Kirsten Dunst is open to dusting off her cheerleader uniform for another Bring It On film.

The actress recently reunited with Gabrielle Union, her co-star in the popular 2000 movie about a team preparing for cheerleading championships, for a Rodarte fashion campaign.

Accordingly, the photoshoot prompted fans to dream up a big screen get-together, and now, Dunst has shared that she would be interested in reprising her role as Torrance Shipman.

“If they wanted to make another movie, I would make another movie,” the 37-year-old said during a recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show. “Why not? It’d be so fun!

“We made that movie for no money, zero money. It was a Universal movie, but like one of those that they were like, ‘Go and do what you want’, like this little, whatever, cheerleading movie.”

Dunst went on to explain that she loves it when her projects exceed expectations.

“Opening weekend, we were all so surprised,” the star insisted. “It was huge. That’s always the best – when you don’t expect anything and then it became so huge.”

Several direct-to-video Bring It On sequels were made in the mid-2000s, but none featured the members of the original cast.

And in a recent chat with Sirius XM’s In-Depth With Larry Flick, Dunst revealed that Bring It On tends to be the film fans recognise her from, despite having starred in critically acclaimed movies like Marie Antoinette and The Beguiled, as well as in the second season of TV series Fargo.

“I’ve never been nominated for anything. Maybe like, twice for a Golden Globe when I was little and one for Fargo. I always feel like nobody – I don’t know, maybe they just think I’m the girl from Bring It On,” she commented.

Dunst is currently promoting her new TV show, On Becoming a God in Central Florida.

Kirsten Dunst put directing dreams on hold after welcoming son

Kirsten Dunst has postponed her feature directorial debut because she isn’t ready to step behind the camera after welcoming her first child.

The actress, who gave birth to son Ennis with fiance and Fargo co-star Jesse Plemons last year, has been attached to direct the film adaptation of Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar since 2016, but the star has revealed the production, once slated to star Dakota Fanning, has been shelved.

“This is the first year I’ve been a mom,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “Directing a film and having a baby… that’s two years of your life, directing, editing, and promoting all of it.

“Maybe when I’m older I’ll want to (direct) again. Right now, I have zero interest in committing myself to that.”

For now, the 37-year-old is content to stay in front of the camera as the star of U.S. network Showtime’s quirky new series On Becoming a God in Central Florida.

“I wanted to be more of an artist in my acting, instead of making tons of money being a star of every big whatever,” she added. “Post-Spider-Man, it was like, I could definitely go down this romantic comedy route… Those were really popular then, too, but it just was like, ugh, no thank you. It wasn’t for me. I hated that kind of acting. It was so hard for me to do. Thank God Sofia Coppola would sweep me away to do a Marie-Antoinette (film) in between.”

Dunst previously tried her hand at filmmaking with the short films Welcome, starring Winona Ryder and John Hawkes, and Bastard, with Brian Geraghty and Lukas Haas.

The Jumanji actress will be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on 29 August. Plemons and Coppola will be on hand to salute her as she unveils the 2,671st star near the beginning of the famous Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk at La Brea Avenue.
