Elisabeth Shue to Star in ‘Piranha’ Remake?

A pretty interesting rumor just hit the web as it’s being reported by Fearnet that the beautiful Elisabeth Shue – one of my favorite 80’s chicks (Adventures in Babysitting, Back to the Future II, The Karate Kid, Cocktail) – is “a likely candidate” to star in Dimension Films’ Piranha 3-D, their reboot of Joe Dante’s classic film from 1978 being helmed by genre fav Alex Aja (Mirrors, Haunte Tension, The Hills Have Eyes). This is by no means “official” and should be taken strictly as rumor right now. Aiming for release on March 19, 2010 from Dimension Films, Aja’s version takes us to Lake Havasu, Arizona, where a tremor causes the lake’s floor to open, setting free scores of prehistoric piranhas…
