Piranha 3D's $10 million opening weekend spawns a sequel?

Illustration for article titled Piranha 3Ds $10 million opening weekend spawns a sequel?

Piranha 3D has only been in theaters for one weekend, but that's not stopping the studio from delivering even more bloody bikini-clad fish carnage. Piranha 3D - The Sequel is already being planned by Dimension Films. But where?


While we're sure it's way too early to jump the gun on where Piranha 3D- The Sequel will be set director Alexandre Aja has often thrown out Thailand as a possible sequel locale — because they throw a giant party there, of course. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Aja talked about this amazing bash, ripe for a school of murderous fish.

Alexandre Aja admits that thoughts of a sequel have also crossed his mind. "We had many ideas," he says. "There is the Full Moon Party in Thailand, a huge event with like 200,000 young people from all around the world taking mushrooms and partying on the beach."


Sounds good to us, plus this idea abides by the Scream 2 sequel rules: the death scenes must be much more elaborate and contain more blood and way more carnage.

They'd never have the budget (or the creativity) to pull it off, but Piranhas in Central Park (and the NY sewers) would be a lot of fun.
