Director Alexandre Aja has been working on Piranha 3D, an remake of the 1978 film Piranha. The remake is based on a script co-written by Alexandre Aja (who once brought us Mirrors) and Josh Stolberg (Sorority Row) . The film is starring Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Jessica Szohr, Jerry O’Connell, Cody Longo, and Ricardo Chavira. It will be released on April 16, 2010.
The movie trailer of Piranha 3D has leaked online in bootleg version:
“The fictional Lake Victoria is the caldera of a prehistoric volcano. Each 4th of July weekend, the population of Lake Victoria, Arizona swells from 5,000 to 50,000 as young people flood the town to celebrate. When tremors tear open a crack in the lake floor, millions of prehistoric piranha are released. The ravenous fish unleash havoc on the unsuspecting party-goers.”
Those Piranha are damn hungry! I wonder how they would have managed to survive all those millions years trapped below the floor of the lake… Anyway, the movie Piranha 3D is gonna be a bloody feast, and yes it’s in 3D, so it’s really gonna be bloody awesome!
