Natasha Lyonne can thank her lucky stars another American Pie flick is coming along at just the right time.
The trouble-prone actress has signed on to reprise her role as foul-mouthed, wisecracking Jessica for American Reunion, the seventh installment of the teen gross-out comedy franchise.
Along with the 32-year-old Lyonne, other original castmembers from the 1999 yuckfest coming back for more include: Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Mena Suvari, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Seann William Scott, Jennifer Coolidge and Eugene Levy.

Besides appearing in the first two American Pie movies, Lyonne's other credits include Woody Allen's 1997 musical, Everyone Says I Love You, 1998's The Slums of Beverly Hills, 2001's Kate and Leopold and Scary Movie and 2004's Blade: Trinity.
But the work soon dried up following reports of wild, drug-fueled behavior, which landed her in rehab, and several run-ins with the law in the early 2000s, including a drunken driving arrest and charges for allegedly threatening to sexually molest a neighbor's dog.
American Reunion, which picks up with the Pie gang 10 years after their high school graduation, is now in production. It's set to hit theaters in April 2012.
