The Movie "School Daze" turns 25-year-old and director/writer Spike Lee has confirmed that a script for the sequel has been completed. "School Daze" was loosely based on Spike Lee's experiences at Atlanta's Morehouse College, Spelman College and Clark Atlanta University.
The story follows rival fraternity and sorority members at a historically black college during homecoming weekend. The movie also touched on issues within the African-American community, such as skin tone and hair quality.
“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,” 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.”
Spike says the sequel will examine the same issues young college students faced in the late eighties and will also touch on new issues students face in college today.
