Asylum and SYFY announced yesterday that Tara Reid and Ian Ziering will be returning in the much anticipated sequel to Sharknado entitled Sharknado 2: The Second One. Yeah, that’s pretty catchy right? Anyway, the film starts production in New York February 13th. Check out the details below.
A few more familiar faces will be joining Reid and Ziering. Anthony Ferrante will once again direct from a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote the original Sharknado.
In Sharknado 2: The Second One, a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.
Sharknado 2 is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July. Said Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy: “‘Sharknado’ was an extraordinary ‘perfect storm’ which captured the attention of movie fans across the globe. You couldn’t go anywhere without hearing about ‘Sharknado’! By reassembling the creative team – and dropping sharks onto New York’s iconic sites – we’re unleashing yet another ‘fin’ wave of shark-mania.”
Added Paul Bales, COO, The Asylum: “We’re thrilled to be able to bring back the talent that made ‘Sharknado’ a hit. Can lightning strike twice? I don’t know, but it’s a scientific fact that you’re more likely to be killed by lightning than by a shark. This film will have lightning and sharks, so that’s got to count for something.”
The Asylum and Syfy have struck a deal with legendary casting director Mike Fenton and his partner Ann Frederick, of Fenton-Frederick Casting, to supervise cameo casting. We hope we see some legit B-Movie royalty in this sequel and as soon as we have a trailer for the flick we’ll let ya in on it.
More as it comes.
