Tara Reid & Ian Ziering Set To Return For 'Sharknado 2: The Second One'


Tara Reid Ian Ziering Cassie Scerbo John Heard

The Twitter fuelled success of SyFy's Sharknado will definitely be repeated this July when the sequel is released on small screens across the US.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid have signed on to the sequel of Sharknado.

Sharknado, in case anyone needed clarification was the monstrosity created by SyFy writer, Thunder Levin, in which a tornado sweeps into its vortex a large number of sharks. The tornado, filled with man eating sharks, proceeds to terrorise Los Angeles and it's up to one small group of survivors to destroy the swirling mass of teeth and fins.

Sharknado Review


OK

You couldn't even say this movie is so bad that it's good, because it's seriously terrible, but it's also hilariously entertaining. Sometimes it means to be idiotic, but more often we are laughing because the effects are so appalling, the script is nonsensical and the cast look like they got lost and wandered onto the set by accident. Fans of awful movies won't want to miss it.

The premise is simply ridiculous: Los Angeles is in the grip of a shark infestation, as swimmers in about four inches of water are being gobbled up by Great Whites. Just then, a freak hurricane arrives from Mexico carrying water-spouts packed with sharks that are dropped into the city streets. Our hero is Fin (Ziering), a surfer dude who's worried about his estranged wife April (Reid) and their two grown children (Peeples and Hittinger). So he grabs his best buddy Baz (Simmons), the tough-girl barmaid Nova (Scerbo) and a local drunk (Heard) and they charge to the rescue. After a series of outrageous adventures, they come up with a crazy plan to save the city.

Mashing together every disaster movie cliche imaginable, along with nonstop amusing Jaws references and L.A. in-jokes, the film isn't nearly as stupid as it looks. And it looks really stupid. There isn't a single sequence that makes a bit of logical sense due to the dirt-cheap production values and clunky digital effects. Every now and then, the filmmakers edit in a documentary shot of actual sharks swimming just to remind us what they look like, as opposed to the clumsy rubber and digital variety that fills the screen.

Terrible

Clearly something went horribly wrong as this thriller was being made, because despite a solid cast, gorgeous locations and an intriguing premise, the film is an incoherent mess. Sure, it looks achingly cool, but there isn't a single moment when the characters' motivations make any sense. And there's never a hint of suspense or danger.

It doesn't help that the set-up revolves around two of the least cinematic things on earth: finances and computers. Timberlake plays Princeton grad student Richie, who runs a gambling website to pay his tuition but loses his savings when another site cheats him. So he heads to Costa Rica to confront the online casino boss Ivan (Affleck). Impressed with his initiative, Ivan offers him a job, and soon Richie has more cash than he can possibly spend. But for some reason, all he wants is Ivan's colleague-girlfriend Rebecca (Arterton). Then a nosey FBI agent (Mackie) forces Richie to help him take Ivan down.

Director Fuhrman showed considerable promise with another renegade loner in The Lincoln Lawyer, but this film simply refuses to fill in enough of the gaps. Nothing that happens here is remotely convincing, as the characters are continually thrust into half-developed scenarios. Perhaps there's a more coherent longer version out there, because this one feels like it was edited with a machete. Even as a cautionary tale about the dangers of greed, this story has nothing relevant to say.

Sharknado Sequel: A Title Is Chosen, More Sharks Are Coming


Tara Reid Ian Ziering John Heard

It's Shark Week ladies and gents and what better way to celebrate than unveil the announcement of the movie title we've all been waiting for. Sharknado, the film that visualised the inconceivable horror of sharks, AKA the shredders of the sea, taking to air and land as a hurricane rages through a waterlogged Los Angeles, will be reincarnated in a sequel.

Tara Reid & Ian Ziering Lived The Horror Of Sharks On Land.

Starring shark defenders Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, Sharknado saw sharks blasted in their droves out of drains, they flew in their gnashing swarms through the stormy air and swam craftily through the underwater streets of LA with one thing on their mind. Blood...and reviews so bad the acid burned through the words. The internet's reaction ranged from "woah, sharks!" to nervous disparagement that was thinly veiled behind the "LOLZ." However, one chilling question gripped everyone's minds. Could there possibly be...more sharks?

It seems unlikely Tara Reid will be reprising her role in a Sharknado sequel. Sources close to the show's producers have said they are not interested in having the 37-year-old actress return.
