Seann William Scott leaves treatment facility
Seann William Scott, who played Steven Stifler in the "American Pie" movies, has left the Malibu treatment facility where he was seeking help for "health and personal issues."
The actor's spokesperson told Us Weekly that Scott has "completed a successful treatment program."
The spokesperson added that the actor is "looking forward to beginning production next month on 'American Reunion' for Universal Pictures."
It was announced in March that Universal was working on a fourth installment of the "American Pie" franchise. Several of the actors involved in the original "American Pie" movies have signed on to reprise their roles in the popular films, including Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Eugene Levy and Jason Biggs.
The original film was released in 1999 and also starred Tara Reid, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Shannon Elizabeth, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Natasha Lyonne, Mena Suvari, Chris Owen and Jennifer Coolidge. These actors have not confirmed their involvement in the new movie.
The script has already been written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg ("Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay"), who will also direct the film.
Two big-screen sequels, "American Pie 2" and "American Wedding" were released, as were several DVD spinoff films. This will be the franchise's first film to be released in theaters since 2003.
Scott was in the 2010 film "Cop Out" with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. He also provided his voice to Crash in the "Ice Age" franchise and recently wrapped up filming "Goon" with Jay Baruchel and Liev Schreiber.
