LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Prehistoric killer fish will get another chance to sink their teeth into audiences in an upcoming sequel to “Piranha 3D.”
Dimension Films, which released the over-the-top thriller this past weekend, announced Monday that part two is in the works.
“Piranha 3D” didn’t have a great opening, debuting in sixth place at the box office with $10.1 million. But it got an overwhelmingly strong critical reception, earning 81 percent positive reviews on the Rotten Tomatoes website.
The movie follows a pack of piranha unleashed on spring breakers partying on an Arizona lake. Mass carnage ensues. Elisabeth Shue, Ving Rhames and Jerry O’Connell star.
