Following news earlier this week that all the Lake Victoria action for the sequel with bite, 'Piranha 3DD', will in fact be moving into the pipelines (literally!) by home invading unexpecting residents' bathrooms, swimming pools and no doubt little nips in the toilet areas a new bunch of characters have been named and shamed. No casting news just yet but the John Gulager helmed 'Piranha 3D' sequel is due to arrive in theatres from 23 November 2011 stateside and will be penned by 'Feast' writing duo Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Check out the new character info below.
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.
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 and Shelby
Sisters - one a tart, the other a wannabe tart. Ashley's the 'dude magnet' who is use 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?
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.
'Piranha 3DD' invades your local theatre from 23 November 2011.
