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!!
Going into Super Bowl weekend with the BEST NEWS EVER is like a dream, a dream we don't want to end!
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.
We're not sure how bad your luck has to be to get caught in a rare Sharknado even twice, but we can't wait to see the reason behind Tara and Ian fighting the perfect predators again!
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.
