Sharknado forecast for New York City in 2014

by -

If you exist on Twitter, or really any social media, you know all about Sharknado. How it’s a movie that’s about sharks that get caught in a tornado and then get thrown around the city of Los Angeles. How it’s Tara Reid’s most important work since she appeared in The Big Lebowski. How there was a scene with a man chainsawing his way out of a shark that looked eerily like a human birth. Well now you can know something else about it: a Sharknado sequel has been greenlit, and this time, the eye of the storm is passing over New York City.

Little is known about the coming storm at this point other than the fact that Syfy has agreed to return to the churning well of teeth, gore, washed-up movie stars and terrible, terrible CGI. But we do know that the movie, like Anchorman 2, will be set in New York, and will come out in 2014, so in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for Tara Reid and Ian Ziering on your block waving their arms at things only they can see.

Given that Syfy sponsors the Brooklyn Bridge Park movies, we’re going to politely ask that they drop a few sharks on the banks of the Brooklyn Bridge Park’s scenic view. Also, if you want to get in on the fun, tweet your best Sharknado subtitles to Syfy at @SyFyMovies using the hashtag #Sharknado. Syfy will be picking the best subtitle for the official release of the movie, so you can finally say you put your film degree to use if they pick yours.
