Tara Reid’s ‘American Reunion’ already awkward? She will be the lowest-paid actress among all the originals in the new “American Pie” movie. Most all of the original cast is due to return. Most of the cast will receive anywhere between $500,000 and $750,000 to return to the franchise.
Reid is set to get paid $250,000 to reprise her role as ‘Vicky’ in, Jason Biggs and Sean William Scott will be paid the most, each receiving $5 million each followed by current “How I Mest Your Mother” star, Alyson Hannigan set to receive $3 million along with Eugene Levy.
Directed by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, “American Reunion” centers on the gang who return to East Great Falls for their high school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they’ll discover what has changed, who hasn’t, and that time and distance can’t break the bonds of friendship. The comedy film is scheduled to arrive in U.S. theaters on April 6, 2012.
This will be the eighth movie in the American Pie franchise and the first to not be released straight to DVD since “American Wedding”, the third film. The original series, produced on a total budget of $95 million, grossed $754 million worldwide.
The series has developed a cult following. Critics have given the original trilogy mixed reviews, and overlooked the spin-off series. Only actor Eugene Levy has appeared in every American Pie film.
