Despite rumors to the contrary, Van Wilder star Tara Reid says that she hasn’t even been contacted for Piranha 3DD, let alone appearing in the movie.
Perhaps it was just a fan wanting to see Tara Reid eaten by a giant fish…who could blame them.
“I don’t even know what that’s about,” the American Pie star told EW. “We knew nothing about that. We don’t even know where that came from.”
Piranha 3DD is the follow-up to the 2010 Piranha 3D remake of the 1978 classic. The film raked in just over $10 million in the first three days of its opening. It went on to make $79.9 million worldwide.
Directed by Alexandre Aja, Piranha 3D was a success for both fans of the horror schlock genre and the use of 3D mixed with, well, boobs. It starred Elisabeth Shue, Jerry O’Connell, Ving Rhames and Kelly Brook’s breasts.
John Gulager (The Feast) will direct Piranha 3DD with Ving Rhames attached. Rapper Lil’ Wayne is also onboard.
Tara Reid joins Aubrey O’Day as big-breasted stars rumored to to join the production but ultimately deny casting.
“What does [Tara Reid] have going on, besides sleeping all day and eating turkey legs?” asks Local Fan. “The last time I saw her, it was that horrible picture of her boob hanging out. You know the one. The one where the strap of her dress fell down this horrible Franken-boob popped out. Horrible.”
Reid has joined the cast of American Reunion, joining fellow American Pie alums Jason Biggs, Sean Willian Scott and Alyson Hannigan. The film is due out in 2012.
