“American Reunion” secures a 2012 release date

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Just about every “American Pie” cast member has agreed or is in negotiations to appear in the upcoming “American Reunion,” and now we know when they’ll reunite on screen.

The fourth installment in the surprisingly dependable comedy franchise will arrive in theaters on April 6, 2012, Universal Pictures announced.

No other film has claimed that weekend yet. The strategic date also gives “Reunion” a few weekends to compete before “The Avengers” starts snatching up tickets on May 4.

The last “American” film, 2003’s “American Wedding,” earned $231.4M worldwide, so a sequel probably was inevitable.

Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Chris Klein and Eugene Levy all have been circling the project. While side players Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid and Mena Suvari are expected to return.
