3D Piranha will be Hassling the Hoff

May. 12, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Did I miss something, or was PIRANHA 3D a hit?

Looking up the numbers, I see that it exactly made up its production costs with its domestic gross of $25M, fortunately there's the international market who want to look at hot American (or in Kelly Brook's case, British) girls in bikinis which netted another $60M.

The cast for the sequel, PIRANHA 3DD (what's that other D for again?) has grown increasingly eccentric with the addition of Gary Busey and David Koechner, joining the originals of Christopher Llyod and Ving Rhames, but now a new name further expands on the joke that this movie is. And I don't necessarily mean that as an insult.

Yes, David Hasselhoff has joined up and will be murdering/being murdered by CGI piranha with the best of them. His vast lifeguard experience will surely help him out, and I wouldn't be half surprised if he appear in character as former Baywatch stud, Mitch Buchannon. Cause why the hell not?

I should probably catch the original at some point to see if it's good camp or bad camp. What did you think of it?

Extra Tidbit: With her not returning, I take it Kelly Brook didn't survive? Sadness. At least we have Katrina Bowden now.

Hasselhoff needs to have a talking boat that he can use to wage war on the piranha.

With it being in a waterpark I can totally see him referencing his Baywatch role, as Dreyfuss did in Piranha 3D.

The first was complete B movie fun, it was absurd, intentionally cheesy and didn't take itself seriously. This will hopefully be as entertaining.

neutral,simply because this washed up drunken loser seems like stunt casting to me. the original,if you went into it with an open mind,rocked !! it was sheer campy fun that delivered on the cheesiness and the breastesses, a fun summer 3d flick where you leave your mind at the door and enjoy the experience.

This smacks of "lets go all out with the stars" this time,and will either totally up the ante on cheesy film,or grind it down into lametown.

keeping my fingers crossed.

Haha, sweet!

I hope they make a few more of these. Are they bad ripoff movies? Sure, but still a decent way to kill 90 minutes. I'm a sucker for this stuff and grew up thinking guys like Burt Reynolds, William Shatner, and David Hasselhoff were cool...wait a minute! I still do!

Bahahaha. Hasselhoff is terrible, but this seems like the perfect venue for him. I don't know if I'll lineup for this film opening night, as it seems like kind of a dumb and useless sequel, but I am definitely curious to know what they have in store. I will anticipate a trailer for this with much anticipation.

Hoff is a major....

Tool! He ruins any set he steps on to. If you like this dude outside of the drunken hamburger incident then you have no right to complain about any casting of any actor/actress in any movie ever again

I hope we get flying piranhas like in the original sequel, Piranha: The Spawning. The original sequel was better (well funnier) than the original first one (wow it's getting confusing with all those remakes and sequels).
Anyway, all that to say, Piranha 3D was a FUN time at the movies and so in a way it was one of the best movies last year, in a way. And I only hope Piranha 3DD (gotta love the two Ds) is has much fun. And please, again, FLYING piranhas!!!!!

Hoff is a fuckin spectacular addition to this movie. The first one was hillariosly campy/awesome. My ass will be in the seat for a second go around. Bring on more 3D boobie sequences. They please me greatly.

The first one was a good way to get baked and go see a movie in 3D. Naked chicks in 3D was pretty much a sell to any stoner out there.

Christopher Llyod? Oh no. I appreciate him too much to be in a movie like this.

"What's the extra D for?"

Seriously?

I genuinely can't tell if that's sarcasm or not.

The movie isn't bad, but with all the positive buzz it got, I was disappointed with the end product. I'll still definitely see the sequel and hope I enjoy it more.

The Hoff had better not die in this.

Seriously, he needs to save the day like at the end of The Spongebob Squarepants movie. I would watch that movie a hundred times.
