Gabrielle Union Working On A 'Bring It On' Sequel About the Clovers
It’s been over 20 years since the cheerleading cult classic Bring It On debuted in theaters, Gabrielle Union reveals to ET's Denny Directo that she is working on a new sequel. "We've been developing a sequel that centers on the [Clovers]," she says, referring to the East Compton cheerleading squad, "We are working on it."
The cheerleading movie, directed by Peyton Reed, follows Toro cheer captain Torrance Shipman (Kristen Dunst) of Rancho Carne High who learns that the former captain of her championship-winning squad has been stealing routines from the Clovers, a rival cheer team from East Compton led by captain Iris (Gabrielle Union). The Clovers centered on Union, R&B girl group Blaque members Shamari Fears DeVoe, Brandi Williams, and the late Natina Reed
Union told Variety, “We’ve been developing a sequel forever,” “But for folks who don’t exactly understand how long development can take in Hollywood, that could be five minutes or 50 years.”
