Cannes 2008: Piranhas Remake To Go 3-D

Remake expected to earn R-rating too.

Hot news on the Piranha front - the forthcoming remake of Joe Dante's 1978 horror classic will be shot in 3-D. As previously reported, Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) will helm the project, about a school of killer fish munching on teen flesh during spring break. And with the film's international rights currently being sold in Cannes, Dimension Films head Bob Weinstein explained "The film presents us with a unique opportunity to launch a new global franchise and take advantage of the incredible developments in 3-D technology." The original Piranha, not in 3-D. Director Aja will work with 3-D expert Neville Page (currently collaborating with James Cameron on Avatar) to create the creatures, with the violent horror expected to earn itself

Well, I guess this is one remake that will be turning heads.... (into skulls in a matter of seconds)

Bad puns aside, Im less excited for the movie itself, more for the tech going into this. In a way consider it an extended preview of Avatar.... with fish.
