NEW YORK, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Key scenes for Sharknado 3 will be shot at Florida's Universal Orlando Resort, Syfy and The Asylum announced Thursday.
Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Cassie Scerbo, the creature feature will premiere on the cable television network in July. The third installment in the franchise will focus on yet another shark-infested storm, with this one "causing mass destruction in the nation's capital, Washington, D.C., before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida," a news release said.
Ziering and Reid will reprise their roles as Fin and April, respectively, while Cassie Scerbo will play Nova, her character from the original 2013 Sharknado TV movie.
Anthony C. Ferrante will once again direct, based on an original screenplay by Thunder Levin. The Asylum is producing the picture.
Sharknado 2: The Second One became Syfy's most-watched original movie ever with 3.9 million total viewers when it premiered last July.
