The cheesy story follows seven people who spend a weekend at a lake house in the Louisiana Gulf area where their vacation quickly becomes a nightmare of hellish shark attacks - go figure. Now Heat Vision has word on the casting of the victims. Joining the project are Joel David Moore (Avatar), Chris Carmack (Into the Blue 2: The Reef - wait, they made a sequel?), Sinqua Walls ("Friday Night Lights") and Alyssa Diaz ("As the World Turns"). Obviously Ellis isn't going for the highest quality of talent here, and with a movie such as this who needs to.
Piranha 3D succeeded in all areas that Snakes on a Plane failed. I'm hoping Shark Night 3D will deliver the same caliber P3D did. However, with the cast so far, it doesn't seem like it'll pack as much of a comedic punch. Ellis needs to cast a couple of A-list has-beens to up the ante. Also, it'd be nice if the film worked as a stand alone piece of fluff without the 3D gimmick (meaning, I could've still enjoyed Piranha without the 3D). Anyway, I'm still not expecting much… I mean HELLO?! but of course, like always, I'm still interested. (haha) Shooting starts this September. Stay tuned for the first look coming sometime soon.
