Megan Thee Stallion, one of today’s most well-known rappers, is also interested in acting. Megan previously made some efforts in that direction and added a Marvel role to her profile. Meg recently expressed her desire to appear in the ‘Bring It On’ reboot.
Megan Thee Stallion is aiming to get a role in the upcoming Bring It On reboot. During a recent interview with The Cut, the self-described Houston Hottie discussed her acting ambitions, revealing that she’d love to play Isis, one of the starring roles in the 2000 cheerleading film. Isis was the captain of the East Compton Clovers, Rancho Carne High School Toros’ rivals.
The character was originally played by Gabrielle Union. Megan believes the role is a good fit for her. “I always have wanted to be Isis,” she said. “I would be perfect for that. If they were ever to make a new Bring It On, I should be that character.”
Union hasn’t explicitly stated that a Bring It On reboot is in the works, but she did hint at it on August 25th. On the film’s 22nd anniversary, she tweeted several stills from the film with the caption, “Hmmmm so Isis might have a teenager.” Megan Thee Stallion will have to focus on her roles in the forthcoming Marvel She-Hulk film and A24’s musical comedy Fucking Identical Twins while she waits for that call.
Megan Thee Stallion sees Queen Latifah and Ice Cube as the blueprint to making the transition from musical artist to Hollywood actor.
When I look at them, it inspires me to take it further than just music. I don’t feel like I’m only going to be an actress — I feel like I’m also going to be a director and I’m also going to be a producer.
Megan Thee Stallion, of course, has a lot of plates spinning. The Pete and Thomas Foundation has announced a partnership with the Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium for the inaugural Joy Is Our Journey Dream Bus Tour. The free festival began on August 20 and will conclude on September 16th and 17th in Birmingham, Alabama during the Black Girls Dream Conference.
Each Joy Is Our Journey Dream Bus Tour stop will also include interactive programs and activities focused on mental health, wellness, arts and culture, beauty, S.T.E.M., beauty, entrepreneurship, and dream-building for young Black girls and gender-fluid youth ages 12 to 24.
I’m really excited to have The Pete and Thomas Foundation partner with the Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium on this special initiative. We both share the same goals – to empower our young Black women, give them the resources to succeed, and help them pursue their personal and professional dreams.
Let’s see whether she gets the part. Obviously, her notable name could light up any marquee and drive interest to the project. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
