It’s a bizarre way for a movie studio to show its appreciation for a mega-successful trilogy, but here we go again… Remember that direct-to-video "Band Camp" sequel? Did you like it? Well, either way, get ready for "American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile."
Filming has begun on "American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile," an all-new, uproarious chapter in the hugely successful "American Pie" comedy franchise about outrageous antics and heartwarming fun. A DVD Original™ from Rogue Pictures and Universal Studios Home Entertainment (USHE), the film commenced principal photography on June 5, 2006 in Toronto, Canada. Building upon Rogue Pictures’ and USHE’s tremendous success with the DVD Original™ "American Pie Presents: Band Camp" – which sold over two million DVD and VHS units – this fifth installment of the Pie franchise is the studio’s latest effort to create cutting-edge content for DVD audiences that creates further velocity for properties with an unmistakable resonance among film fans.
Starring Christopher McDonald ("Happy Gilmore"), John White ("How To Deal"), Ross Thomas ("The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold"), Jake Siegel (his feature film debut), Steve Talley ("Peaceful Warrior") and Jessy Schram ("Veronica Mars"), "American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile" is directed by Joe Nussbaum ("Sleepover"), written by Erik Lindsay and produced by W. Keith Border and Joel Soisson of Neo Art & Logic, Inc. ("The Prophecy," "Dracula 2000" and "Trekkies" franchises, and soon-to-be-released "Pulse"). The film is based on characters created by Adam Herz and executive produced by Craig Perry and Warren Zide, who produced "American Pie 1" and "2," as well as "American Wedding."
The "American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile" creative team also includes director of photography Eric Haase ("Southern Belles"), production designer Gordon Barnes ("Gilmore Girls") editor Danny Saphire ("American Pie Presents: Band Camp"), and costume designer Mary Partridge ("Inside The Osmonds"). The film was cast by Monika Mikkelsen and Stephanie Gorin.
In this latest story from one of the most successful and outrageous comedy franchises ever, Erik Stifler has a lot to live up to as he can’t be the first Stifler to graduate high school… a virgin! The newest Stifler escapade delivers outrageous humor, heartwarming fun and laugh-out-loud antics.
