This past Friday we revealed the full Friday schedule for Comic-Con 2010 and now it seems one of those panels will not be happening after all. Hitfix is reporting that The Weinstein Company is pulling its Piranha 3D panel from Comic-Con 2010.
The new story reveals that Comic-Con denied the footage that they were planning on showing from the film, because it wasn't family-friendly enough for the convention, according to Comic-Con's director of marketing and public relations, Daniel Glanzer, who spoke to the site.
"My understanding is that the footage wasn't all ages appropriate," Glanzer told HitFix. "We don't check ID to get into those meeting rooms, so we don't want something inappropriate."
Glanzer also told the site that The Weinstein Company could have proceeded to have a panel without showing any footage, but they instead opted to pull their panel from the event. The Piranha 3D was slated to run from 11 AM to 11:45 AM on Friday, July 23 in Hall H.
However, Glazer did tell the site that The Weinstein Company still could resubmit new footage to have a panel at Hall H this year.
"This is not uncommon. They could resubmit," Glanzer says about Piranha 3D returning to the official schedule. "It's a little over a week so it could happen."
We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further Piranha 3D or Comic-Con 2010 news as soon as we have more information.
