Variety has announced that Katrina Bowden – the 30 Rock star next up in Piranha 3DD – has joined Universal’s latest slice of Pie, American Reunion.

The film, likely a reaction to Fast Five’s recent box office success, will reunite Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Chris Klein (to whom Bowden will play girlfriend), Eugene Levy, Tara Reid, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Mena Suvari and Jennifer Coolidge – many of whom haven’t worked together since the first sequel, 2001’s American Pie 2.

The film, which has just seen its first cast read through, will be the eighth film in the franchise, and the fourth to follow the trials and tribulations of original hero Jim Levenstein (Biggs).

With an East Great Falls high-school reunion acting as catalyst for another round of misadventures, Biggs recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly that audiences can expect “calculated” raunch as directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg strive for some more age appropriate humour when the film reaches theatres next year.
