Elia Cmiral has been hired to score the horror sequel Piranha 3DD. The movie is directed by John Gulager who is best known for helming the Feast trilogy. Ving Rhames, Christopher Llyod and Paul Scheer are reprising their roles from last year’s original film. They are joined by new cast members Danielle Panabaker, Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, David Koechner, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Megan Tandy and David Hasselhoff. The film is reportedly set in a newly opened waterpark. Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton (Saw IV, V, VI and The Final Chapter) wrote the project’s screenplay and Mark Canton (300, Immortals), Joel Soisson (Dracula 2000) and Marc Toberoff (My Favorite Martian) are producing. Michael Wandmacher was the composer of last year’s first part of the rebooted horror series. Piranha 3DD has originally been scheduled for a release this November, but The Weinstein Company has recently pushed back the release of the Dimension Films production to an undetermined date in 2012.

As reported earlier this year, Cmiral also has the thriller Rites of Passage starring Christian Slater and produced by Mark Canton (Piranha) coming up.
