Anyone miss this series? It's been about seven years, you have to wonder will it be a reboot or a remake?
Comingsoon.net reports that according the Craig Perry, American Pie 4 will be a sequel! If you remember, the last one titled, American Wedding was around Jim (Jason Briggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) getting hitched. So now, is it about having kids, meeting the parents? Oh wait, that's another movie »

American Pie producer Craig Perry has revealed that he is hopeful of bringing back the original cast for the fourth film in the series, despite it being seven years since the release of American Pie: The Wedding. Speaking to Comingsoon.net, Perry also said that he was aware scheduling could be a major issue. "A lot of it has to do with scheduling of the actors because they're all busy. Alyson [Hannigan's] got the show [How I Met Your Mother] and the baby, so she's got plenty on her plate," he stated. "I think if we get a script - which I think we will - that everybody is excited about, (more) »

Earlier this year it was reported that Universal Pictures hired Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle writers and directors, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, to develop a fourth American Pie film. In a recent interview with producer Craig Perry, it was reveled that the the new American Pie film will not be a reboot or a remake, but it will be an actual sequel to the original trilogy, which will bring the original gang back together again.
Here are Perry's thoughts on the American Pie 4 project, and where it currently stands:
Like anything, if they're going to go back to it, they want to get it right. Hurwitz and Schlossberg, the guys who did ‘Harold and Kumar' are going to direct and I'm hoping to have something to look at it in the New Year. We'll see when that fits in. As you can imagine, »
Producer Craig Perry gave an update on the planned American Pie 4 and mentioned it makes sense to round up as many of the original cast as possible. The sequel to the original trilogy that ended in 2003 with American Wedding is a franchise that spawned the resurgence of teen sex comedies and although many original cast members were absent from even the third film, Perry wants to see as many return as possible. As you can imagine, a lot of it has to do with scheduling of the actors because they're all busy. Allyson (Hannigan's) got the show and the baby, so she's got plenty on her plate, so there's a lot of people who have a lot of things to do, and I think if we get a script—which I think we will—that everybody is excited about it, and then it's going to be about the schedule, because it. »

We have two bits of casting news for you today. First, Richard Griffiths (Harry Potter) is playing King George II in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. News of Griffiths involvement comes via his Pirates co-star Geoffrey Rush who, in an interview with Empire, discussed shooting scenes with the “wonderful, congenial, and very delightful” Griffiths. As for the scenes themselves, Rush does not elaborate much past acknowledging that “as a privateer in his court, I mentor him (Griffiths).” In addition to Rush and Griffiths, Pirates also stars Johnny Depp, Ian McShane, Stephen Graham, Gemma Ward, and Penelope Cruz. While Disney’s fourth installment isn’t slated to hit theaters until May 20th, 2011, you should be able to check out its teaser trailer in front of Tron: Legacy on December 17th.

We saw the male, bird-winged version of Angel in X-Men: The Last Stand; this Angel has to refer to the comic book mutant Angel Salvadore, who has insect wings and other creepy-crawly characteristics including a highly acidic saliva.
Angel Salvadore also uses the codename Tempest, leading fans to suspect the announcement is a cover for casting Kravitz as a young version of Storm. I've been unable to get any further clues or clarification on this.

After a number of "X-Men: First Class" casting announcements over the last few days, Fox has added additional actors, including a surprising new Emma Frost.
January Jones has been signed to play Emma Frost, according to Deadline. Back in June, Alice Eve was reportedly in negotiations for the part, which ultimately did not go through. Tahnya Tozzi briefly portrayed the young Emma Frost in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."
Jones is perhaps best known for her role as Betty Francis — the former wife of Don Draper — on the AMC series "Mad Men." Jones has also appeared in "American Wedding," "Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights," "We Are Marshall" and "Love Actually."
Additionally, Deadline is reporting that director Matthew Vaughn has also added Zoe Kravitz as Angel, Bill Milner as a younger version of Magneto and Morgan Lily as "young Raven;" which as "X-Men" fans know, is the first name of Mystique, who will be »

Now, we’ve rounded them up into one convenient post for your viewing pleasure.
First up is the international poster for Little Fockers, which debuted over at Empire. The new poster indicates that the title of the film will be Meet the Parents: Little Fockers; however, I’d be willing to bet the longer title is only for our friends across the pond – similar to American Wedding (which became American Pie 3: The Wedding).
The poster is pretty underwhelming – not to mention a pretty lousy Photoshop job. Stiller doesn’t really look like he’s making eye contact with DeNiro – like he’s looking at something just over his father-in-law’s shoulder. Without the inclusion of the title characters (the little Fockers)…

Lots to tell you about here, so we'll get down to business if that's okay...
Rowan Atkinson is set to make a sequel to his hit British comedy Johnny English. The original film, released in 2003, was based around the character he used to play in a series of adverts for a credit card company. Oliver Parker, co-director of the two recent St Trinian's movies, is being lined up to direct, and Atkinson is set to return in the title role.
As many had expected, Kevin Dunn and Julia White have signed up to appear in the third Transformers movie. The pair play Ron and Judy Witwicky, the parents of Shia La Beouf's character. Megan Fox and Tyrese Gibson are also returning, »
'A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas' in turn also has a new director, Todd Strauss-Schulson.

"American Pie 4" now has a director. Actually, that's directors: Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the guys behind the stoney "Harold & Kumar" series. It was revealed in February that Universal was planning a return to the series, hoping to nab Hurwitz and Schlossberg for "a new take on the franchise."
The "American Pie" series has seen three theatrical releases and a string of direct-to-video follow-ups. Universal's plan is for Hurwitz and Schlossberg to work out a story that follows the events of "American Wedding," the third theatrical release in the series. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the duo are currently writing a script and there's strong interest on both Universal's and the original actors' parts to reunite as much of the cast as possible.
What do you get when you cross Harold & Kumar with American Pie? Sounds like we may just find out very soon. Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the duo who created the two Harold & Kumar movies (which grossed $56.4 million in the U.S. and cleaned up in DVD sales), have signed on to direct a big-screen reboot of the American Pie franchise, set to be titled American Pie 4, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Apparently Hurwitz and Schlossberg are already hard at work on the American Pie 4 script, which they are penning, but the storyline is being kept under wraps. »

Using the endlessly useful wedding set-up (see Rachel Getting Married, American Wedding, Four Weddings and a Funeral, etc.), The Romantics follows college friends, including Kate Holmes, Anna Paquin and Josh Duhamel, who reunite for two of the group's upcoming nuptials in a gray, New England town that perfectly sets the stage for angst, confessions and, apparently, some skinny-dipping. It's similar to Valentine's Day in that its cast is filled with plenty of bold-faced names, but this seems to be grounded in a more interesting and believable reality. If you don't gather that from the trailer, perhaps the earthy Feist music will give you a hint. »

When Our Family Wedding has a goat, running around a mansion, where a wedding is about to take place. Then finding some Viagra and humping one of the main characters (who happens to have an Oscar). You realize that the people behind this flick couldn't decide if this was My Big Fat Greek Wedding or American Wedding. Even worse, one realizes that they're trying to find the middle ground between those two flicks. That my friends, is a bad idea.
If there's a shining light (one that resembles a small flashlight you keep in the glove-compartment) in this roughly 100 minute piece, the cast of stand-up comedians provide a few nice one-liners that can derive a chuckle. Stress, a chuckle. Besides that element, the juxtaposition of going from depth to senseless gags enables the flick to lose its flow. The only thing keeping any sort of »
0 false 18 pt 18 pt 0 0 false false false "American Pie" was a hilarious classic 1999 high school comedy that launched the careers of Tara Reid (well, briefly), Jason Biggs (where'd he go?) Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth (again, Mia) Sean William Scott, Mena Suvari, Christina Millian, and Chris Klein.
The old gang got together again for "American Pie 2" and "American Wedding" which didn't quite capture the magic of the first one. But "Twilight: New Moon" director Chris Weitz and his "Pie" director bro Paul Weitz hope to get the original cast back together again soon.
Universal is seriously considering it but it's still in the very early formative stages," Chris tells The Dish Rag. "But my brother and I are very keen to play some kind of role and we're hoping to get as many of the kids, as we like to call them, to be in it."
Weitz describes the sequel as "a reunion, »
While it's still not a sure thing that The Twilight Saga: New Moon director Chris Weitz is out of the running for the director spot of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, it appears that Chris Weitz is getting even busier as each day passes.
You already know that Weitz is scheduled to direct The Gardener sometime this year.
According to Fused Film,
A few weeks ago we posted that Universal was keen on making an American Pie 4 nd bring back some of the origina ... Weitz did help his brother Paul Weitz with directing American Pie, the first of the three films in the series, his main position served was as a producer or executive producer for the films (note that American Pie 2 was directed by J.B. Rogers and American Wedding was directed by Jesse Dylan »
Even though American Pie has gone on to a string of shameless direct-to-dvd movies - because, let's face it, Eugene Levy still needs to make a living - the actual films in the franchise stopped in, what, 2003? American Wedding was the last movie with members of the original cast, but Seann William Scott says there might be some wiggle room for a fourth.
He tells Worst Previews, "I'll probably work on just developing it. I've been working on it for a year and a half, just developing it."
Added Stifler, "I don't know if I will ultimately [return]. But if it's awesome and it's really funny, if it's done for the right reasons to see these guys at 28-30 years old, [it] could be great." »

After several years away from the big screen, the "American Pie" franchise has found a home in the direct-to-video market. Other than the occasional appearance from Eugene Levy and a few other tangential connections, those movies have little to do with the lewd trilogy that most viewers remember. But a recently announced "American Pie" installment is looking to change all that by bringing back the original cast for another theatrical round of pastry-poking mayhem.
Seven years have passed since "American Wedding," the last big screen installment in the series, so how likely is it that Jason Biggs, Chris Klein and the others will return for a fourth outing? Honestly, who really cares — as long as Seann William Scott is back as Steve Stifler, the masses will be pleased.
Over the weekend, MTV's Josh Horowitz attended the "Cop Out" press junket and spoke with Scott about his possible involvement in a fourth "American Pie. »
