'Sharknado 2: The Second One' Adds Cast Members

Just when you thought it was safe... "Sharknado 2: The Second One" unleashes casting news on the masses! Deadline is reporting that the Syfy original pop-cult classic will be going into production next week, and the growing victim, er, cast list, is pretty phenomenal. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid return as Fin and April (this time as Sharknado experts) which comes in handy as they are faced with the unnatural disaster in New York City.

Joining these two majestic creatures is a bevy of equally fantastic actors, including Vivica A. Fox (Fin's high school chum), Mark McGrath (Fin's brother-in-law), Kelly Osbourne (a flight attendant), Judah Friedlander (Brian), Andy Dick (a police officer) and Judd Hirsch (a TAXI driver).

If you missed the original "Sharknado," which seems absolutely impossible, it was about the severely negative impact of global warming that culminated in the streets and skies of California being over-taken by shark-infested tornadoes. The film essentially broke social media, with around 5000 tweets a MINUTE from everyone, including celebs like Wil Wheaton and Mia Farrow. Syfy re-aired the movie multiple times, and it even had a limited engagement run in select theaters.

Anthony Ferrante is returning to direct, with Thunder Levin penning the sequel's screenplay. Currently the flick is set to attack in July 2014, and we here at Paranormal Pop Culture are excited to see what swims our way!

Do you think "Sharknado 2" will harpoon its way into the hearts of millions like its predecessor, or will the Manhattan based sequel simply bite?
