Sharknado 2 Gets the Greenlight From Syfy!

Source: ComingSoon

July 17, 2013

Which city will be attacked by flying sharks next? New York City! Following the worldwide social media frenzy around the July 11 premiere of Sharknado, Syfy today announced it will produce – Sharknado 2!

Sharknado 2 (working title), which will again be produced by The Asylum, is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in 2014.

Syfy also announced a special Twitter contest to help name the movie with an appropriate subtitle. Fans will be able to tweet their subtitle to @SyfyMovies using #Sharknado. Syfy will select the best submission as the subtitle for Sharknado 2.

In making the announcement, Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy, said: “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.”

In Sharknado, regulars of a beachside bar including owner Fin (Ian Ziering), bartender Nova (Cassie Scerbo) and local drunk George (John Heard/Home Alone) team up with Fin’s ex-wife April (Tara Reid) to investigate the ecological nightmare that has sharks swimming through the streets of Los Angeles and falling from the skies.

July 26, 2013

Regal Entertainment Group today announced that Regal will host midnight shows of the Syfy Channel's film Sharknado on August 2 at approximately 200 theaters across the country.

"'Sharknado' has become a force of nature in its own right. This project transcends the original television platform and has created tremendous buzz," stated Ken Thewes, chief marketing officer for Regal Entertainment Group. "There's just something epic about watching these huge beasts on the big screen with your friends and family. The crowd reactions will make for a memorable experience in our theatres."

At its peak, #sharknado registered about 5,000 tweets per minute, and accumulated more than 600,000 social media mentions while taking the internet by storm. Tickets for the midnight shows are available at the box office, online and through the Regal App.

"You know how audiences have had fun with 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' over the years. If the internet reactions to this film are any indication, then our moviegoers are primed and ready to enjoy 'Sharknado' larger than life in cinemas," said Chris Sylvia, director of digital marketing for Regal Entertainment Group. "Regal is proud to be giving our guests this chance to fuel the social media whirlwind by inviting friends to come to the show and tweeting reactions."

When a freak hurricane swamps the Los Angeles area, nature's deadliest killer rules sea, land, and air as thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace. Surfer and bar-owner, Fin (Ian Ziering), and his friends Baz (Jaason Simmons) and Nova (Cassie Scerbo), set off to rescue his estranged wife April (Tara Reid) and teenage daughter Claudia (Aubrey Peeples).

A full list of participating theatres is available here.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid to Return for Syfy's Sharknado 2: The Second One

Source: ComingSoon

January 30, 2014

Syfy and The Asylum today announced that Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reprise their roles as Fin and April for the previously announced Sharknado sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, which begins filming in New York on February 13.

Anthony Ferrante will once again direct from a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote the original Sharknado.

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.

Sharknado 2 is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July.

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.

The incredibly talented writing and producing team have crafted a thriller that consistently delivered suspense, twists and high quality drama. We look forward to growing this passionate audience in what promises to be an even more memorable second season."

Helix is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore ("Battlestar Galactica," "Outlander"), Steven Maeda ("Lost," "The X-Files") who is also showrunner, and Lynda Obst (Contact, Sleepless in Seattle). The series is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Kaji Productions and Lynda Obst Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television.

Syfy also announced that on June 19, the channel will kick off its new Thursday night block with the one-two punch of the season two premiere of "Defiance," followed by the series premiere of Syfy's newest scripted series, "Dominion."

Okay- it wasn't a total bomb-- but 40 M domestic and another 27M worldwide on a budget of 27M

which didn't even win its opening weekend (and is 50th all time (non adjusted) on opening weekends for January - the month in which studios release their dog movies... ) would not be a movie I consider a hit-- and especially not something that should drive a TV show... SYFY you are so frustrating

Well, yeah, but they aren't going to say that in a press release for the new show based on it. They aren't merely giving people a plot synopsis. They are marketing too.
