If you haven’t heard of Sharknado, then where the hell have you been? The film has literally taken the world by storm, and when I say world I mean Twitter. Thousands upon thousands of tweets in regards to Syfy’s latest flick Sharknado have stormed Twitter and the film has simply exploded.
With the film being such a surprise hit, even for the folks over at The Asylum and Syfy, it appears as if a sequel may be underway. According to Variety, a sequel to Sharknado is in early discussions as we speak, although official plans are yet to be announced.
Something more interesting is that Damn Lindelof (Prometheus, World War Z) has been Tweeting about the film for the past few days hyping up the film. Although I’m sure he is just having a bit of fun, Lindelof Tweeted the following;
I am going to write the Sharknado sequel and I am going to do it before Shaknado is over.
Craig Engler, the senior executive of Syfy Tweeted the following in response;
@DamonLindelof We’ll pay you handsomely for that Damon. And by handsomely I mean shockingly little…
We all know they are just having a bit of fun, but what if Damon Lindelof did actually write the sequel for Sharknado 2? What would you want from a sequel, and what do you think he could bring to the table?
All I can say is, long live the B-movie!
