‘Bring It On’ sequel is in the works according to Gabrielle Union
It's been 20 years since the first movie premiered
Gabrielle Union confirmed a sequel to “Bring It On,” with the original cast, is in pre-production.
On The Late, Late Show With James Corden, Union told the host that she will reprise her starring role as Isis in the film. The movie will return to the big screen and will also feature Kirsten Dunst.
“I think [we agreed] because we all got obsessed with Cheer on Netflix and it kind of like brought back the whole love of cheerleading, and we kinda want to see where these people would be 20 years later,” Union said.
Cheer on Netflix is a docuseries that focuses on five individual cheer team members, the history of cheerleading, the formation of the National Cheerleaders Association, and the inner workings of modern cheerleading.
PopSugar reported this future installment of “Bring It On” will be the first sequel to feature the original cast.
It has been 20 years since the release of the original movie, which spawned five direct-to-video sequels and a Broadway musical. The latest film in the series was released in 2017, and it was called “Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack.”
As Huffington Post reporter Emma Gray said, “this docu-series is a riveting, heartfelt peek into the world of elite collegiate cheerleading, something that I admit I knew painfully little about outside of fictional depictions like ‘Bring It On.’”
The hit 2000 movie has not only propelled the careers of the actors but paved the pathway for similar teen flicks involving cheerleading and competitive dance, such as “Fired Up!.”
Union, 47, has been active in several roles on TV and film. She is currently on Fox’s L.A.’s Finest as Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett alongside co-star Jessica Alba for the second season.
