In case you didn’t kill enough brain cells with Sharknado and Sharkando 2: The Second One, SyFy has just announced the title and release date of, yes, a third Sharknado movie.
According to SyFy, the third installment of sharks flying through the sky and aero-eating people will be released on July 22nd and will be called Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!
Yeah! I love Sharknado! What else can you tell me?!
Well Dinkleberg, the cast is going to be pretty familiar on the third go-around. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid have surfaced from B-movie hell again and they’re being joined by some fresh meat, er, faces. Bo Derek, David Hasselhoff, Michele Bachman, Mark Cuban, Jerry Springer, and Ann Coulter all seem to want to get in on the brainstem barbecue of the Sharknado franchise.
Wait, Mark Cuban? What’s Mark Cuban doing there?
In a pure cinematic act of God, Mark Cuban will be portraying the President. The casting of this role is sure to provide lots of comic relief, as well as reinforce his undying popularity on the Internet.
Wait, I’m confused. Didn’t Sharknado 2 come out not that long ago?
I’m surprised too! Given the immense budget and supreme script-writing it takes to make one of these, it’s pretty remarkable that Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! is coming out as quickly as it is. In a crippling blow to humanity, but also proof that we haven’t lost our ability to poke a little fun at ourselves, Sharknado 2: The Second One blew away ratings, far surpassing any other SyFy original movie to date.
According to Deadline, approximately 3.9 million viewers, including 1.6 million adults in the 18-49 demographic, tuned in to see the second Sharknado film, which apparently beat So You Think You Can Dance on Fox. While this statement says more about the eventual fate of humanity than anything else, it does set up a nice precedent for Sharknado 3 and should rake in a good haul of cash for the network.
Is there any reasoning behind the summer release date?
Naturally. With kids out of school and little in the way of competition, SyFy is hoping Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! will steamroll everything in its path, much as its predecessors did.
