Unlike us poor schmucks in the UK who have had any sort of theatrical treatment ripped away from our hands regarding Piranha 3DD. You folks in the U.S. can breath a sigh of relief, as Piranha 3DD will hit theatres.
Recently, Patrick Melton, the co-writer of Piranha 3DD caught up with The Daily Dead and revealed why the film has taken so long to get out and what release treatment it will earn.
“Nevertheless, we plowed on and finished shooting in late May. Over the summer, Gulager edited and picked up a few shots around Los Angeles. This is typical of every movie made. Scenes, jokes, and kills were simply enhanced to make the movie more of an event. About a month ago, it was tested and scored very well. So well the studio gave us more money to enhance the FX. Soon, it’ll be done and ready for a theatrical release. Because of the “Spring Break vibe” in the film, spring was the obvious time to open it. And because Dimension Films financed the movie and owns the movie, they call the shots on when it’s released worldwide.”
Piranha 3DD is directed by John Gulager (Feast) and stars Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer, David Hasselhoff, Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, David Koechner, Meagan Tandy, Paul James Jordan, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Hector Jimenez, Adrian Martinez, and Clu Gulager.
Synopsis: “Having awoken from their spring break extravaganza at Lake Victoria, the swarm heads upstream where they look to make a meal out of Big Wet, a local water park where when it comes to fun, nobody does it wetter! Thought they came to get wet, get loaded and get some, the staff and patrons get more than they bargained for when they must face the fiercest, most bloodthirsty piranhas yet. Lead by the strong-willed, studious Maddy and her friends, Barry and Kyle, the trio must dive in and take on these man-eating creatures using every ounce of their being…but can they be stopped?”
