Second bowl of shark spin soup
IAN Ziering and Tara Reid will once again live through a freak storm of sharks in the follow-up to Sharknado, the campy Syfy TV-movie that gained an unexpected following thanks to Twitter.
Former Beverly Hills 90210 star Ziering and American Pie star Reid have both agreed to reprise their roles as Finn and April, former husband and wife, in Sharknado 2: The Second One.
Expected to air in July, the sequel will be based on the same premise as the original: a tornado pulls sharks into the air and then rains them down on the city, leading to massive mayhem.
After the first movie set in Los Angeles, the sequel will take place in New York, where filming will begin from Feb 13.
Sharknado became one of Syfy’s most commented-on productions when it aired last July. As many as 5,000 tweets per minute mentioned the movie during the peak of Sharknado fever. — AFP Relaxnews
