Syfy and producer The Asylum have announced the official title of the third installment of its Sharknado franchise – Sharknado3: Oh Hell No! – adding that the two-hour premier will air Wednesday July 22 at 9 p.m. eastern time.
The movie will be released on all Syfy channels worldwide – in 86 countries in the UK, Australia and across Europe, Asia and Latin America - when it premieres in international primetime within 24 hours of the United States debut.
“We wanted this third title to boldly go where no shark movie has gone before,” said Syfy senior vice president program strategy Chris Regina in a statement. “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! embraces the larger-than-life irreverence that has made these movies so popular and entertaining.”
Sharknado 3 will cause mass destruction in Washington, D.C. before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida, and stars Ian Ziering as Fin, Tara Reid as April and Cassie Scerbo as Nova. Joining them will be David Hasselhoff as Fin’s father, Gil; Bo Derek will play April’s mother, May; Ryan Newman will play April and Fin’s daughter, Claudia Shepard, and Jack Griffo will portray Claudia’s friend, Billy.
Additional cameo roles include Mark Cuban as the President of the United States; Ann Coulter as the Vice President; Michele Bachmann as herself; Jerry Springer as Mr. White, a manic tourist; Washington Redskins tackle Tom Compton as a reporter; *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard, and Chris Jericho, who will portray Bruce the roller coaster ride operator.
Anthony C. Ferrante will once again direct, based on an original screenplay by Thunder Levin. Sharknado 3 is a production of The Asylum.
“The sharks and tornadoes get all the glory, but we would like to thank our long-time marketing guru Mike DiGrazia who first suggested ‘Oh hell no!,’” said The Aslum producer David Michael Latt ina statement. “A dedicated fan of the genre, Mike created the tag lines for 1 and 2 – ‘Enough Said!’ and ‘Shark Happens’ – as well as the Sharknado posters, including the original, which was a viral sensation on its own.”
When it aired last July 30, Sharknado 2: The Second One became Syfy’s most-watched original movie ever.
