After we heard this piece of news our world turned upside down!
Uhm, yeah, we're confused too.

Life is a magical, magical thing — and we have the proof RIGHT HERE!
Tara Reid and Ian Ziering have officially signed on to do Sharknado 2!!
This summer — July, specifically — is when NYC will have to brace itself for it's worst problems in history… being plagued by storm-riding sharks in Sharknado 2: The Second One, the sequel to the social media phenomenon from last year.
Here's what SyFy's executive Vice President had to say:
"Sharknado was an extraordinary ‘perfect storm' which captured the attention of movie fans across the globe. You couldn't go anywhere without hearing about Sharknado! By reassembling the creative team–and dropping sharks onto New York's iconic sites–we're unleashing yet another ‘fin' wave of shark-mania."
Hilariously, the company behind Sharknado (Asylum) added:
"We're thrilled to be able to bring back the talent that made Sharknado a hit. Can lightning strike twice? I don't know, but it's a scientific fact that you're more likely to be killed by lightning than by a shark. This film will have lightning and sharks, so that's got to count for something."
The original movie generated 5,000 tweets per minute at its peak — so we wonder if they can re-capture that magic!
We also hear the budget for this one is close to the $300 million mark — but don't quote us on that, because we totally made it up just now.
