As much as we loved Piranha 3D, there were a few unresolved issues left floating in the water. Thankfully the highly anticipated John Gulager directed sequel, Piranha 3DD, tows two of them to shore.
Remember funny man Paul Scheer’s (pictured right) character? He just kind of disappeared. You see, due to budget constraints his death scene, while filmed, never appeared in the finished version of the film. All the more reason to have him back for round two.
Star News caught up with Scheer to get the skinny on just what he’ll be doing in the sequel. Both his character and Ving Rhames’ deputy character are back, and somehow they’ve become friends in between movies, likely bonding over their ordeal, which has left the good deputy terrified of H2O.
“I’m trying to get him back into the water,” Scheer said, which is how the two characters end up at a water park (played in the film by Jungle Rapids) where “things go wrong.”
Scheer said that he and Rhames crammed six scenes into their busy day of filming and that he and Rhames don’t spend much time with the film’s other stars, which include Danielle Panabaker, David Hasselhoff and Katrina Bowden.
“It’s almost like a short film throughout the movie,” Scheer said of his scenes with Rhames. “It’s our little journey. We don’t interact with any of the other main characters – just us on this crazy journey during a piranha attack.”
Look for Piranha 3DD in theatres on November 23rd.
