Coming as a surprise to absolutely no one, People magazine spoke to Chris Klein and confirmed that the actor will return to the franchise that gave him a (middling) career in Universal Pictures American Reunion. The fourth film in the series will surely contain boatloads of the crude sex comedy that made all of the original films $100 million hits and will hopefully bring its characters some closure, as I’m sure Sean William Scott is tired of being referred to exclusively as Stifler.
Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle) will write and direct the film, which should begin shooting in late May for a January 7th, 2012 release (that date inspired a whole lot of confidence). Most of the core cast, including Alyson Hannigan, Jason Biggs, Tara Reid and Scott will return. Nostalgia is the only thing this film has going for it, so Universal better pray that my high school classmates plan a get-together to go see it because I don’t know who else will.
