Piranha Gets the 3-D Treatment


Recommended Posts

Dimension Films has just announced that it will remake the classic horror film "Piranha" into a 3-D feature. According to Bloody-Disgusting, Alex Aja has signed on to direct the project.


Piranha is the story of a pack of razor-toothed fish terrorzing a small local lake. Residents struggle to deal with the situation and the horrible outcome it produces.


Dimension Films has scheduled the release of "Piranha" in 3-D for July 24th, 2009.


"Piranha" was a 1978 horror film, directed by Joe Dante.



Per "Wikipedia":


"Piranha" is a 1978 comedy horror film about a swarm of killer piranha. It was directed by Joe Dante and starred Bradford Dillman, Heather Menzies, Kevin McCarthy, Keenan Wynn and Dick Miller. Produced by Roger Corman, "Piranha" is a parody of the 1975 film "Jaws", which had been a major success for distributor Universal Studios and director Steven Spielberg, and inspired a series of similarly-themed B movies such as "Grizzly", Tintorera, "Tentacles", "Orca", "Up from the Depths" and "Great White". Piranha's similarity to "Jaws" was as such that Universal attempted to halt the film's distribution. However, Spielberg saw the film in advance and liked it. "Piranha" was followed by a sequel, "Piranha II: The Spawning", in 1981, and two remakes, one in 1995, and another which is forthcoming. The film was shot at Aquarena Springs
