We’re all a bit baffled by the surprise success of Piranha 3D—Alexandre Aja’s three-dimensional rehash of Joe Dante’s 1978 schlocky creature flick—but with a $10 million opening weekend and a surprisingly generous critical reception, a sequel to the gloriously bloody horror comedy is already in the works.
“We are thrilled that audiences are not just loving Piranha 3D, but cheering for it,” producer Mark Canton said in a statement. “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.”
Suck it, Eat Pray Love.
In spite of my love of B-movies, I’ve yet to see this bad-on-purpose epic, but if all I’ve heard about its over-the-top gore (in 3D!) and gratuitous nudity (in 3D!) is true, I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it. Get it? Sink my teeth? Comedy.
