A bit of odd news coming out of the UK: The John Gulager directed sequel to Alexandre Aja’s Piranha has been pulled from the UK’s theatrical release schedule and will be heading straight to DVD across the pond on March 19th, 2012.

What does this mean for the domestic release of Piranha 3DD? Well, probably nothing, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on things for you just in case. When we know something, you’ll know.

Piranha 3DD reteams Feast director John Gulager and writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan in the sequel starring Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, David Koechner, Meagan Tandy, Paul James Jordan, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Hector Jimenez, Adrian Martinez, Clu Gulager, Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer and David Hasselhoff.

Thanks to DC reader Joey Monda for the heads-up.

Having awoken from their spring break extravaganza at Lake Victoria, the swarm heads upstream where they look to make a meal out of Big Wet, a local water park where when it comes to fun, nobody does it wetter! Thought they came to get wet, get loaded and get some, the staff and patrons get more than they bargained for when they must face the fiercest, most bloodthirsty piranhas yet. Lead by the strong-willed, studious Maddy and her friends, Barry and Kyle, the trio must dive in and take on these man-eating creatures using every ounce of their being … but can they be stopped?

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    That is the only website that says this, so it could be a mistake.

    The UK distributor hardly ever releases direct to dvd movies, espically considering the first one was a sucess over here. If they’re not going to give it a cinema release than it’s because the Weinstein’s are planning the same thing.

    That blows. I hope if it suffers the STV release here in the US that there’s a Blu-Ray 3D release.
