Recently “Piranha 3DD”, the sequel to last year’s fun creature feature, found its slot on the film release schedule being pushed back by two months. Now, two new additions have been made to the cast and crew.
Veteran horror film writer/producer Joel Soisson (“Dracula 2000,” “Highlander: Endgame”) has come onboard the project to re-write Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan’s script and produce the film reports Moviehole.
Meanwhile, actress Tara Reid has also joined the cast reports Perez Hilton. Reid, mostly famous for her tabloid image in recent years, has been booking projects quickly this week as she’s also jumped onboard “American Reunion”, the fourth “American Pie” film.
With ‘Piranha’ she joins a cast that includes “Glee” star Mark Salling and “Camelot” actress Tamsin Egerton. John Gulager directs and shooting kicks off soon in North Carolina.
UPDATE: The Weinstein Company have sent a statement to EW denying both Reid and Salling’s involvement.
