'Reunion' preems at Universal

Though the Monday preem of Universal’s “American Reunion” served as an actual reunion for most of the cast, there were a couple of new members to the team. Co-directors and writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg introduced the pic at the Chinese and explained how thrilling it was to direct a film in a franchise they grew up watching.

Later, at the Roosevelt Hotel, they were joined by Jason Biggs, Chris Klein and Seann William Scott. “We always talked about getting everyone back and not just the main cast,” Schlossberg said. “We wanted people like Chris Owen and Shannon Elizabeth back so that it felt like a real reunion.”

Hurwitz reminisced about the U family, saying, “When the first film came out, Adam Fogelson was the head of marketing and it’s nice to see everything come full circle with him now being the head of the studio.”
