Get Your Beach Body Ready Because Another Piranha Film Is on the Way!

It’s been six years since Piranha 3DD, where we got a hefty dose of aquatic terror. Now it seems that IXFilm Group is making waters unsafe again with Piranha JPN: Summer of the Piranha, as evidenced by the announcement on their website.

Now, the only information we have about the film is that it has a tentative release date of 2018 and it will be produced by Hisako Tsukuba, who was a producer on every Piranha film since the 1978 original under the name Chako van Leeuwen. Additionally, this will be a Japanese production, and it seems like it will be set in Japan, if the IMDb page has anything to say about it.

Since 1978, there have been five Piranha films. The original was remade in 2010 from director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, High Tension) while the 2012 sequel came from John Gulager (Feast, Children of the Corn: Runaway).

As we learn more about this production, we’ll let you know!
