The most #viral movie to hit the small screen in the history of television (probably) was last week's SyFy original flick Sharknado. Have you somehow avoided the mass hypesteria that surrounded its premiere last Friday, like our very own John "I feel smug in that I still don't know what that is" Del Signore? In short, it's a movie about a SHARK TORNADO that hits Los Angeles and Tara Reid is in it. And now a sequel is on the way that will bring the terrible graphics and D-list cast to New York City.
The network just announced the Big News, saying: "Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm—on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel. What we can guarantee is that Sharknado 2 will be lots of fun. We’ll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn’t want our fans to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year."
Co-stars in the original, Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, told TMZ "they're 100% down to appear ... if they're asked." Also, they're looking for title and subtitle suggestions, and there is no bar set, so let your thoughts flow free. This is going to be amazing.... as long as it doesn't happen IRL.
