Anchor Bay Entertainment and Dimension Films will release the 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD of the campy comedy-horror film, Piranha 3DD, September 4th (tomorrow). A sequel to Piranha 3D – the 2010 reboot of the fan-favorite franchise from the ‘70s – Piranha 3DD stars Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies, Friday the 13th), Katrina Bowden (TV’s “30 Rock”), David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Get Smart), David Hasselhoff (TV’s “Baywatch,” “Knight Rider”), Christopher Lloyd (Piranha 3D, Back to the Future), and Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon, The Buddy Holly Story). Directed by John Gulager (Feast) and written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (the writing team behind four Saw, three Feast titles and the director/writer of The Collector and The Collection).
I recently hopped on the phone with Dunstan and Melton to discuss the challenges of topping the original on a diminished budget, David Hasselhoff’s cut introduction and working with religious water park owners on the raunchy sequel. We also get a tiny (almost no CGI) tidbit on The Collection. Head inside to check it out! READ MORE
