American Pie star could star in new Woody Allen film

American Pie star Jason Biggs is in talks to take over Robert Downey Jr's role in Woody Allen's latest project.

It is thought that film company Fox couldn't afford Downey's fees for the low-budget movie, which has yet to be given a title.

The film also stars Chloe Sevigny, Radha Mitchell and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and begins filming this autumn.

Mitchell took over from Winona Ryder who was originally tipped to star alongside Downey, according to Empire Online.
