Oscar Winners and Porn Stars, or: "It will be a very realistic death. A piranha comes out of my mouth."

There are so many things that amuse me about this article from the Daily Mail about the making of the new Alexandre Aja horror flick Piranha 3D.

The film is a remake of the horror classic Piranha – and sees Kelly [Brook] take the role of college girl Dani.

Firstly, Kelly Brook is 30 years old and she's still playing college students? Mature age college student, I guess. And, really, does anybody consider Piranha a "classic"? Hardly. At least the sequel has kitsch value as the first film James Cameron ever directed!

Kelly is joined by Elisabeth Shue and Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss in the film...

We were already aware that Oscar-nominee Elisabeth Shue (for Leaving Las Vegas) was in this, but was the first time I had heard about Oscar-winner (for The Goodbye Girl) Richard Dreyfuss appearing as well. An obvious Jaws reference from Aja, surely, but still surprising. I guess Dreyfuss wanted that third storey on his house.

And Kelly is not the only eye-candy on display in the film. The producers have revealed porn star Riley Steele will also be joining the cast as a stripper named Crystal, who meets a bloody end.

And to think Shue and Dreyfuss could be upstaged not only by third-dimensional fish, but a porn star who, as the article says, starred in Naked Aces 5 is slightly bonkers and all filled with boundless possibilities for hilarity.

Riley said: ‘It will be a very realistic death. A piranha comes out of my mouth.’

Literally the greatest thing I've read all day (I guess I haven't been reading that much). And not just taken at face value, either, as coming from a porn star is one big ol' double entendre. Lovely.

Also, this production photo amuses me too. The look on the little girl's face is hilarious.


Her mother will be happy, no doubt.
