This might take the cake for the best news of the day: Tara Reid and Ian Ziering have just officially signed on to reprise their roles in the ‘Sharknado’ franchise — and we have the exclusive details, straight from the stars!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane — no, it’s Sharknado 3! The third installment of the science fiction thriller– which, as you know, features the bonkers catastrophe of shark tornadoes — will air on Syfy this coming July. As if that wasn’t awesome news enough, it has just been officially confirmed that original star Tara Reid and Ian Ziering will be returning for the film!
‘Sharknado 3’ Confirmed
Tara, who plays April in the Sharknado films, as well as Ian Ziering who plays Fin, have both just been officially confirmed to revive their roles in the third film. The news broke at the Syfy Television Critics Association panel on Jan. 15.
Also returning to the film is Thunder Levin, who wrote both the original and sequel screenplays.
‘Sharknado’ Stars Excited About Third Film
We are not the only ones who are stoked for the third installment of the Sharknado films!
While promoting the second film, Ian told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that he’s “absolutely” ready for more shark attacks. “Thunder Levin, the writer of the films has steered us well. I am hoping this is a seven course meal! I would like the third installment be taken to foreign shores! Sharkpocolypse Now!”
The actor who rose to fame on Beverly Hills 90210 is proud of his strangely successful sci-fi comeback. “Are you kidding me? I am the luckiest guy in the world!”
We asked Ian if he had a celebrity cameo in mind for the third film and he said Matt Damon! “He is an everyman and he makes it happen. I would love to see him in it.” We hope Matt is on board now that the third film is underway!
