More Pie for Biggs and co?

Teen franchise gets big screen resurrection…

 

Fact: the American Pie series has degenerated into a slew of grossly unfunny DTV sequels.

But word on the Hollywood street is that a fourth ‘official’ American Pie movie – i.e. one involving all of the original characters like Stifler, Jim, Oz, Nadia and Michelle – is on the cards over at Universal.

The studio is looking to resurrect the cinema end of the franchise while all-but ignoring the turd-like DTV follow-ups that did the series little favours.

Screenscribes Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, who penned the Harold And Kumar films, have been approached to write American Pie 4.

The last big screen outing for the Pie series was American Wedding way back in 2003. Four DTV spin-offs followed, the last of which - The Book Of Love - was released last year. Nobody noticed. Eugene Levy is the only actor who has appeared in all seven. These guys are pretty shocked about that...

So, where would a fourth ‘true’ Pie flick go?

Speculation is rife that it could centre around a 10 year high school reunion (American Reunion?), or simply pick up Jim and Michelle’s lives as they hit a bump in their marriage (could kids be on the table? eating pie?)...

No stars are attached just yet, but Biggs hasn't made a decent film since, well, 2003. We expect all of the former leads will gladly come running back for another helping.

What would you like to see from a fourth filthy Pie flick?

      I don't think any of them have actually made a decent film full stop. What's with the Josh Winning bashing?

      Stifler's mom was butt ugly.

      I think this is a good idea and would love to see the old cast back together for a fouth time. It would be a shame to end the franchise lurking in the awful depths of sraight to TV releases. [Link removed. Please don't spam your own site/blog].

      10 year reunion is a good idea, I would like to see Michelle on a band camp reunion so can centre on Jim having freedom from the missus getting into same old situations with the boys, maybe feeling a little 7 year itch and lusting after Nadia again

      While hardly a classic, I felt there was a certain fun to be enjoyed from the American Pie films which might be a little sad if done form an older perspective. Sean William Scott, while not entire in great films, has done some decent roles since, he might not want to lower himself back down. Alyson Hannigan has the excellent 'How I Met Your Mother' and so might not be too interested either. There's a point... Barney Stinson the movie... now that's an idea lol

      If they made a good go of it then i'd be glad see another one, but it they don't get sean william scott back (who would I expect be the hardest to tempt.) then they shouldn't bother. The others will all be desperate to make this movie. Hopefully Chris Klein (AKA the worst actor ever) is not involved.
