'Fresh Take'
Coming from
Actor and
Sujata Day
Universal Pictures is ready to reheat “American Pie” with a new take on the comedy film franchise, based on an original pitch that is said to offer a "fresh take" on the 23-year-old sex comedy film series. Sujata Day, known for her roles in HBO’s series "Insecure" and the web series "The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl," is behind this new "American Pie" pitch.
There are no specific details yet for what the plot or angle of the pitch is, but Day is known for her work both in front of and behind the camera, having made her feature-length directorial debut in 2020 with the dramedy "Definition Please." 
Based on Day's credentials, it seems feasible she might be looking to inject a little more diversity into the "American Pie" franchise than we've seen before. Maybe Day can help restore "American Pie" to relevance with her take on it.
