According to The Hollywood Reporter Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott and Eugene Levy have signed up to appear in American Reunion, the fourth theatrical outing from the American Pie franchise. Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari and Jennifer Coolidge are also in negotiations to reprise their roles.
American Pie (1999), American Pie 2 (2001) and American Wedding (2003) made $754 million at the worldwide box office, and spawned 4 direct-to-DVD spin-offs. The franchise is a cash cow for Universal, and now that people aren’t buying as many DVDs as before the studio is hoping the audience is still there for another big screen outing.
No story details have been revealed, but the title and returning cast members gives a pretty clear indication of what to expect. Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, who wrote and directed Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay have written the script and will direct. Paul and Chris Weitz, who directed the first movie, are producing.
