Dimension Films landed a surprise hit (if opening 6th at the box office qualifies as a hit) with Piranha 3D and now, as we reported in August, they’re going in for a sequel. The new film will be titled Piranha 3DD as a nod to the series’ love of large breasts. The guys being brought on to create this cinematic masterpiece are the folks behind the 2005 horror film, Feast: director John Gulager and screenwriters Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (who also wrote the last four Saw movies). Deadline reports that Dimension is aiming to get Piranha 3DD into theaters by August 2011. Personally, I’m not shocked that they’re trying to turn it around that fast. I’m shocked that they’re writing a script.
No word if they’ll shoot in 3D or post-convert it like they did with Piranha 3D. Either way, I hope we get another fun argument between James Cameron and producer Mark Canton.
