Update! : Tara Reid will no longer be doing the film. ”Her deal couldn’t be completed in time” an official source says. ”Reid’s deal was expected to close on Friday, but it couldn’t be done”. Pity too, as they’d just rewritten one of the characters in the script to be Vicki Lathum.
Tara Reid’s going back to where it all started for her… East Great Falls High.
The party queen is reprising her role of Vicki Lathum, from the first two films, for “American Pie : Book of Love”, the latest in the sex and pastries series.
Though she’d had small roles in the likes of “Urban Legend” (1998) and “Cruel Intentions” (1999), it was the role of the curious, nervous Vicki in Paul Weitz’s $200 million dollar hit that really put Reid on the map. She reprised the role, albeit briefly, for the 2001 sequel.
“American Pie : Book of Love”, directed by John Putch (TVs “Scrubs”) and penned by David H.Steinberg (“American Pie 2″), tells of a group of kids that discover the sex-bible that so prominently featured in the original film (and, in fact, was used by Kevin, played by Thomas Ian Nicholas, on Vicki, his then-girlfriend). It may or may not end up with someone losing their cherry.
Reid joins Bug Hall (“Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves”), Kevin M.Horton (“Big Game”), and another original “Pie” star, Eugene Levy, for the new pic. Wayne Newton and Sherman ‘The Jefferson’s’ Helmsley also appear.
