Better find your Twitter login, Sharknado is back. Syfy’s cult favorite will be debuting on the channel July 22. Sharks from the sky people. Titled Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No, the movie promises to rain sharks down on a major metropolitan area.
Oh, and it singlehandedly helps out Twitter’s quarterly earnings with user metrics. The main characters are returning, along with some head shaking guest stars. Tara Reid and Ian Ziering will both be reprising their roles on the film.
The cult status actually earned Ian Ziering a spot on Dancing With the Stars this season. Career wise, I think that’s a step to the side.
Cassie Scerbo will also return to battle the sharks, after skipping out on Sharknado 2. It’s not just returning old cast members for Syfy. The network is going all in with the wildest guest casts possible.
How about some David Hasselhoff? He plays Fin’s father, Gil. Bo Derek will play April’s mother, May. Don’t get too creative with those names, you might lose viewers Syfy.
Not crazy enough for you? Mark Cuban will play the President of the United States. When asked why he took the role, he said because he could. Now that’s honesty Hollywood could use. Why did you take this role? Umm, because it paid me an exorbitant amount of money. Not because of the script.
Jerry Springer will appear as Mr. White, a crazed tourist. Washington Redskins tackle Tom Compton plays a reporter. Hey, he’s just there so he doesn’t get fined.
And rounding out the madness is a bit of nostalgia. Chris Kirkpatrick of ‘NSYNC will play a lifeguard.
Yeah, sounds just nutty enough to watch. The network is planning on a faster international rollout this year too. On July 23, telecasts in 86 countries will begin.
Oh, and if you think Syfy is crazy, you should know Sharknado 2 was their most watched original movie ever.
What do you think? Will you be live tweeting Sharknado in late July?
