The last time the ‘American Pie’ crew got together was in 2012 for American Reunion. Everyone assumed that would be the final film in the franchise. It felt like a nice ending, a hope that they might all grow up and live somewhat normal lives.
But according to Tara Reid, the crew might come back one more time for some shenanigans.
The 42-year-old actress told CinePOP recently that she talked to directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and they told her a fifth movie is “definitely happening.”
“I met the directors recently at the Emmy party and I said, ‘Let’s do the fifth movie, the franchise needs another movie,’ They replied, ‘It will happen! We’re going to make another!'”
Obviously the franchise does not need another movie. What she really means is that SHE needs more money. The ‘American Pie’ franchise has paid her bills for the last decade.
She claims filming on this 5th movie could start this year, but that’s probably wishful thinking. For what it’s worth, Sean William Scott (Stifler) said last year that a fifth film probably wouldn’t happen because American Reunion did not perform well at the box office.
We’ll see what happens, but for right now, I wouldn’t believe Reid. If another co-star comes out and says it’s happening, then we will believe it.[mashshare]
