Piranha 3D Survivors to Return in Sequel
05.05.11 by Ryan
Always trust in Ving Rhames.
The actor revealed last December that his character from Piranha 3D would return for more in the sequel, titled Piranha 3DD. While it a was assumed that Rhames perished in the movie, the actor pointed out that "you don't necessarily see me die."
THR reports that Rhames will reprise his role as Deputy Fallon for Piranha 3DD, and he's not the only original cast member to return. Christopher Lloyd and Paul Scheer will also be back, as Lloyd's Mr. Goodman never got near the deadly piranha, and Scheer's character of cameraman Drew basically disappeared from the movie. Piranha 3D leads Elisabeth Shue and Adam Scott, so far, are not returning.
Also joining the cast is 30 Rock actress Katrina Bowden. Bowden's character is likely more fodder for the piranha, as her character was described as simply "being on the menu."
Bowden, Rhames, Lloyd, and Scheer will join recently cast newcomers Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th, The Crazies), Matt Bush (Adventureland), Chris Zylka (The Amazing Spider-Man), David Koechner (Anchorman), Meagan Tandy (Unstoppable), Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Hector Jimenez, Adrian Martinez, Clu Gulager and Gary Busey in a story where the piranha enter a water park.
The sequel comes from the creative team behind the Feast trilogy, including screenwriters (Feast's Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, director John Gulager, and producer Joel Soisson. The sequel is currently shooting in Wilmington, North Carolina.
