Will Richard Dreyfuss be eaten alive by piranhas???

Richard Dreyfuss and Ving Rhames have signed up to appear in Alexandre Aja’s 3-D horror remake of Piranha.

According to Shock Till You Drop, Dreyfuss will cameo in the horror film in a role that pays homage to Jaws.

No details have been confirmed for Rhames’s character, though he will join Elisabeth Shue and Adam Scott when the movie begins shooting next month.

The original 1978 revolved around a batch of flesh-hungry fish who were accidentally released into a river. The movie led to a sequel, Piranha Part Two: The Spawning, which launched James Cameron career as a director.
