Syfy Orders Third 'Sharknado' Film

The second one is getting a sibling...
Before the Sharknado even hits NYC this July 30, Syfy has confidently ordered a third nado full of sharks! They have their sights set on the summer of 2015 because by then, we'll be accustomed to our summers being invaded by weather disturbances filled with hungry fish. After becoming a social media sensation last summer, it's no wonder Syfy ordered a third in anticipation of lightning striking twice this summer.

The network exclusively revealed to Adweek that a third movie was green-lit and Adweek proceeded to write five pitches on what they think the film should en-tail. So no script or casting news is available but we'll definitely keep you posted. Sharknado 2: The Second One will star Tara Reid, Ian Ziering, Vivica A. Fox, Andy Dick and Mark McGrath and airs Wednesday, July 30 at 9 p.m. ET.

Below are two samples of what Adweek is proposing, including casting suggestions:

Starring Nathan Fillion, Portia de Rossi, Alison Brie and Joel Hodgson, the third Sharknado tears apart San Diego during the reunion of cult classic TV series SpaceShark 2025. During a panel Q&A with fans, the down-on-their-luck cast is rent asunder by the very monsters their fictional characters used to battle. Will they learn who engineered this catastrophe? And when they do, will the answer shock them?

Sharknado 3: Sharksplode!
Executive produced by Michael Bay with 35 percent new footage, the world really has a mess on its hands when a waterspout hits a once-in-a-lifetime ... uh, thrice-in-a-lifetime ... school of sharks—and then a mid-Atlantic oil rig! Now filled with flammable light sweet crude, the angry and frightened fish burst into waterproof flames on impact with the ground. Our only hope may be the brave men and women of the Navy's elite SHaRK unit, who must place themselves in harm's way between hundreds of sharksplosions... and Big Ben.

Now what are your thoughts on a third film and where do you think this nado should hit?

We need to see a Sharknado hit the South. Georgia, maybe, or South Carolina. Sharknado 3: It's Sharks, Y'all
