At this past Comic Con we overheard some really interesting news. We learned that Dimension Films has hired scribes Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to rewrite Piranha 3-D for director Alex Aja. Melton and Dunstan have become household names in the horror world as they’ve scripted the three FEAST films, SAW IV, V and the upcoming sixth film, a draft of the HELLRAISER remake, THE TINGLER and have even collaborated on MIDNIGHT MAN, which was also directed by Dunstan. It looks like we’ll be getting plenty more gore when PIRANHA hits theaters July 24, 2009.
