‘School Daze’ Sequel in the Works

SCHOOL DAZE POSTER

Is a possible ‘School Daze’ sequel in the works? According to the movie’s writer/director/producer Spike Lee, the answer is… MAYBE.

Over the weekend Lee participated in a round table discussion with Black&Sexy TV where he was asked about the longstanding rumor of a sequel/remake. Below is what Lee had to say.

“I had the script for [the sequel] to School Daze… a contemporary version, same school… 25 years later. Hopefully I can get Laurence Fishburne to play Dap… he’ll be the president now of the school. It would deal with issues in HSBCUs today… some of the same stuff from the last film… like the pledging process… but also lots of new stuff… like homophobia… it’s a big subject in it… class issues, color, hair texture… but it’s stuff happening today.”

Spike didn’t reveal whether he would seek for any other original cast members to reprise their roles, or if he even had a distribution deal. At the moment he is probably more corned with his Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for his next film.

At any rate, the original ‘School Daze’ was classic and if anyone can do the sequel justice it is Spike himself.
