Update! : 18/2/10
It’s been a long time coming, but our scoop about Universal’s determination to get the “American Pie” franchise back to theaters – and with the original cast – has been confirmed. The Los Angeles Times reported today that “Harold & Kumar” scribes Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have been hired to write “American Pie 4″, a sequel that (like the upcoming “Scream 4″) will bring back the stars of the original trilogy.

Jason Biggs would likely do it, Alyson Hannigan too, and Eddie Kaye Thomas and Thomas Ian Nicholas won’t be knocking back the paycheck, but what about now ‘big timer’ Seann William Scott?

You may recall Scott, who played the rancid party-boy ‘Stifler’ in the three “American Pie” flicks, telling Moviehole that he’s not at all interested in playing the character again.

“I knew when I did [American Pie 3], I was like, ”I just want to complete this character”. It was like, what else can I do that’s disgusting? What’s the point of doing a movie if you can’t do anything else to top the last one? …. there’s nothing else to do.”

Here’s the original story…

Here’s something interesting.

Universal has decided to press pause on those direct-to-video “American Pie” spin-off films in favour of making a third sequel to the original film – one that might possibly pick up on the whereabouts of now-married Jim and Michelle (Jason Biggs and Alyson Hannigan). Like the other three, it’ll be released theatrically.

The success of the direct-to-video spin-off films (“American Pie : Band Camp”, “American Pie : Naked Mile” and “American Pie : Beta House” – all featuring Eugene Levy) has Uni thinking it might be time to return the series to its roots – alas, it’s back to Jim, Michelle, Finch, Stifler (though personally I doubt Seann William Scott will return) and whoever else can be roped back into the fruity follow-up.

One can only assume that this fourth direct sequel would centre on Jim and Michelle having kids – with token words of advice from the weird and wild father (Eugene Levy), of course – or the duo going through some kind of hiccup in their marriage? Then again, maybe they’ll drop those characters and fix on one of the supporting characters, say Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) or even, Oz (Chris Klein), who didn’t return for the last sequel?

Nobody’s been roped into doing the film yet – but I can’t imagine Jason Biggs would knock it back – but “American Pie 4″ is said to be inching forward so expect to hear something officialish soon.

The first “American Pie”, released in 1999, made nearly over $235 million dollars in its run.

The quality of the spin offs has been much debated, but they’d be fun to watch on a long flight to Cancun or Punta Cana Dominican Republic. A reboot of the franchise would be interesting and may draw more interest in the direct-to-dvd installments.
