Aja bites into 'Piranha'
Director to remake horror parody
By PAMELA MCCLINTOCK

Dimension Films has hired French filmmaker Alexandre Aja to direct a remake of "Piranha," Joe Dante's 1978 dark parody of Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" that was followed by a sequel from James Cameron.

Atmosphere's Mark Canton ("300"), IPW's Marc Toberoff and Gregory Levasseur are producing the stylized horror-comedy. Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg penned the script, with Aja planning a rewrite.

Aja, part of a group of up-and-coming horror filmmakers known as the Splat Packers, has a distinct vision in updating "Piranha," saying he wants to pay homage to all the "creature films that made me fall in love with the genre."

Updated story takes place at Lake Havasu, Ariz., a favorite destination for partying spring breakers. When a tremor causes the ground to open up beneath the lake, chaos and terror break out as ravenous piranhas are released.

"We will maintain the fun and thrilling aspects of the original film but look forward to upping the ante with a modern-day twist," Dimension's Bob Weinstein said.

Toberoff, along with IPW head of production J. Todd Harris, secured the necessary rights and took the project to Atmosphere. Exec producers are Harris, Alix Taylor and Chako Film's Chako van Leeuwen.

Aja was last in theaters with horror-thriller "The Hills Have Eyes" and is in pre-production with New Regency's "Mirrors."

Aja quoted here:

"My goal is not to remake 'Piranha,' but to create a completely new adventure paying homage to all the 'creatures' films that made me fall in love with the genre," Aja said in the article. "It is the ultimate popcorn movie that pits beer-soaked, sunburned spring breakers against killer, bloodthirsty animals."

With Alexandre Aja as the director without a doubt this will be good.

I recently got the original on dvd so I gotta see it soon.

Piranha is one of my favorite childhood horror films, i'd watch a remake. It could be fun.

I love those old creature based horrors......maybe Aja can redo Amsterdammed.

I hate James Cameron though and don't care or know why he'd do the sequel.

I've never really understood this movie, along with Jaws, Lake Placid and other 'vicious animal' movies...just stay out of the damn water.

Anywho, Aja is directing so it'll probably be good...I wouldn't mind seeing a modernized version of people be nibbled to death by piranhas.

My thoughts exactly on all counts.

Aja directing is a truly exceptional decision. The original is great fun, and a remake is due. But will they play it for laughs?
