Universal Confirms Fourth Theatrical American Pie Movie

Universal Pictures has hired ‘Harold and Kumar’ screenwriters Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to pen a new theatrical movie in the ‘American Pie’ franchise, the LA Times reported on February 18. The studio hopes to reboot the original trilogy, whose last theatrical release was 2003’s ‘American Wedding.’ Four direct-to-DVD ‘American Pie Presents:’ sequels have been released since, but to little acclaim.

The new movie would be the fourth installment in the original ‘American Pie’ series, after 1999’s ‘American Pie,’ 2001’s ‘American Pie 2’ and ‘American Wedding.’ Rather than be a reboot of the original, it would be a sequel to ‘American Wedding,’ picking up where that movie left off and focusing on the original characters. The ‘American Pie Presents:’ sequels only featured a couple of the characters from the original trilogy as minor characters, and instead focused on family members of Seann William Scott’s Stifler character.

Universal hopes to get back most, if not all, of the original trilogy’s cast, which also includes Jason Biggs, Shannon Elizabeth, Tara Reid and Alyson Hannigan, who is one of the only actors to achieve post-‘American Pie’ fame in the hit CBS comedy ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ However, none of the actors have been confirmed yet.
