Alexandre Aja is re-writing the screenplay for the horror/thriller remake, Piranha for Dimension Films; he's also directing and producing.

The film is based on the 1978 flick; set at Lake Havasu, Ariz., a small, scenic town that is a spring break destination. The Hollywood Reporter adds when tremors tear open a crack in the lake floor, all hell breaks loose as ravenous Piranhas surface and people begin to disappear.

A production schedule for Piranha has not been set.
