You may recall a couple of weeks ago, the great guys over at FEARnet running a rumour that involved “Cocktail” cutie Elisabeth Shue hippy-hippy-shaking her way into Alex Aja’s “Piranha” remake.  They’ve been trying to get confirmation for the past couple of weeks, but the Weinstein’s seem intent on staying zipped.  Had the opportunity to suss out the situation for them this weekend – and got ‘em an answer.

Well, consider the rumour on the money. Deal is as good as done. I’ve now talked to two folks on the film – one being a writer on the 3-D project – who’ve confirmed that Mr Shue is indeed in negotiations to play the female lead.

This’ll be quite the depature for 45-year-old Shue, whose best known for doing more meatier fare like “Leaving Las Vegas”, “Mysterious Skin”, “Molly” and “The Trigger Effect”. Not that the sister of former Melrose fave Billy doesn’t have a penchant for a good popcorn flick – she did, after all, star in two “Back to the Future” flicks (she replaced Claudia Wells as Jennifer from the first sequel onwards), the first “The Karate Kid”, Paul Verhoeven’s invisi-man thriller “Hollow Man”, and the abovesaid drama-for-drunks “Cocktail”, playing Tom Cruise’s Waterfall Shag.

Shue is playing the role of Sherrif Julie Forester, a take-charge authority figure in the community of Lake Victoria – where the action/ankle-biting takes place. She’s the mother of Jake (one of the central characters in the film – the shy teenager who gets to prove his worth when human-eating fish threaten his family and friends), Laura and Zane.

The supporting cast and background extras are being filled over the next fortnight.
