LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Universal Pictures is helping itself to another serving of "American Pie."
The studio has completed deals with Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott and Eugene Levy to reunite for what is being called "American Reunion."
The studio is currently working to bring in many of the other members of the original cast and is in negotiations with Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari and Jennifer Coolidge to reprise their roles.
The first two films in the comedy franchise grossed a combined $523.2 million at the worldwide box office. "American Wedding," the third, grossed $231.4 million.
Universal also made several direct-to-DVD releases, which set sales records at the height of the DVD market.
Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, who wrote and directed "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay" have written the script and will direct the film.
