Some pretty interesting news broke exclusively over at Moviehole that, depending on how you look at it, could be good or bad.
The site writes that the reason Dimension Films/The Weinstein Company has delayed production, and thus the release of Piranha Double D (November 23, 2011), is so they can ensure the 3-D is done right (thank the gods).
“Joel Soisson, the genre vet who has worked on everything from ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ to ‘The Prophecy’ and ‘Feast’ (with Gulager, Dunstan and Melton) has been brought on board to not only produce ‘Piranha 3DD’ but rewrite the script by Dunstan and Melton,” they write. “But mostly, Soisson likely knows his way around a 3D movie. Though he hasn’t been involved with one directly, the filmmaker’s surely spent enough time studying and observing his frequent collaborator and friend Patrick Lussier, director of ‘Drive Angry 3D’ and ‘My Bloody Valentine 3D’, to know how to utilize and make the best use of the technology. So yes, Soisson’s knowledge of 3D is the reason he was brought onboard the project and not because the ‘Piranha 3DD’ needed a lot of work; the Weinstein’s simply want the film’s 3D sequences to play as effectively as the last one – as they would.”
It’s worth noting that Soisson recently wrote, produced and direct the horrid Children of the Corn: The Dweller. Take it for what it’s worth. Piranha 3DD has yet to begin casting, so everything you’ve read online thus far is false. BOOM!
