A battle of jaws and brute strength. Forget Freddy Vs. Jason, this is what fans really want to see…
Mega Shark has battled a giant octopus and a ferocious “crocosaurus” and, apparently, fans of the franchise have demanded more action from the enormous freak of nature who can leap thousands of feet in the air and destroy half the Golden Gate Bridge.
The Asylum, the motion picture production and distribution company behind films such as Syfy’s Zombie Apocalypse and Battle of Los Angeles, has met those demands by giving Mega Shark her most dangerous enemy yet, her mechanical doppelgänger – Mecha Shark!
The Asylum has officially greenlit production on Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark, the third installment in the Mega Shark franchise, following Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus in 2009 and Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus in 2010. When Mega Shark returns in this all-new feature film, the government releases the top-secret Mecha Shark to defeat the franchise’s popular monster in a fierce battle that threatens the planet.
“The fan response to the Mega Shark franchise has been rabid,” said The Asylum partner Paul Bales. “In addition to a very persuasive online petition, we found that Mega Shark has taken on a life of her own. We’ve received photos of Mega Shark cakes, toys and games on a near-daily basis, and we thought it was high time she did battle with an iconic Mecha monster.”
Mega Shark’s success was evidenced early on when the studio released the Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus trailer, garnering 2.5 million online views within the first week. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus both have had successful runs on the Syfy Network in the U.S. and have seen great success in the international market.
But one question remains – who will be Mega Shark’s next victim? The Asylum will begin casting later this year.
