After more than 25 years, Spike Lee will be working on a sequel to his musical School Daze. The film which starred Laurence Fishburne, Giancarlo Esposito, Tisha Campbell-Martin and Spike himself has a completed script for the second installment, as confirmed by Lee during an exclusive interview.
Lee told Black&Sexy TV, “I had the script for ‘School Daze. But, what people have to understand is that it’s a contemporary version. So it’s the same school, Mission College, 25 years later. 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.”
The film will continue to touch on some of the same issues, including historically black colleges, pledging for fraternities and sororities, skin color and hair complexes, as well as racism in the African American community.
No word yet on who from the previous cast will join the sequel, but we look forward to hearing more.
