From Gossip Girl to fish bait? Sure, why not. Word from E! Online is that TV actress Jessica Szohr has joined the cast of Alexandre Aja’s “Piranha 3D”, a movie title that I, for some reason, continually misspells the first time around. As in, pretty much every single time. Sigh.
Anyways, Jessica Szohr will be joining a cast that include Elisabeth Shue as the local sheriff, Ving Rhames as one of her deputies and Adam Scott as a Navy diver sent in to help rescue the town as killer piranhas descent upon it, just as a bunch of horny college kids (including Szohr’s character) show up for spring break. Shoulda stayed and studied in the campus library like I did when I was at college. Hah! Whose got the last laugh now?
Anyhoo. So what’s “Piranha 3D”, besides being 3D, all about? We got this:
“What do they really eat?”
“You mean besides flesh and blood?”
Jaws… lots and lots of jaws. From acclaimed director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA 3D, in the latest eye-popping 3D technology. A new type of terror is about to be cut loose on beautiful Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents. But our heroine (Elisabeth Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself.
Get them baits ready March 19, 2010.
