When it was announced that Dimension’s worldwide smash cult quasi-hit Piranha 3D would have a sequel, the obvious joke going around was that it should be called “Piranha 3DD”. You know, because of all the titteez. The Piranha franchise being dedicated to nothing so much as running with an obvious joke (especially if it involves titteez), Dimension has announced that the official title will actually be Piranha 3DD (Piranha 3 double D). I’ll be expecting my royalty check any day now, you guys. Though I will also accept payment in the form of, you guessed it, titteez.
From the latest press release (via distributor The Weinstein Company).
Principal photography is now underway in Wilmington, NC on PIRANHA 3DD, being directed by John Gulager (FEAST).
There’s something in the water . . . again.
You’d think they would’ve learned not to go in the water by now, but… they haven’t.
And this time no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of the best summer attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Featuring a talented ensemble cast including Danielle Panabaker (THE CRAZIES), Matt Bush (ADVENTURELAND), Chris Zylka (THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN), David Koechner (ANCHORMAN), Meagan Tandy (UNSTOPPABLE), Paul James Jordan, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Hector Jimenez, Adrian Martinez, Clu Gulager and more cast to be announced soon.
I enjoy that they take great pains to trumpet the involvement of Hollywood A-lister Jean-Luc Bilodeau but say nothing of the fact that the script was written by the guys behind Saw V, VI, and VII. Probably a wise decision. Take this as a lesson, guy who insists on writing “From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan” on stuff.
