SDCC ’08: Alex Aja Compares ‘Piranha’ Remake to ‘Dead Alive’!

While promoting his upcoming horror film MIRRORS, BC caught up with director Alex Aja at the San Diego Comic Con who broke some really interesting news on his 3-D remake of Piranha, which he’ll be directing next for Dimension Films. “PIRANHA is huge budget – I wanted to make something different,” he tells Bloody-Disgusting. “[It will be] really fun and entertaining, in the vein of DEAD ALIVE.” If this film is as gory as DEAD ALIVE, consider this reporter in horror heaven. MIRRORS arrives in theaters August 15th.
