Full Cast for Alexandre Aja's Piranha 3-D Lined Up
After a few delays, it looks like Alexandre Aja's Piranha 3-D is finally ready to start shooting. Dimension Films starts production in Arizona next month. According to Bloody Disgusting tonight, a handful of fairly small time actors have joined the project. Dina Meyer (Starship Troopers, Saw I - IV) will play Paula, Brooklynn Proulx (Fireflies in the Garden) will play Laura, Quinn Lord (Trick 'r Treat) will play Zane, and Riley Steele will play Crystal. We also confirmed a few weeks ago that Elisabeth Shue is starring. They're joined by leads Adam Scott and Ving Rhames. Richard Dreyfuss will have a cameo as well.
They're back! Every year the population of Lake Havasu explodes for a single, wild weekend - the 4th of July, a riot of sun, drunken fun and sex-crazed mayhem. But this year, there's something more to worry about than hangovers. Havasu sits in the crater formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption, and when earth tremors tear open a crack in the lake floor, all hell breaks through. Piranhas - a million ravenous, razor-toothed monsters, unchanged since the dawn of time. Unstoppable killing machines acting blindly under one primeval impulse: to hunt down anything that moves and strip it to the raw, bleeding bone.
Piranha 3-D will be shooting in 3-D and aiming for an early March 19th, 2010 release date. Alexandre Aja previously directed High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes and Mirrors. The screenplay was co-written by Aja, Josh Stolberg, Pete Goldfinger, and Grégory Levasseur. Stay tuned for updates on Piranha 3-D soon.
