Say what you will about the flick, but I’m a huge fan of “Piranha 3D”. It was precisely what I was looking for: gratuitous nudity, loads of icky gore, and a plot so simple that anyone with a second grade education could have written it. And while the film wasn’t exactly a box office smash, it made just enough scratch for the boys and girls a Dimension Films to greenlight the inevitable sequel. Instead of simply rehashing the same scenario, the second installment is headed to a completely different aquatic locale.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that the sequel will take place in a water park, which will become infested with these flesh-eating creatures after the fish find their way into the joint through the pipelines. “Feast” director John Gulager will helm this “real 3D” project, with Marcus Dunstan, Patrick Melton, and Joel Soisson handling scripting duties. No word yet as to who, exactly, will lock horns with the titular creatures.
Expect the waters to get extremely bloody on November 23rd, 2011.
