After several straight-to-DVD spin-offs, it looks like the American Pie franchise is returning to theaters once again. According to The Wrap, Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott and Eugene Levy have signed on to the film – currently titled American Reunion – with folks like Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari and Jennifer Coolidge in talks as we speak. Alyson Hannigan and Shannon Elizabeth are also wanted for roles, though there’s no word on how those negotiations are going, especially since Hannigan currently stars on a TV show and probably has a hectic schedule.
i didnt mind watching the American Pies but it was on a very late nite and there was nothing else to watch but i enjoyed it where it was. not to see it back in the movies Hmmmm well if the have New writters and the whole cast is back then maybe.
I am curious to see what they do with it, especially if they bring back the original cast. American Wedding was rather lackluster, but I loved the second American Pie film.
after band camp, they kind of sucked, but the ones with the original were awesome so i think the reunion could have amazing potential. :)
They need a baby born..in this one so the Stiffmeister can babysit...while the reunion goes on.
Think about that angle... poop in face and mouth....
I'll go see it for sure!!
Yes! American Pie ruuuuuuules :D
If SCREAM 4 can be remade - why can't American Pie?! I say go for it. If the original cast signs on, I'm sure it'll be funny. :)
Considering there are 7 American Pie movies and pies are generally cut into 8 slices, it would seem to reason that one more was needed to complete the 'pie'. I cant wait, i loved the first 3.
I'm game for yet another one. as long as it involves Stifler having to care for a metric butt ton of kids... lol and the love Guru Meeting a New Cougar.. Maybe someone like Demi Moore, Jeri Ryan, or Elizabeth Hurley.
I think it will be funny but not worth seeing in theatres :P. I look forward to renting it.
I think it will be great! I love the idea of this much time going by and presenting it as a high school reunion! I know my 10 year reunion was a blast and really interesting with the reuniting of classmates, both friends and foes after all of that time so I think this will ROCK!
I loved all 3 movies with the original cast so I am more than amped to see what 4 will be like
YES, IT WILL BE GREAT IF THEY KEEP THE ORIG CAST IN PLACE
I think t they've milked the first movie success to death, let it rest. I cringe just watching trailers for AP spinoffs. The original premise was cool b/c it dealt w/ honest high school boys. And it was edgy for the 90's. The same jokes when they're old and married aren't as funny. Though I do like Harold and Kumar, which is also losing its edge.
I do agree to a certain degree. Now that these 4 boys have grown to men so it may be even funnier. "Grown Ups" was a very funny movie and they took us from their childhood to adults so I really think that it will greatly depend on the new AP how the script is written.
American Pie 4: AKA we've run out of ideas for movies, so lets just start having sequels b/c the publc will go see anything. Hey, Hollywod, how about some ORIGINAL movies for once? No sequels, no remakes. AP 1 & 2 were funny. 3 was an abortion. Let #4 go please....
The reason why there are no original movies is because there are no original story lines left. Not even Avatar was original. No matter what you may think is original, it will always be comparable to, and be parallel to, some other movie, show, or book. Don't like it? Stop watching movies or suck it up and deal with it.
I can deal with parallel comparisons but the remakes are getting out of control. Every movie is being remade, Parallel or not, come up with original story lines and stop it already with the sequels and remakes, it's annoying.
A sequel isn't a remake though. A remake is more commonly known as a reboot (see: Spiderman). A sequel is a continuation of a story, even if it's, for all intents and purposes, the same thing.
I'm well aware of the definition of a sequel, thank you. I said sequel AND remakes. Which means I was talking about BOTH. I.E. - American Pie 4 (sequel...not needed) and Author (remake....not needed). A remake is a more recent version of an older film (Author, The Day the Earth Stood Still, etc). A reboot is when you're kicking off an old "series" (Star Trek 2009, etc).
Agreed. They are 2 totally different things however, I do feel the point that NickA33 is attempting to make. For the fact that Hollywood is basically trying to change original movies (classics) and update them for the new generation is farfetched for the fact that they change the story so much from the original. I have had my "why are they doing this?" stage but as you stated you either see them or not it is always a choice and that choice is yours to make.
i Agree Avatar was a cowboys and indians but there are really no ideas left in hollywood and i aways figyred this as a child when the ideas run out then what....? now i see that they make tv shows like Bewitched and Dukes a Hazzed into a movie.
I thought Inception was pretty original.
Hey , I have to totally agree with you on the fact of no original story lines being left, but what exactly do you mean about Avatar not being original?
Avatar was basically Fern Gully and Pocahontas, yes, the story was told in an original way, but the fact remains that the story itself, at it's core, is unoriginal.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
