Another beauty needs to make sure they don’t dip their cute little toes in the water. Dimension Films announced today that “Gossip Girl’s” Jessica Szohr is joining the cast of the horror remake “Piranha 3-D.”
Based on the original 1978 film, this version sticks to the story of a lakeside town being scared (and chopped) to bits by those prehistoric man-eating, razor-toothed fishes. Szohr will play Kelly, a young resident who gets caught up in the excitement of all the vacationing college kids who have hit the town for spring break (looks like it’s going to be one bloody lake).
Previously announced cast members include Elisabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, Adam Scott and Dina Meyer.
The 24-year-old actress, who plays Vanessa on “Gossip GIrl,” recently appeared in the underrated comedy “Fired Up.”
Directed by “The Hills Have Eyes'” Alexandre Aja, “Piranha 3-D” begins filming later this month in anticipation of a March 19, 2010 release.
