This year marked the 25th anniversary of School Daze.
In years past, there’s been some interest in a sequel, but not much had occurred… until now. Famed director Spike Lee sat down with Black&Sexy TV and mentioned one interesting fact—there’s a script completed!
“I had the script for School Daze,” said Lee. “But, what people have to understand is that it’s a contemporary version. So it’s the same school, Mission College, 25 years later,” explained Lee. “Hopefully I can get Laurence Fishburne to play Dap. He’ll be the president now of the school. And we would deal with issues around Historically Black Colleges today.”
He went on to mention that some of the new film will tackle many of the same issues that plagued youth in the late ’80s, while other aspects of the film will tackle new subjects including the pledging process and homophobia.
Would you be excited for an updated version of School Daze? And who would you cast in the musical?
