IAN ZIERING AND TARA REID REUNITE TO SAVE NEW YORK IN SYFY'S "SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE"

PRODUCTION BEGINS IN NEW YORK IN FEBRUARY

SHARKNADO 2 TO DEVOUR THE BIG APPLE THIS JULY

NEW YORK - January 30, 2014 - They're back - and shark happens! Syfy and The Asylum today announced that Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reprise their roles as Fin and April in the eagerly awaited Sharknado sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, which begins filming in New York February 13.

Anthony Ferrante will once again direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote Sharknado, the iconic pop culture sensation which chainsawed its way through social media last summer.

In Sharknado 2: The Second One, a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites - and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.

Sharknado 2 is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July.

Said Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy: "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."

Added Paul Bales, COO, The Asylum: "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 Asylum and Syfy have struck a deal with legendary casting director Mike Fenton and his partner Ann Frederick, of Fenton-Frederick Casting, to supervise cameo casting.
