Next March, one Gossip Girl will be faced with razor sharp teeth to match her razor sharp wit.

Jessica Szohr, best known for her role as Vanessa on “Gossip Girl,” will join the cast of upcoming film “Piranha 3D,” Dimension Films announced.

Szohr will join the already star-studded cast of Elisabeth Shue, Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, Adam Scott and Dina Meyer.

E! Online reports that Szohr will play Kelly, a “hot young townie caught up in the excitement of co-eds who have descended upon the area for spring break.”

“Piranha 3D” is a remake of the 1978 horror film. It will be directed by “The Hills Have Eyes” remake director Alexandre Aja.

The new movie follows the plot of the original film — town being terrorized by a man-eating, prehistoric piranha — except this time, it’s in 3-D.

“Piranha 3D” is set to release March 19, 2010.
