But the producers behind killer fish camp/gore –fest Piranha 3D have decided to ignore the fact that the movie arrived in sixth place across the pond this weekend and instead ride the wave of critical glee to announce a follow-up.

“After earning rave reviews from top critics, wild cheers from audiences around the country, and $10 million in its opening weekend box office, Dimension Films is pleased to announce that **Piranha 3D: The Sequel **is in the works. Producer Mark Canton stated, ‘We are thrilled that audiences are not just loving Piranha 3D, but cheering for it.
