Actor Adam Scott, of ‘Knocked Up’ and ‘The Aviator’ fame has reportedly been signed on as the male lead, alongside Elisabeth Shue, in Alexandre Aja’s latest horror venture – the 3-D remake of ‘Piranha’.
‘Piranha’ is set in Lake Havasu, Arizona, where a tremor causes the lake’s floor to open, setting free scores of prehistoric piranhas. Scott will appear as Novak, a diver for the US Geological Service who helps discover the piranha outbreak.
Scott recently spoke to Moviehole: “[Piranha 3-D] should be fun, I love the original and the pedigree involved, [Joe] Dante, John Sayles. Alex is an amazing director and a such a cool guy, really looking forward to it”.
This will likely be lightyears away from the tongue in cheek style of Joe Dante’s original effort back in 1978. Let’s just hope Aja can once again bring some new ideas and frehsness to the genre.
