Piranha, Getting Ready To Reel In The Big One!
I am bringing the campy #horror hit #Piranha back to the big screen with a new installment of the popular movie series that will both scare and entertain you!
I am thrilled to help the terrifying, yet witty horror series live on and I am currently casting for the film, which once again will center on unknowing swimmers, threatened by ravenous flesh-eating fish. Sounds scary, doesn't it???
The last installment of the #movie series swam into theaters in 2012 with Piranha 3DD and I intend to blow that one out of the water! (BTW, all puns were intentional) The film originally dates back to 1978, and first came out as one of many parodies of the uber popular film #Jaws.
Truncated Film Chronology: -In the 1978 film, flesh-eating piranha’s are accidentally released into the rivers at a summer resort, making the guests the next meal and a franchise was born.
-After the first release, sequels followed including #Piranha II: The Spawning, in 1981. Piranhas followed in 1995, and was a remake of the 1978 hit.
-In 2010, another version, this time in 3D, hit the screens and starred names such as Richard Dreyfuss, Elisabeth Shue and Christopher Lloyd.
It's been about 9 years since the last Piranha and I am sure audiences are ready for the next chapter, which will keep the #comedy-horror combination in tact and will mark the return of the flesh-eating fish.
I am bringing my all to this film and with more than 35 years of experience in Hollywood as a producer, I am going to reel in a big one here.... Sorry could not resist!
Watch out beach goers, Piranha is coming back to the big screen!
