It’s hard to believe but there are some franchises that seem to take on a life of their own long after the original cast & crew has moved on to greener pastures. One of those franchises is American Pie, with an insane 7 films under its belt.
Who says you can’t go back to the drawing board for number 8? Certainly not the original cast, as they’re ALL returning for the 10-year reunion of when they started back with the first American Pie.
Hard to believe the only person who’s made it through all 7 films is Eugene Levy (or maybe it’s not that hard to believe) but he’s back and still playing the poor man’s Jerry Lewis. Here’s the film’s synopsis.
In the comedy “American Reunion,” all the “American Pie” characters we met a little more than a decade ago are returning to East Great Falls for their high-school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they will discover what has changed, who hasn’t and that time and distance can’t break the bonds of friendship.
It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim and Michelle married while Kevin and Vicky said goodbye. Oz and Heather grew apart, but Finch still longs for Stifler’s mom. Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about—and get inspired by—the hormonal teens who launched a comedy legend.
Check out the first “trailer” for the film after the jump, which has no official footage, but rather a photo booth-style slideshow giving us a taste of whats in store when American Reunion hits theaters on April 6th.
