Gabrielle Union, who portrayed iconic Clovers cheerleader Isis in the beloved 2000 movie, has confirmed that she and co-star Kirsten Dunst are ready to get to work on a follow-up film. "We actually did like a public panel a couple of weeks ago and they asked about it," Union told James Corden on The Late Late Show. "And we all were like, 'We're in, like we're absolutely in.' So, you heard it here."
When Corden asked if a sequel is "absolutely, genuinely going to happen," the 47-year-old actress replied that it is. "Absolutely, it's absolutely going to happen," Union assured Corden. "I think because like we got obsessed with Cheer on Netflix and, you know, it kind of brought back the whole love of cheerleading."
She added, "We kind of want to see where these people would be 20 years later."
While Bring It On inspired a series of spinoff films, Union and Dunst—who played cheer rival Torrance in the original movie—were not a part of them. However, it sounds like the time is right for the duo to come back together on the mat. In August, the stars virtually reunited for a panel discussion in celebration of the movie's 20th anniversary.
In the discussion, director Peyton Reed noted that Dunst passed on the film, originally called Cheer Fever. "I was in Prague doing like this really crappy movie," Dunst recalled. And while she was "fascinated" by cheerleading competitions at the time, the actress knew the movie "was a risk."
Thankfully though, Dunst ended up reconsidering.
"I remember the reason I did the movie is talking to Peyton," the 38-year-old star said. "I was like, 'He's so cool and smart and he's gonna do something really special with it.' That's what I did think when I talked to Peyton."
