If you want more boobies and fish, a sequel for Piranha 3D is in the works

Aug. 23, 2010by: Niki Stephens

PIRANHA 3D was definitely the guilty pleasure movie of this weekend. It didn't chomp down on the macho man-wall that is THE EXPENDABLES. But it did settle with a nice $10 million opening.

Between the buzz and the "dolla dolla bills ya'll", Dimension has decide to gear up for a sequel. A press release was issued stating that helmer Alexandre Aja and producer Mark Canton would be back on board. Canton was excited about how well the film did, “We are thrilled that audiences are not just loving PIRANHA 3D, but cheering for it. And it’s fantastic that so many critics are really getting the movie and recommending it. We can’t wait to get to work on the sequel.”

So any early ideas on what the sequel might be like? More topless drunken escapades? Close. EW sites that in an interview last week, Aja was throwing out some possible scenarios, "We had many ideas, like the full moon party in Thailand — a huge event with like 200,00 young people from all around the world taking mushrooms and partying on the beach.” Mushrooms? Oh that will be a fun thing to play around with in the script.

Did you guys check out PIRANHA 3D this week? Did you love it? Would you be down for a sequel? All I have to say is God bless Elisabeth Shue.

Extra Tidbit: Yes, I referenced a Wu-Tang Clan song in this article. It felt right.

As long as...

I'm all for this, as long as they rip of jaws the revenge.

Have it follow the sheriffs son and girlfriend. have them move somewhere and the piranhas follow them.

I smell success.

Loved it.

I had a blast at the theater. This was the first 3D movie I saw that felt like it used 3D the right way.

The sequel needs to be more about the adults though. The teenagers were just stupid and poorly written.

Oh and More Christopher Lloyd!!

It's a film that will change the world as we know it. Is P 3d fast becoming one of the best cheesefests ever made. The majority of people who watched it love it.

Make no mistake though just because this film is exploitation on a grand scale doesn't mean world class talent isn't behind it's creation. Oh yeah and massive amounts of boobies, ass, and everything else in between.

To paraphrase Al Bundy when he took his family to the theater and snuck into something else because the one he

To paraphrase Al Bundy when he took his family to the theater and snuck into something else because the one he originally planned to watch was boring. He told Peg, i saw 40 hooters, a bunch of people got killed and it had no story whatsoever, it had everything Peg ( as he starts crying from the amazing experience ).

P 3d is that experience, a film for real horror fans, it's a man's man movie, men who love their horror without the emasculation, P 3d makes you realize how great it is to be a fan of horror and how awesome it is to be a man :)

If anything, it didn't have enough boobies :D

Will the sequel be about flying piranhas just like Paranha 2 which James Cameron directed?

pornstar slaughter!

I counted at least 4 recognizeable pornstars in the flick. this alone makes it a bluray purchase and ticket opening weekend for #2.

Christopher Lloyd

If they were planning this, and I'm hoping it'll be a remake of Flying Killers, they missed a trick by not having his character's final line be "Where they're going, they don't need water."
But yeah, Lloyd aside, the first one sucks.

YES PLEASE! Piranha 3D was the pitch perfect throwback movie we've waiting for. So many horror films come out these days as so-called "throwbacks" but hardly any of them work. This one does, and does so perfectly. Probably my third favorite film of the year behind Inception and Toy Story 3.

A sequel was inevitable, but I dunno about how good it would be. They nailed the tone of this one perfectly, where movies like Snakes on a Plane failed. As much fun as Piranha 3D was, I'm not sure if they can recreate that sense of joy when a bunch of drunk idiots are annihilated by flesh eating fish.

I saw it, and am in freaking love with this thing! The tone was pitch perfect. All the actors were in on it, and were clearly having fun. I'm definitely down for a sequel!

not sure

1st one was decent but had flaws namely underusing some good talent Rhames,Dina Meyer, the 3d wasnt great but tbh ive only seen one movie that did 3d any justice, also maybe a bit more tension building

I hope 'Piranha 2' features piranhas that can fly because they've invented the miniature jet-pack. Armed with rocket launchers.

If it's James Cameron to direct Piranha 3D 2, it comes full circle.

Great news

They are genuinely on to something here, a genuine re birth of exploitation films.

Grindhouse tried this but there was something artificial about it. P 3d didn't try to re create those types of films, Aja simply just made a real one without any pretense.

In the sequel i hope they go all out , maybe throw in a zombie angle. You get bit by one of the fish and you become zombie, now you are threatened in the water and on land. I know it's silly and fantastical, but that's the spirit of
