Elizabeth Shue to Star in "Piranha 3-D"  


Why would Elisabeth Shue sign on, let alone entertain the thought of starring in "Piranha" remake? Surely the actress wasn't enticed by the film's 3-D technology. It's probably because Shue just wants to have fun in a film role designed for mindless entertainment.

According to moviehole.net:

Shue is playing the role of Sherrif Julie Forester, a take-charge authority figure in the community of Lake Victoria - where the action/ankle-biting takes place. She's the mother of Jake (one of the central characters in the film - the shy teenager who gets to prove his worth when human-eating fish threaten his family and friends), Laura and Zane.


Oh, similar to the roles Dee Wallace used to play in the '80s :happy

By the way, the remake is going to be directed by Alexandre Aja ("Mirrors," "The Hills Have Eyes") from a script with multiple writers attached (Aja, Josh Stolberg, Pete Goldfinger, Gregory Levasseur).

The Weinstein Company is hoping to release the film on March 19, 2010.

Now travel back in time with me, 1978 to be exact, and watch the trailer of the original "Piranha."
