‘Piranha 3D’ to hit Indian screens Oct 29October 17th, 2010 - 8:56 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Oct 17 (IANS) After rocking US box offices with its stupendous success, horror movie “Piranha 3D” will release in India Oct 29 in English and Hindi.
Produced by Dimension Films, it is being distributed in the country by Multivision Multimedia India Pvt Ltd in association with Eagle Video and MGH Enterprises, according to a Multivision statement.
“‘Piranha 3D’ will be released all over India in more than 350 screens. The film has done well abroad. We are hoping that people will like it in India as well. It will also release in Hindi,” MGH Enterprises director Ashok Ahuja told IANS.
Directed by Alexandre Aja, “Piranha 3D” is a second remake of the 1978 film after James Cameron’s directorial debut “Piranha II: The Spawning” in 1981.
The series is remembered for unexpectedly putting a spin to Steven Spielberg’s “Jaws” formula with a tongue-in-cheek twist.
The movie features an ensemble cast that includes Steven R. McQueen, Jessica Szohr, Adam Scott, Elisabeth Shue, Kelly Brook, Riley Steele, Richard Dreyfuss, Jerry O’Connell, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Dina Meyer, Cody Longo, Ricardo Antonio Chavira, Paul Scheer, Ashlynn Brooke, Gianna Michaels and Eli Roth.
“Piranha 3D” is set in Lake Victoria, Arizona, where a tremor causes the lake’s floor to open, setting free scores of prehistoric piranhas who break all hell loose in the vicinity.
Piranhas - ravenous, razor-toothed monsters unchanged since the dawn of time are unstoppable killing machines, who act blindly under one primeval impulse - to hunt down anything that moves and strip it to the raw, bleeding bone in seconds.
A sequel to the movie is also in the works.
