Though 'Piranha 3D' didn't take a big bite out of the weekend box office (opening at No. 6 with $10 million on 2,470 screens), The Weinstein Co.'s Dimension Films label has announced that 'Piranha 3D -- The Sequel' is in the works.

The $24 million-budget film opened with critical plaudits from top reviewers around the country (and garnered an 81 percent favorable rating at Rotten Tomatoes). The consensus, according to Rotten Tomatoes: "Playing exactly to expectations for a movie about killer fish run amok, 'Piranha 3-D' dishes out gore, guffaws and gratuitous nudity with equal glee."
