It was reported recently that sequel veteran Joel Soisson has come aboard Dimension’s PIRANHA 3DD to
rewrite Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan’s script and serve as a producer, and
now info on the lead roles in that screenplay has been revealed.
Moviehole spilled the details on who’s populating the John Gulager-directed movie, set at
a water park that’s invaded by the killer fish. Here are the main heroes and
potential victims (with some mild potential spoilers):
Barry: Intelligent, thin kid with a super-smart IQ and a
knack for “hacking”—but instead of working for a Microsoft or the government
he’s he’s using his skills to spear garbage at the water park. Oh, Barry seems
to harbor a secret crush for co-worker and local good girl Maddy; together,
they set out to thwart the fish.
Maddy: The “Elisabeth Shue” of the picture, if you will.
Smart marine biology student, working with her father Chet (also the boss) at
the park. Was supposed to be away doing a summer internship so she could get
into grad school but has returned—much to the abhorrence of the local kids who think
she’s a bitch (i.e. she’s a threat because she’s smart)—at the request of her
abusive redneck father who said he needed help running operations. Naturally,
being so smart and remaining fully clothed, Maddy’s the one who discovers
Piranha’s have entered the park; Pop, of course, doesn’t want to know about
that—killer fish are bad for business.
Ashley & Shelby: Sisters—one a tart, the other a wannabe
tart. Ashley’s the “dude magnet” who is used to getting her way; Shelby, her
sister, is the quiet, smarter one. Naturally, Shelby wishes she were more like
her popular sister. Ashley’s all bitch, it seems. She’s getting frisky in a van
with boyfriend Travis when she decides to slap some handcuffs on him. The van
starts to move…next thing ya know they’re in the water. Unable to find the keys
to the cuffs, Ashley leaves Travis behind in the water…with the fish. Nice.
Shelby has a thing for local guy Andy and vice versa—ultimately she tricks him
into deflowering her. After all, nobody likes a virgin, right?
Kyle: Local copper. Bit of a sleaze. Use to date Maddy. He
thinks she’s just going to drop her duds and let him back in again now that
she’s returned to town. Nope, she knows better now.
In addition, the site notes that the story is a direct
follow-up to the previous PIRANHA, with news footage of that movie’s spring
break massacre shown in the background. While no casting—including survivors
from the first film—has been announced, the script has a few cameo parts to be
filled with familiar faces.
