Both PIRANHA 3DD And THE AVENGERS Start Shooting Today!

Which will be the bigger hit? :-) Gee, I wonder. Both PIRANHA 3DD and THE AVENGERS start shooting today!

Here's what AVENGERS director Joss Whedon told Whedonesque:
Tomorrow we start shooting (I THINK I'm legally permitted to say that). Day one. That's right. We'll be shooting the pivotal death/betrayal/product placement/setting up the sequel/coming out scene, at the following address: [Marvel Lawyers rush in, take Joss's keyboard, blowtorch a picture of his family like in "Stormy Monday", drink his milkshake, leave the seat up, fluff his pillows, violently unfluff his pillows, leave] Went too far. My bad. Anyhoo, it should be a fun day, followed by the eighty thousand other fun days it will take to finish this. I'll be checking in from time to time, if there's news or I crave attention (i.e. am awake) . None of it will be Avengers news -- I have some very denty pillows to remind of that -- but I may have tidbits. (They're not about Firefly. I should say that up front, if only to protect Sis Mo from the HATORZ.) Some of you may be saying, Joss! Why this link, here, now, why, huh, howcum? My friend Allyx turned me on to these guys, and I'll tell you, they've gotten me through this intensely pressurized, preply time. I strongly recommend checking out their other vids -- I've watched them many many times, and I have a very special place for "Teamwork" in my heart. These guys are the guys. And IS there a better movie title than "Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses"? I thought not. So wish me luck. DO IT! LUCK! NOW! I'm off to finish some Buffy pages, and then figure out what the movie is about already. I'm pretty sure it's about the Justice League [Marvel Lawyers re-enter, unspeakability occurs] or possibly something else. I'll get it. I've been looking forward to this. For about 46 years. Catchphrase! -j.

Marvel's THE AVENGERS comes to theaters May 4, 2012.

Regarding John Gulager's PIRANHA 3DD, not a lot is known about it other than casting. Matt Bush, Danielle Panabaker, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Jean-Luc Bilodeau and David Koechner to name a few. I see no big names though - nothing of the calibre of Richard Dreyfus. Certainly HE won't be back... :-)

We do have a small bit of a location teaser from The Weinstein Company though:
There’s something in the water . . . again. And this time no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of the best summer attraction, The Big Wet Water Park.

PIRANHA 3DD bares its teeth November 23, 2011.

Stay tuned for more info on these productions as they come in!
