Kirsten Dunst Wants To Make And Star In A 'Bring It On' Sequel

Kirsten Dunst Wants To Make And Star In A 'Bring It On' Sequel

Bring It On, the 2000 cheerleading rivalry cult-comedy, is one of the defining American high school flicks of the era.

Teenage girls watched with wide-eyed fascination as the Toros and Clovers battled it out - and promptly tried signing up to the scarce offering of cheerleading schools in our suburban UK towns.

Now, the star of the noughties movie has just thrown her name in the hat for another sequel - and we might just be dusting off our pom-poms for this one.

Kirsten Dunst, who played head cheerleader Torrance Shipman in the flick, revealed her stance on a possible sequel to excited audiences on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

"If [the original creators] wanted to make another movie, I would make another movie," she said. "Why not? It'd be so fun."

The 37-year-old actress appeared in the first Bring It On despite there being five follow-ups, Bring It On Again (2004), Bring It On: All or Nothing (2006), Bring It On: In It to Win It (2007), Bring It On: Fight to the Finish (2009), and Bring It On: Worldwide Cheersmack (2017).

She also added that Universal Pictures, who made the film, had little expectations for its success. "We made that movie for no money, zero money," she said. "It was a Universal movie, but like one of those that they were like 'Go do what you want,' like this little cheerleading movie."

Despite this, the film grossed $17,362,105 (£14,147,000) in 2,380 cinemas during its opening weekend, ranking first in the US box office.

Suggestions of a sequel were fuelled when Kirsten Dunst and her co-star (and movie rival) Gabrielle Union starred in the same campaign for Rodarte.

"I had no idea that Gabrielle was in it too, and then it became, like, this whole Bring It On thing," she told Kelly Clarkson.

It might be time to get our spirit fingers out.
