Kirsten Dunst open to a ‘Bring It On’ remake — on 1 condition

She’s ready to top the pyramid once more.

Kirsten Dunst is open to potentially doing a remake of the 2000 hit film “Bring It On” — under one condition.

“People want us to make another ‘Bring It On,’ too,” Dunst, 41, told GQ in its April cover story, “[but] the script would have to be really good.”

“I don’t know what our positions would be or whatever,” Dunst continued. “I talked to Peyton Reed, the director, about it.”

In “Bring It On,” Dunst stars as the captain of the Toro cheerleading squad as they compete against the Clovers for the top prize at the Daytona Beach, Florida, cheer competition.

The “Civil War” actress pointed out that ” ‘Mean Girls’ got redone” and women her “age are the most powerful viewers, in a weird way.”

Dunst — who went viral when she tripped at the Academy Awards while taking a picture with her husband, Jesse Plemons — lamented the fact she was never asked to help produce the cult-classic film.

“I wish I would have been a producer on ‘Bring It On,’ you know,” she went on. “Nobody even thought to ask for that, and it was a huge success. And then I would have been a producer on all the other ones they made after that.

“But I didn’t – it’s not like I’m getting anything from it.”

Dunst played Torrance Shipman, the captain of the Toro cheerleading squad who competes at the Daytona Beach, Florida, cheer competition against a rival high school team, the Clovers. [Spoiler alert: The Clovers won.]

Dunst’s film was so successful it spawned six direct-to-DVD sequels as well as a short-lived Broadway musical.

The “Melancholia” actress is also best known for playing Mary Jane Watson in the “Spider-Man” franchise.

“I would have,” she said when asked if she was approached to make a cameo in 2021’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which featured her former co-star Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

“It would be funny to be like, OK, let’s take Tobey [Maguire] and I and do it in a weird indie way where it’s like a different kind of superhero film,” she said. “Like how they did that movie ‘Chronicle’. It could be cool.”

Last month, Dunst said that she used to hate being called a “girly-girl” by members of the film’s crew.

“It was a joke, but on ‘Spider-Man,’ they would call me ‘girly-girl’ sometimes on the walkie-talkie,” Dunst recalled.

Prior to the #MeToo movement, Dunst explained that one of the unspoken rules in Hollywood was: “You didn’t say anything. You just took it.”

In 2021, Dunst also said that Maguire, 48, was paid more money, and opened up about the pay disparity in 2017.

“Because I was young, I thought, ‘Oh wow, I’m getting paid a lot of money for the ‘Spider-Man’ movies,’ ” she stated. “But definitely the men were getting paid more.”
