As far as classic teen films go, Bring It On is pretty iconic. Though it missed the cut off as a ’90s hit since it debuted in 2000, it helped usher in an entirely new sub-genre of teen films. The dance flick sparked a whole new way for teens to express their angst and joy during their high school years. Following Bring It On, films like Save the Last Dance and Step Up brought in new stars, new moves and most importantly, ridiculously good soundtracks. It’s been 15 years since Bring It On first hit the big screen and the rivalry between the East Compton Clovers and the Rancho Carne High Toros was initiated. To celebrate, the films’ stars Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, Gabrielle Union, and Jesse Bradford recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to chat about the film.
Apparently, Dunst was reluctant to take on the role at first, because the film was originally called Cheer Fever. Dushku did a split in her audition which won her her role. Union didn’t have to audition because she’d been in a lot of teen flicks, and Bradford snagged the gig because he was super inspired by the film’s director, Peyton Reed.
