The Bring it on franchise adds a slasher movie to its lineup of movies.
The cheerleading comedy series, which launched with the first in 2000 Bring it on starring Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union, has spawned a number of sequels over the years, most recently Bring it on: Worldwide #Cheersmack.
However, it has since been confirmed that a sequel movie will be called a slasher Bring it on: Halloween coming to Syfy next year.
The film features a contentious cheerleading group ‘held by restrictive rules’ and ‘seeking the freedom of a creepy, closed-back gym to practice for regionals’ (via Weekly entertainment).

Meanwhile, Union teased the possibility of one last year Bring it on continued with the cast of the original movie returning, recalling a recent panel she did with Dunst during a performance at The Late Late Show with James Corden.
“We were all like, ‘We’re in, we’re absolutely in,’” she said. “It is definitely going to happen.
‘I think because we all became obsessed with it Cheer on Netflix, ”Union added. “It brought back all the love for cheerleading, and we really want to see where the people would be twenty years later.”
Last year, Bring it on screenwriter Jessica Bendinger and director Peyton Reed discussed the possibility of bringing the cast back together in an interview with Variety.
“Peyton and I have had nice conversations over the years,” said Bendinger. “We are very excited about the idea of possibly pursuing this. We don’t have anything to announce explicitly, but we’ve talked about it intermittently for years. ”
Reed added, “We have some really, really fun and specific ideas we’re working on. So we like the idea of that Bring it on could possibly be of this generation because the hunger for cheerleading and that whole world has only grown since we made that movie 20 years ago. ”
