UPDATE: Piranha Won’t be Attacking Until August

ON

UPDATE: We’ve confirmed that the new release date is indeed August 27th.

The Los Angeles Times reports that The Weinstein Company has pushed back the release date for Alexandre Aja’s Piranha 3D from April 16 to sometime in August at the earliest. That month still has an open date with no releases on August 27th.

According to the newspaper, the studio is making the move to get it out of the way of Lionsgate’s Kick-Ass, which appeals to the same young demographics.

Piranha 3D stars Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Jessica Szohr, Jerry O’Connell, Cody Longo and Ricardo Chavira.
