The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Universal Pictures is planning to bring back American Pie.
Writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle) will script this new version of the franchise. The present title is simply American Pie 4.
American Pie came out in 1999 and made more than $200 million worldwide. Sequels American Pie 2 and American Wedding followed.
After this, a bunch of direct-to-DVD titles were released under the "American Pie Presents" banner.

Although no actor's deals are in place, it is believed that some of the original cast is interested in returning.
Seann William Scott, Jason Biggs, Shannon Elizabeth and Alyson Hannigan were a few of the young comedic actors who got their break in the first film. It isn't yet known how these older characters would fit into the somewhat youthful world of the new one.
Universal is hoping that people's love for the American Pie franchise will spark a lot of interest in a new theatrical film.
