Bring It On’s director and screenwriter have teased the possibility of a cinematic universe inspired by the classic teen film.

(Before we continue, can we just put this out there: a Bring It On/10 Things I Hate About You crossover would be epic!)

The hit movie – which explored the cutthroat world of competitive cheerleading and starred Kirsten Dunst as cheer captain Torrance – this month celebrates its 20 year anniversary.

Reflecting on its legacy in a conversation with Variety, director Peyton Reed and screenwriter Jessica Bendinger discussed what the film’s memorable characters (remember Jesse Bradford as the achingly cool love interest Cliff?) would be doing today.

Bendinger replied: ‘I don’t know. We’re excited to think about it.’

Shook.

Reed chimed in: ‘Someone told me last year in the context of a Marvel conversation about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, someone said, “You guys should really make a ‘Bring It On’ Cinematic Universe.”

‘We started talking about it and were like, “Wait a second,” and started devising certain things that got us really really excited. And I think that’s all we can say about it right now.’

This sounds very, very promising.

Bendinger then added: ‘I will say, we really love the Sparky Polastri character…’

Sparky Polastri, by the way, was the mysterious coach of spirit fingers fame.

The hit movie also starred Gabrielle Union and Eliza Dushku.

It has already spawned a franchise, with five direct-to-video sequels and Bring It On: The Musical.
