Remember the American Pie series? Well you may only remember the first 3, after that the series kind of went downhill, very downhill. And the reason for that is because the original cast only stayed on board for three films. And let’s be honest, it was the cast that made those films so great. American Pie 1, 2 and the third one, American Wedding are still amongst the funniest movies I’ve ever seen and I’ve been waiting forever for a proper American Pie 4.
Well, today seems to be my lucky day! Jason Biggs, Eugene Levy and Seann William Scott have signed on for a fourth American Pie film, called American Reunion. Biggs, Levy and Scott all had major roles in the first three films and now that they’re on board, I think some of the other cast members may return.
In fact, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari and Jennifer Coolidge are all in negotiations although none have signed on yet. The only name that’s missing is Alyson Hannigan. While I’d love to see her return, it’s not likely she will. She has moved on from the series and out of all the original cast, has probably become the most successful, with her hit TV show How I Met Your Mother. Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the guys who created Harold and Kumar, will write and direct.
What do you think? Are you ready for an American Reunion? I sure am!
