American Pie 4?

10.28.2008

AMERICAN PIE Given the success of the AMERICAN PIE direct-to-dvd spin-off franchise (there's been BAND CAMP, THE NAKED MILE and BETA HOUSE, all seemingly focusing on Stifler's endless stream of brothers), Universal has decided it may be time to add a fourth entry to the original theatrical franchise. According to Clint over at Moviehole, an official announcement is imminent. The question is whether they can convince any of the original cast members to come back for a fourth. Clint speculates a fourth could center on Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle's (Alyson Hannigan) marriage with or without kids or perhaps they'll just take one character - Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), Oz (Chris Klein) or Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) - and work a story around him or her. We don't know at this point but it doesn't matter, really.

Extra Tidbit: Shannon Elizabeth kinda needs this, at least career-wise. Maybe they can focus the flick on Nadia.

they all need to come back except

Stiffler is the only person with a real career. The others dont have careers and they are 1 step away from lifetime movies so they will all show up but maybe not Sean William Scott

Not sure

You could probably fairly easily bring everyone back. Stiffler is the only one getting any kind of consistant work, if you film the movie during How I Met Your Mother's hiatus.

I could either see it going in one of 3 ways.

1) American Baby. Jim and Michelle's 1st child is due.
2) American Holiday. Willard & Levy's idea.
3) Stiffler gets married, except the only problem being that Stiffler tends to be the primary comedic source, outside of Jim's shenanigans.

I don't see Shannon

I don't see Shannon Elizabeth coming back as she doesn't serve a plot role any longer. She hooked up with "the Sherminator" and is no longer the primary love interest of any of the guys... unless they use her to "test" Jim's marriage... but he's already turned her down once for Michelle.

I'm sure Tara Reid would love the paycheck either way.

Normally I'd say this is a horrible idea, but if they decided to focus the movie on Nadia, that might not be such a bad thing. ;)

My best memory from American Pie comes from Nadia . . . and I'm pretty sure we all know why!

This could be good, but if they can't get all, or at least most, of the cast, then there's no point. Just make another crappy spinoff.

Would love it

Tenebre, I know what you mean about Oz but the film started off with those 5 guys (including the Stiffmeister) and I thought it was a real shame he was missing from the 3rd. Maybe he had no story to be in the 3rd but a cameo for the sake of it being one of his best friends wedding was surely needed for me and is the only thing in the series I'd change.

I love the 3 main films and could watch them over and over, enjoying them just as much every time. I watch them every time they're on tv

I love the 3 main films and could watch them over and over, enjoying them just as much every time. I watch them every time they're on tv and just have a real good laugh when they're on. If they can pull everyone back then definitely bring it on. If people start saying no then drop the idea, even if it's just one member of the crew.

The Christmas idea sounds ok though, good one.

Sure why not?

Its not like they are prying these people away from anything better.

I still like Eugene Levy and Fred Willards idea. "American Christmas" A jewish family and a catholic family together for the holidays, antics ensue. Stifler can come back easily because of his romance with the sister. I think it could actually be funny.

First of all, there's no point in bringing back Chris Klein, he was never funny, his whole story was centered on him hooking up with Mena Suvari, and continuing with their story arc was pointless in the second film anyway. They were right to leave both characters out of the third film and should do the same here.

I doubt they'll get Stiffler back since he's the only one consistently getting work after the American Pie franchise anyway.

Just center it on Jim, Michelle, and maybe a cameo

I liked 2 of the 3 American Pie straight to dvd spinoffs so I dont think it would be all that bad.

Get Eugene Levy those Caterpillars he calls eyebrows and the rest of the cast back together Id see it.

Shannon Elizabeth

She is actually a very successful poker player on tour these days. She probably makes more doing that than what she would as a C level actress each year.
