Surprise! Guess Who Survived Piranha 3D and Will Be Back for More Fishy Mayhem in the Sequel?
Real talk: I was, perhaps foolishly, only mildly curious about the in-the-works sequel to Alexandre Aja's boobs 'n' blood killer fish pic Piranha 3D, which we recently learned will take place in a water park, because of course. But then came the shocking revelation that three characters will return for the sequel, Piranha 3DD -- at least two of whom I'd thought were goners for sure. See who lives to fight fish another day after the jump!
"Christopher Lloyd (BACK TO THE FUTURE), Ving Rhames (PULP FICTION) and Paul Scheer (THE LEAGUE) have signed on to join the cast of PIRANHA 3DD after surviving last year's feast," proclaimed the Weinstein Co. today in a press release. "The boys are back but will they survive another sharp toothed invasion?"
I don't know, because I could've sworn at least two of 'em perished the first time around. Can we surmise that after having his legs eaten off in shallow waters, Rhames' heroic, motorboat engine-wielding Deputy Fallon got a pair of fish-proof prosthetics? Or that Scheer, having literally disappeared from the movie before the final set piece, swan to shore while the piranha were busy chewing up and spitting out Jerry O'Connell's penis?
Evidence of Deputy Fallon's bravery in the line of duty:
Yes, I've already given more thought to the logistics of Piranha 3D canon than anyone involved. The sequel is currently filming and boasts a cast that includes Gary Busey, Danielle Panabaker, David Koechner, Clu Gulager, Katrina Bowden, and Chris Zylka, and is directed by John Gulager (Feast). Look for me in the middle row when Piranha 3DD opens (in, uh six months) on November 23.
