Chris Weitz Talks Fourth "American Pie"

By our guest blogger, Matt Jussim

Out doing press for the "New Moon" DVD/Blu-ray release later this month, director Chris Weitz tells Movieweb that the upcoming fourth "American Pie" feature will go by the title "American Reunion."

According to Movieweb: Weitz, who has served as a producer and creative voice on the previous three installments, said he wants to get the entire original cast back together, including John Cho, as well as maybe have the epic "Pie" gag be in 3D.

Said Weitz: "I know that Universal wants to do it. We want to be involved in it. Because of the affection we hold for the story and the characters. We want to get as many former cast members back as possible."

Weitz specifically said he wanted Cho: "It would be great if we could get him back."

Weitz also joked that the film could go the 3D route, but for the most part, it "would be about the nostalgia element. For the time that it came out, for how people felt when they first saw it and now to experience it again with all the pathos and humor that implies."

I always have been a huge fan of the “American Pie” films (although I’ve never seen any of the DVD spinoffs), so I really hope this film happens. With so many remakes and reboots going on these days, why not another “Pie” film? The whole crew hasn’t been together since “American Pie 2,” and I know it would be good to get them back on screen together. Maybe even the Sherminator as well.

"American Reunion" is aiming for a 2011 release date.
