Well, That Didn't Take Long

Man, that was quick.

The Playlist (via EW) is reporting that Alejandro Aja’s Piranha 3d is already being fast-tracked for a sequel. Amazing what a single good weekend’s worth of ticket sales will do for you, especially when the movie was made for Hollywood pennies.

Yes, Dimension Films is apparently already moving on a sequel. I don’t know if it will be in 4D, or in Smell-O-Vision (ewww… fishy). Aja already has some ideas kicking around — he told EW, “We had many ideas, like the full moon party in Thailand — a huge event with like 200,00 young people from all around the world taking mushrooms and partying on the beach.”

Yikes. I mean, mushrooms are a weird enough experience. Taking them with 200,000 other people would probably turn my mind into steaming goo. Taking them with 200,000 other people who don’t all speak English would vaporize said goo.

Taking them with 200,000 people who don’t speak English while mutant killer fish turn everyone into ground meat would just ruin my shit. So what I’m saying is…

Hell yes. How the piranha get to Thailand is totally irrelevant.

Oh, and you could make them fly, a la the James Cameron-directed Piranha 2: The Spawning? That would really make my day complete.
