In the why-oh-why do we need this film category for today, we have official details for the next Sharknado film. It has been titled as SHARKNADO 5: GLOBAL SWARMING and is airing on August 6th on Syfy.
The tagline for the film is “Make America Bait Again!”
According to Deadline,
Fabio will play the Pope, Charo has been cast as Queen of England, and Chris Kattan is the British PM. Gilbert Gottfried will play storm chaser Ron McDonald, and Today veterans Al Roker, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb will appear as, well, themselves in the project. Also, cast in cameos are Clay Aiken, Tony Hawk, Olivia Newton-John, Bret Michaels and Margaret Cho as a fussy bride whose honeymoon is interrupted by sharks.
The fifth edition’s name and tagline are the results of a social initiative launched in April, in which Syfy says it invited Facebook users to submit their ideas via interactive bot.
Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, a production of The Asylum, is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante based on an original screenplay by Scotty Mullen.
The mission gets personal for Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and his bionic wife, April (Tara Reid) when their young son gets trapped in a traveling ‘nado and transported all over the world. From London to Rio, Tokyo, Rome and Amsterdam, the heroes seek assistance from Royals, scholars, Olympians and news talking heads in their epic battle.
