Jerry O’Connell has joined the cast of “Piranha 3-D” for The Weinstein Company says Entertainment Weekly.
Alexandre Aja helms the action-thriller which co-stars the likes of Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss and Jessica Szohr.
The story is set around Lake Victoria in the mid-West when a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish.
Soon, unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food, but our heroine (Shue) has just one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured.
Filming kicks off next Monday at Lake Havasu, Arizona.
