NEW YORK, March 18 (UPI) -- Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! is to premiere July 22, Syfy and The Asylum announced Wednesday.
The third installment of the small-screen franchise will once again star Tara Reid and Ian Ziering as a hapless, but resourceful couple caught in the midst of shark-infested storms. This time around, the action will start in Washington, D.C., then head down the Eastern Seaboard to Florida.
"We wanted this third title to boldly go where no shark movie has gone before. Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! embraces the larger-than-life irreverence that has made these movies so popular and entertaining," Chris Regina, Syfy's senior vice president of program strategy, said in a statement.
"The sharks and tornadoes get all the glory, but we would like to thank our long-time marketing guru Mike DiGrazia who first suggested, 'Oh hell no!' A dedicated fan of the genre, Mike created the tag lines for 1 and 2 -- 'Enough Said!' and 'Shark Happens' -- as well as the Sharknado posters, including the original, which was a viral sensation on its own," added David Michael Latt, a producer with The Asylum.
