‘American Reunion’ could get another sequel slice of pie
‘American Pie’ could be getting another sequel in wake of worldwide box office success.
I recently happened to watch ‘American Reunion’ and found myself enjoying it, not because it was out and out hilarious (it was still funny) but more due to the immense nostalgia factor of seeing every single actor return to a franchise that I grew up with. The movie may not have set the US box-office ablaze and kind of disappointed in that country, but it made a total of $233 million worldwide so far thanks to a very hefty international gross which means audiences are very much interested in the franchise even now. And looks like that could be reason Universal may be planning another sequel.
Universal is reportedly in the early stages of thinking about a sequel to ‘American Reunion’, based on its reception by the fans who consider it the best film in the series since the original. The gross is pretty good when you consider how many years it has passed, and the only hurdle will be to bring the entire cast back together. But considering not one of them have been very popular, I don’t think that will be too big of an issue if the money is right. But what could the film be about? I think the reunion angle was a great way to conclude the series, but I guess further misadventures can be mined from the characters.
What do you think?
