There are no sea creatures that can match the terror that was permanently placed in moviegoers when Steven Spielberg
, but if anything were to come close, it might be Piranha
. No, the Piranha
franchise, which actually started as a spoof of Spielberg
's classic shark thriller, has never quite been the critical darling and beloved blockbuster that the original Jaws
was, but the series has persisted over the years and has provided some solid, if campy, sea creature horror. Now it looks like after a few years away, the Piranha
franchise is ready to make a return to the big screen next year.
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.
