As the Weinstein Company's Dimension Films has acquired the domestic distribution rights to "Piranha," Chuck Russell is more than ready to give hand at directing. Per Variety, Dimension will distribute the remake of the 1978 genre hit in all English-speaking territories.

As apparent form the title, "Piranha" is set at Arizona's Lake Havasu, a vacation hotspot that turns into an all-you-can-eat buffet when a phalanx of fish swim through a crack in a crater formed by a prehistoric eruption at the bottom of the lake.

Wrote the script is Russell with elements of drafts by Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger. In hand to produce is Mark Canton and Marc Toberoff, while Steve Barnett, J. Todd Harris, Vincent Maraval and Chako VanLeeuwen will executive produce.
