U, Steinberg bake another ‘Pie’

Scribe paid low- against mid-six figures to pen sequel

Universal Pictures has begun to piece back together that befouled pie from “American Pie”: The studio has tapped scribe David H. Steinberg to pen the sequel to the $100 million-grossing pic.

Steinberg will be paid low- against mid-six figures to develop a script.

No director, cast or producer is attached to what is being referred to as “American Pie II.” “No other deals are in place at this point,” studio spokesman Jeff Sakson said.

Universal exec VP Allison Breckner will oversee the project’s development at the studio.

The script for the original “Pie” was written by Adam Herz, who agreed four months ago to write and direct an untitled comedy for Universal with a $1 million guarantee for the screenplay.

Steinberg recently sold his first script, “Slackers,” to Destination Films for a high six figures. With producers Neil Moritz and Erik Feig (“I Know What You Did Last Summer”) attached, the project is on Destination’s fast-track.

Steinberg is a graduate of Yale, Duke University Law School and USC’s Peter Stark Program.

Jeff Goore negotiated Universal’s end of the pact; Steinberg is repped by Jewerl Ross at APA, and attorney Bob Myman at Myman, Abell, Finerman and Greenspan.

He is managed by Guyman Casady of Industry Entertainment.
