The original “House Party” was classic. “House Party” 2, 3, and 4? Not so much. You know how you can never top the experience of that one epic party you attended in high school or college? The same is true when creating party movies. After the first, it’s never the same, Unfortunately, some people don’t see it that way and for whatever reason they are still trying to make this film happen — 11 years after the last one.

Though Shadow and Act says this is a direct-to-video situation, the sequel still begs one enormous question: why. Reportedly, Doug McHenry, who produced the second “House Party” and executive produced the third, will take the reigns on this one along with veteran director Darin Scott (“The Brothers,” “Menace to Society”) and writer Don D. Scott (“Barbershop 1 & 2″) which is at least a little promising. Still, the originators of “House Party,” the Hudlin Brothers, are reported to not be involved with this project at all.

The fifth flick will be titled “House Party: Tonight’s The Night,” and shooting is slated to begin September 24. Oddly, no details on the cast have been revealed, but Full Force was said to be in talks earlier this year. As for Kid N’ Play, I wouldn’t be surprised if they made some sort of cameo though they’re reportedly not involved with the project either. When the fourth “House Party” came out, R&B group Immature took the lead roles but we don’t have boy bands like that today so unless Mindless Behavior isn’t doing anything, casting should be quite interesting — unlike the fifth installment of the film, I suspect.

Thoughts on this?
