Uh oh! Does that mean they’re also getting sued over Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit???
We’ve just learned that a New York nun who claims her “autobiography was the inspiration for the Sister Act movie and musical” is suing Disney!
According to NY nun Delois Blakely, she was a “young, black, singing nun serving the street people and youths of Harlem,” and she believes her 1987 book The Harlem Street Nun was used as the basis for Sister Act.
Blakely is saying that she “penned a three-page synopsis of a film based on her autobiography” and she is also saying that a movie exec express interest in obtaining the rights to the project.
She has filed a lawsuit against both Disney and Sony Pictures for “breach of contract, misappropriation of likeness, and unjust enrichment.”
We just hope they’re able to get this all figured out! Sister Act is a classic, and it would be a shame for the film/musical to be marred with this!
What do U think? Was the storyline for Sister Act stolen???
