey's working real hard on that 'legend' status, isn't she? Hell-bent on destroying movie roles left and right.

    First, let's be honest. I have no love, whatsoever, for the Knowles camp (save Solange, but she barely gets a pass). But this would be a transgression WAAAY outside of any of that other crap "acting" she's done so far.
    I wish she would stop trying to force her way into EVERY household on the planet. IF they make a movie (which they shouldn't, seeing that the source material IS a movie itself), let someone else get a chance to shine.

    What is it with the whole 'remake' phenomenon? Aint nobody got any original ideas anymore?
    As for Bey taking on the role of Sister Mary Clarence ... nobody will EVER fill Whoopi's shoes so let her do it. Hopefully this will be the last nail in the coffin of her movie career because she aint gonna touch the original!
    Sadly it will probably transpire that she does the remake, it grosses millions in it's first weekend (because it's Beyonce, not because the film is any good) and she'll continue to be touted as the all-round diva/superstar who can't put a foot wrong!
    [BTW i'm not a Beyonce 'hater' ... i'll put my hands up and say I really enjoyed Dreamgirls]
