Van Wilder: Freshman Year

Van Wilder: Freshman Year will be released on DVD July 14, 2009 from Tapestry Films and Paramount Home Entertainment.  This is the third installment in the popular college comedy franchise from the producers of Wedding Crashers and Van Wilder 1 and 2.


In Van Wilder: Freshman Year, a young Van follows in his wealthy father’s footsteps by enrolling at prestigious Coolidge College.  Much to the easygoing slacker’s dismay, however, Coolidge is hardly the party school he envisioned.  Instead, it’s a strict institution led by an uptight dean—and to make matters worse, all the girls have taken a vow of chastity!  Determined to rectify this intolerable situation, the civic-minded Van launches a personal crusade to free his school from the shackles of sexual oppression and party dysfunction.  No cheerleader will be left untouched and no keg will be left untapped in this hilarious prequel. 


The story reveals for the first time his rise to become the man—and the seven-year college senior.   Van Wilder: Freshman Year features a young cast including Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls) as “Van the Man” and Kristin Cavallari (Laguna Beach), as well as Steve Talley (American Pie Presents Beta House), Kurt Fuller (Wayne’s World) and Linden Ashby (Resident Evil: Extinction) as Van’s partners in mayhem.


Van Wilder: Freshman Year is produced by Robert Levy, Peter Abrams, and
Andrew Panay (Wedding Crashers, National Lampoon’s Van Wilder), directed by Harv Glazer (Kickin’ it Old School), written by Todd McCullough, and executive produced by Pure Pictures’ Darin Spillman and Sam Bernard.
