/// Syfy Is Making a Third Sharknado, and We’ve Already Written 5 Pitches for It
Syfy tells Adweek exclusively that it has green-lit a third movie in its increasingly silly Sharknado franchise before even airing the second one (official title: The Second One). The first flick cost the network a scant $250,000, a cost repaid in social chatter and fan love . Now the network has committed to a third film to be set in a yet-to-be-determined city, presumably with the rest of the principal cast from Sharknado and Sharknado 2: The Second One, provided no airborne carnivorous fish spend their last moments on Earth munching on Tara Reid or Ian Ziering between now and then. So here, without further ado, are five pitches we feel Syfy should consider while the network tries to figure out how next to fling a funnel cloudful of surprised apex predators teeth-first into the public imagination. Oh, and for the record, Sharkando 2 premieres Wednesday, July 30, just after San Diego Comic Con.
