Dimension Films has just released the official plot synopsis for Alex Aja's 3D remake of "Piranha," due to hit theaters March 10.
And here it is:
Jaws...lots and lots of jaws. From acclaimed director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA 3D, in the latest eye-popping 3D technology. A new type of terror is about to be cut loose on beautiful Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents. But our heroine (Elisabeth Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself.
This remake of Joe Dante's now classic 1978 campfest promises 3D boobs and tons of over-the-top gore. But due to weather and preparation, the film won't hit theaters until March 19, 2010, the date that has been officially confirmed by Dimension.
The cast includes Christopher Lloyd, Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, Riley Steele and Elizabeth Shue. Publicly released concept art from the film appears below.
