Just when you thought it was safe to walk, swim, drive or basically do anything! Along comes Sharknado and well, we’re screwed! So, with the instant success of Syfy’s b-movie flick Sharknado and its insane following we have now received the official word about the sequel and have a guess what it’s called? Okay, brace yourselves, it’s entitled Sharknado 2: The Second One… Yep, read on for all the details.
From the Press Release:
A decision has been reached! After reviewing more than 5,000 Twitter submissions to its “Name Sharknado 2” social media contest, Syfy announced that the title of the eagerly anticipated Sharknado sequel is… SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE.
Said Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy: “Since Twitter played such a huge role in the success of the original movie, we wanted to use that platform to ask our fans to name Sharknado 2. This response is another reminder of how Sharknado has become a pop culture phenomenon. We want to thank all our viewers for their wonderful contributions to keeping up the shark-mentum.”
Sharknado 2: The Second One, which will also be produced by The Asylum, hits land July 2014. The movie will be set in New York City.
In Sharknado regulars of a beachside bar, including owner Fin (Ian Ziering/”Beverly Hills 90210″), bartender Nova (Cassie Scerbo/”Make It or Break It”), and local drunk George (John Heard/Home Alone), teamed up with Fin’s ex-wife, April (Tara Reid/”Scrubs”), to investigate the ecological nightmare that has sharks swimming through the streets of Los Angeles and falling from the skies.
