The corny, sexy, successful 3D piranha movie is getting a sequel. The Weinstein Company just started production on Piranha 3DD.
Pirnaha 3DD will probably have a similar premise to the first movie. A bunch of sexy people who are partying on a beach get attacked by piranhas. But this time the movie will be set in the Big Wet Water Park.
The new movie will be starring Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies), Matt Bush (Adventureland), Chris Zylka (The Amazing Spiderman), David Koechner (Anchorman), and Meagan Tandy (Unstoppable).
