Grab your umbrella because it's about to rain sharks! Syfy made a big announcement Wednesday regarding “Sharknado 3.” The official title for the third installment in the TV movie franchise is “Oh Hell No!” and it will premiere Wednesday, July 22, at 9 p.m. EDT.
“Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” follows 2014’s “Sharknado 2: The Second One.” Chris Regina, senior vp of program strategy at Syfy, revealed in a press release that the new title tells fans the new flick will “boldly go where no shark movie has gone before.”
According to the network, the new two-hour original movie will hit shores this summer to cause more “mass destruction” – this time starting off in Washington, D.C. But the fun won’t stay in the Capital. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reprise their roles as Fin and April to stop the deadly “sharknado” as it heads down the East Coast to Florida.
Fin and April won’t be alone in the fight against the deadly predators. Cassie Scerbo will reprise her role as Nova, joined by some new star power. David Hasselhoff appears as Fin’s father, Gil; Bo Derek will play April’s Mother, May; and Ryan Newman will replace Aubrey Peeples as April and Fin’s daughter, Claudia. Other celebrity cameos include Mark Cuban, who will play the president of the United States; Ann Coulter as the vice president; Michele Bachmann as herself; Jerry Springer as a “manic tourist” named Mr. White; and NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick as a “pool lifeguard.”
The premiere date for “Sharknado 3” comes after some slight production problems. Filming hit a rough spot when approximately 40 employees went on strike to demand a contract with the International Alliance of Theatrical State Employees.
