"'I don’t even know if we can top [Piranha],' lamented sequel director John Gulager, whose horror film Feast was the subject of the Bravo moviemaking documentary series Project Greenlight in 2005. 'I don’t think that was totally our goal. We just wanted to be different. They had Academy Award-winning actors and stuff. We just wanted to have our own separate story.'" [AP via WP]
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!
Speaking with Movie Hole, screenwriter Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Good Luck Chuck) spilled the news that he and Bobby Florsheim have written Paramount's remake of To Catch a Thief, the 1955 Hitchcock romantic thriller starring Cary Grant as a cat burglar and Grace Kelly as the woman he falls for. The update, Stolberg enthuses, will be "more modern" and filled with gadgets -- and is being produced by Neal Moritz, the man behind such modern, gadget-filled flicks as xXx and the Fast and the Furious franchise.
