We have some quick casting stories for you this afternoon. First up, The Weinstein Company has sent out a press release announcing that Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, and Paul Scheer will return for Piranha 3DD. Their characters survived the first film, and like all good horror flick survivors, I’m sure they’ll offer some kind of cursory explanation of what’s happening, that explanation will be ignored until it’s too late, and then at least two out of the three survivors will be destroyed. My money is on Rhames making it out alive. The trio joins previously announced cast members Katrina Bowden, Gary Busey, Danielle Panabaker, David Koechner, Matt Bush, and Chris Zylka. Piranha 3DD opens in 3D on November 23rd.
In other casting news, Variety reports that Michael Kelly (The Adjustment Bureau) has joined Dane DeHaan Michael B. Jordan, Alex Russell, and Ashley Hinshaw in Chronicle. Kelly will play the father of one of three teenagers who get superpowers when they come into contact with a mysterious substance. Josh Trank will make his feature directing debut from a script by Max Landis. Chronicle is set for release on February 3, 2012.
