Alexandre Aja's 'Mirror's is to wrap this week and both Aja and Grégory Levasseur have already begun to prep the new remake for Dimension Films', 'Piranha'. An new version of Joe Dante's '78 film. And this time around it's going to be lensed in 3-D!

"That was the really exciting reason we jumped on that movie," Aja tells this writer in the company of Levasseur. "We were on the set of P2 and we were like, 'How cool would it be to see that live-action movie in 3-D?' We are thinking at the same time, let's see a real R-rated movie in 3-D with the new technology! So, Piranha is going to be completely in 3-D."

Expect a complete re-working of the concept from Joe Dante's original. A while back, it was leaked that the script concerned Spring Breakers becoming fish food for a school of prehistoric piranha set loose by an underwater earthquake.

"That was the plot of the script and that was really fun," Aja enthuses. "Years later the script came back in a different incarnation, so we convinced Bob Weinstein to take the Spring Break plot and let us do what we wanted to do with it. There is not one character or one situation that is similar to the Joe Dante or James Cameron [Piranha] movies - it's completely, completely, completely different."

Dimension have already set a July 24th 2009 release date.

"I think it's a good choice and the fact that they're putting it in that spot is also showing they really believe in a blockbuster movie. That's what the script is like. It's a blueprint of a roller coaster. It's about fun, jumps, gore and fish..."

Aja also wants people to be aware that in spite of what the IMDB said he is not in line to direct a remake of 'Silent Night, Deadly Night'.
