Let’s hope that scene actually takes place!
The only actual images of the lead monster show it as somewhat smaller:
Thankfully, producer Paul Bales comments: “Don’t let the size of this one worry you… it gets bigger.” He told Kaiju Search-Robot Avery:
The piranha in our movie are a mutant strain that start off normal size and then grow to about 100 meters as the movie progresses.
There are HUNDREDS of them and they eat EVERYTHING.
100 meters! Sounds good.
Meanwhile Paul Logan plays CIA analyst Jason Fitch, who stays about the same size:

His co-stars include pop singer Tiffany as Dr Sarah Monroe:
and Barry Williams (best known as Greg Brady on The Brady Bunch back in the 1970s) as CIA Director Bob Grady — it’s a pop culture feast!

It will be released on 27 April 2010.
