Deadline has confirmed that yet another cast member will be returning to the newest film in the American Pie franchise, American Reunion. Shannon Elizabeth will be returning and she’ll join a cast which is looking pretty good right now. Seann William Scott, Jason Biggs, Eugene Levy, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari, Jennifer Coolidge and Allyson Hannigan have all agreed to return, making this a true reunion.
Being one of my favorite comedy series of all time, this is great news. The first three American Pie films were great, and although the spinoffs were rather lame, this one has potential. Especially since the original cast is returning. That was the problem with the spinoffs, aside from maybe one or two people, none of the cast was the same. American Wedding was the last true American Pie film. So to see the whole gang back together again has me very excited.
Sure, most of the cast is washed up and hasn’t done anything notable since, but that doesn’t mean the movie won’t be good. The original gang was great together, all the characters had their moments and they all brought a lot to the film. And plus, it will be nice to see some of these people on the big screen again in a film that’s actually worth seeing.
Look for the film when it hits theatres on April 6th, 2012.
