Shannon Elizabeth is returning for "American Reunion."

Deadline confirms this glorious Memorial Day weekend news, which should make your BBQ taste extra smoky and your ice cream extra sweet. The carefully devised plot gets everyone together for their 10-year high school reunion as they spend a weekend catching up with each other. Will it be the "The Big Chill" for our generation?

"American Reunion" will open in theaters on April 6, 2012.
