American Pie 5 Cooking At Universal

%name American Pie 5 Cooking At Universal

It looks like the nostalgia of American Reunion was more infectious than many may have deduced, as according to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal has secured Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (the writing/directing of April’s four-quel) for American Pie 5.

Like Scream 4 and the soon-to-be-released Scary Movie 5, long-overdue sequels to dredged-up properties have the propensity to see dwindling box office returns. Unsurprisingly, such was the case with American Reunion – domestically at least.

Worldwide, the return of Jim, Oz and Stifler amassed a huge $233.6 million, which was right on par with the gross of the series in its heyday, and a nearly-five-fold return on investment (facts the studio was unlikely to overlook).

Even more important (for viewers at least) was that American Reunion was actually a reasonably strong return for the decade-old series and was well received by original fans and new generations (even if the critical consensus was less than glowing). What remains to be seen is if there is more of a story to tell with these characters now that that the novelty of their return has begun to wear off.

Upon what adventures the high school buds would embark in American Pie 5 are practically non-existent, as Hurwitz and Schlossberg have just been courted by Universal to return for a fifth outing. Also unknown is if the entire principle cast will again return but when examining the commitments of anyone whose names aren’t Seann William Scott and Alyson Hannigan, it seems likely if the paycheque is right.

Hurwitz and Schlossberg are also the writing duo behind the three “Harold and Kumar” films (as well as directorial for the last two), so their comedic credentials are consistently strong (if gross-out, stoner humour is your thing). So what will it be for American Pie 5? “American Vacation?” “American Christmas?” “Jim and Stifler: Escape From Guantanamo Bay?”

Whatever the story, are you excited for another slice of the pie?

Anyway i agree MAKE IT HAPPEN AMERICAN PIE 5 ALL THE WAY!!!

  • Martin

    Hell yes, it could more slice of American Pie and to the next step….

  • BCrosby

    This is the stupidest thing ever. American Pie 1 & 2 were good, Wedding was ‘meh’, Reunion was awesome. But it was made 13 years later. Right around the time when everyone who grew up with the originals were having or just had their High School Reunions. This movie was nothing more than a look back on your glory days. To make a 5th movie would beat a horse to death and I doubt it would do very good. And like the Band Camp movies will fade into obscurity. UNIVERSAL – Leave it alone. It was good, don’t kill it.

    they should make an American Pie 5, if Jason Biggs gets fired from Nickelodeon, then they could just hopefully have him make a 5th pie film. this one should be a american pie christmas film.

    I like LA Confidential, Science of the Lambs, the Godfather series, Terminator, Brazil, The Big Lebowski, Bandwagon, and the American Pie series. American Reunion is the best thing of 2012.

    • Bogan Hater

      Really fucking relevant to the thread you bogan fuckwit

  • Mandar

    Maybe Jim’s Dad and Stiffler’s Mom get married with each other and Jim and Stiffler who somehow have to manage to be part of one family and this ensues in some hilarious comedy.

  • Steve

    I think it should be about Jim’s Dad marrying Stifler’s Mom and Jim being pissed about being part of Stifler’s family, its good because you keep stifler whos the fan favourite and Jim whos the main character.

  • Jizm
