Dimension Films’ Date Shifts: ‘Apollo 18′ & ‘Piranha 3 Double D’ Bumped

We’ve been waiting for a new date all week and can now confirm that Dimension Films will be retooling Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s found footage Apollo 18 for launch on January 6, 2012. That’s a drastic shift from the planned April 22 date.

In addition, Piranha 3 Double D has yet to enter the casting phase, thus the release has been bumped to November 23, 2011, a few months later than the planned September date. The sequel to the Alex Aja-directed reboot will reteam Feast director John Gulager with writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan.
