SHARKNADO 5 Has Been Announced and Is Currently in Production
I seriously can't believe that there is going to be fifth Sharknado film. SyFy and Asylum announced today that they've started shooting Sharknado 5, and Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will once again reprise their roles as shark-fighting experts Fin Shepard and April Wexler.
It amazes me that there's such a big following for this stupid-ass franchise, but people seem to enjoy the ridiculousness of it. I've personally just found it painful to watch. If you are a Sharknado fan, I've got an excerpt from the script for you along with a description of the story.
Yep, there's that wonderful writing fans have been waiting for. As for the synopsis, here's what was given in the press release:
Sharknado 5, which sees the deadly weather phenomenon of shark-infested storms bombard cities around the world, will film in more than five countries, including the UK and Australia. Anthony C. Ferrante, who directed the first four films, is back to helm this latest installment, based on a script by Scotty Mullen.
In Sharknado 2: The Second One, New York City was the target of the disaster, and in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, a mega-sharknado made its way down the “Feast Coast” from Washington, D.C. to Florida. In the most recent installment, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, the shark-infested storms went national. The film ended with the Eiffel Tower ripping away from Paris and crashing down on Niagara Falls – a chilling indication that no one in the world is safe!
Now, in Sharknado 5, with much of North America lying in ruins, the rest of the world braces for the inevitable – a global sharknado. Fin Shepard and his family must put a stop to this disaster before Earth is completely obliterated.
The film is shooting in Bulgaria. There's no information one what the title will be yet, but do you have any funny suggestions?
