Sharknado 2: The Second One to Begin Filming Soon; Ian Ziering and Tara Reid Returning!They’re back – and shark happens! Syfy and The Asylum today announced that Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reprise their roles as Fin and April in the eagerly awaited Sharknado sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One.

The sequel begins filming in New York on February 13th and is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July. Anthony Ferrante will once again direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote Sharknado, the iconic pop culture sensation which chainsawed its way through social media last summer.

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.

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.

    I actually yelled out loud “woohoo!” upon first reading this headline… it got me strangely excited.

      Quote in the article points out exactly why I think this is may prove to be a bad idea. The first film really was a perfect storm. Lightning doesn’t strike twice and I have a hard time imagining they can make the novelty of the concept work twice, even more so after what a dud Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark turned out to be.

        Yeah, I did notice some resemblance to what you’d previously been saying about this movie in this article too.

        It will suck, but they’re not really risking the franchise are they? I only really got all giddy about this due to the returning cast members; kind of leads me to wonder just how much worse or how much better they can make a sequel. The anticipation is already killing me.

        So I say bring it on!

        PS: Why hasn’t their been a Ghost Shark review? That film freakin’ rocks! You should be very proud of your credited work on it Foy 😉
