In yet another sign that the studio executives have either a) ingested too many drugs, b) have no original ideas or c) both of the above, Universal Pictures has green lighted the making of American Pie 4. For release. At the movies, not straight to DVD.
Following the DVD success of the American Pie spin off’s Universal has obviously decided that there is enough juice in the American Pie franchise to justify the fourth in the series.
There is speculation that it might possibly pick up on the whereabouts of now married Jim and Michelle played by Jason Biggs and Alyson Hannigan. Bringing back all the original characters of Jim, Michelle, Stifler, Finch and that nut bag Eugene Levy who has appeared in each of the follow ups.
Most of the original cast have gone on to mediocre careers. I say hang on to that and for the love of god people, have some dignity. I never thought I would say this, but go back to mutilating 80’s cult classics, the American Pie horse is dead.
