If you’ve been itching for a new instalment of the Piranha series, then we have some good news for you, as Bloody Disgusting has revealed that a new film is in development, titled Summer of the Piranha.
It would seem the new instalment is being targeted at the Japanese market; it has the alternative title Piranha Jpn and is being produced by Hisako Tsukaba, rights holder of the franchise. Details are scarce, but we do have some concept art:
The first Piranha was directed by Joe Dante and was released in 1978, with the James Cameron-helmed sequel Piranha 2: The Spawning following in 1981. The series relaunched with the 2010 sequel Piranha 3D, which ‘spawned’ its own sequel Piranha 3Dd in 2012. Summer of the Piranha is in pre-production now, with a 2018 release planned. »

Per Bloody Disgusting, Producer Hisako Tsukaba is currently working on a new movie in the Piranha series that is set to be released at some point in 2018. The movie is titled Summer of the Piranha and is reportedly already in the pre-production stages in Japan. »
