Another quick update on the casting for Alex Aja’s Piranha 3-D. It appears that adult film star Riley Steele will be tackling the role of “Crystal”, which is said to be one of the films leads. Steele is currently a contract girl for The Digital Playground and debuted in the big-budget porn epic “Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge.” She has also gone on to star in a handful of new releases from the studio including “Riley Steele: Perfect Pet” and “Riley Steele: Chic.”
“[Riley’s] natural beauty will light up the screen as she frolics with the hordes of spring break partygoers in our very contemporary, scary 3-D movie,” producer Mark Canton said.
“I am extremely proud of Riley Steele and her significant role in ‘Piranha 3-D,’” Digital Playground CEO Samantha Lewis said. “This is an amazing opportunity for Riley as the 94-page script was written to capitalize on her powerful sex appeal and has her appearing in a large number of scenes. I have every confidence in Riley’s ability to instill all of her beauty and charisma to the film through her spectacular screen presence.”
“I thought getting an audition for ‘Piranha 3-D’ was one of the highlights of my life, but when I was offered the part, I almost died,” Steele said. “I’m going to be around all these amazing actors, so I really want to keep up and learn from them.”
The film already has an impressive lineup that features Elisabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, Dina Meyer, Adam Scott, Jessica, Szohr, Jerry O’Connell and a very special appearances by Richard Dreyfuss and Joe Dante.
Piranha 3-D will be directed by Alexandre Aja and is currently filming in Arizona and is scheduled for a March 19, 2010 release date.
