Syfy officially announced that their camp phenomena “Sharknado” will get a third installment next summer, with “Sharknado 2: The Second One” already in the can and set for a July 30 premiere. Apparently summer is all about sharks again, in a way we haven’t seen since “Jaws.” And definitely in a different way than “Jaws.”
Hey, there’s a place for all approaches to the shark genre.
In the first “Sharknado,” Ian Ziering and Tara Reid fought to save the city of Los Angeles from killer sharks invading the city via tornado transport. In “Sharknado 2,” Ziering and Reid return to fight a new batch of spinning sharks in New York, joined by the likes of Mark McGrath, Kari Wuhrer, Judah Friedlander and Vivica A. Fox.
C’mon Vivica… you were in “Kill Bill,” for chrissakes. Is this really where you want to be? You’ve worked with freakin’ Tarantino for cryin’ out loud.
So far Syfy is mum on which city they plan to fictionally annihilate this time around. I would argue it has to be a coastal city or it wouldn’t be realistic for sharks to travel there with a tornado. Wait… what am I saying?
Seattle would be good. Or New Orleans. Or best of all, please destroy DC. I think we can all get behind that.
“Sharknado 3” is coming July 2015. I think you’re going to need a bigger TV.
