Proposal For A New 'Bring It On' Film Catches The Attention Of Gabrielle Union And Ryan Destiny

September 25th 2018

Arguably the film that solidified the long-running career of Gabrielle Union-Wade, Bring It On holds a special place in the extensive canon of teen comedies and a special place in the hearts of fans of the long-running cheerleading franchise.

Eighteen years after the comedy took the box office by storm, it has gained new life, all thanks to Black Twitter.

In a Twitter message that was posted over the weekend, @ItsHippyPotter proposed a remake of Bring It On, only with Gabrielle Union as the coach of the Clovers, with Star lead Ryan Destiny, who has been noted to bear a resemblance to Union, as the new cheer captain.

Apparently, Twitter latched on to the idea and the tweet circulated, even garnering the attention of Union who tweeted, "hmmmm and I'm thinking less "coach' and more Mama June." The tweet even caught the attention of Ryan Destiny, who exclaimed that the pitch took on a life of its own.

Pitching films on Twitter is nothing new, with Black Twitter taking on the mantle, with proposals of a film starring former The Wire stars Michael B. Jordan and Idris Elba going viral, as well as a viral photo, with Luptia Nyong'o that  eventually laid the seed for a film set to be written by Issa Rae  and reportedly directed by Ava DuVernay. Hopefully, this Twitter pitch will spur film executives to seriously consider a new Bring It On movie.
