Yes, the Sharknado sequel is not a joke or an April Fool’s Day prank – it’s really happening. The sequel to the campy 2013 hit even has an official title courtesy of a Twitter contest. Sharknado 2: The Second One will shoot in New York and casting directors Mike Fenton and Ann Frederick have been brought on board to seek out A-list talent to fill cameo roles.
Fenton’s casting credits include Back to the Future, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Godfather: Part 2.
According to the official press release, Fenton and Frederick are on the hunt for A-list “film actors to Broadway stars to music celebrities to television hosts” to cameo in the sequel.
Syfy’s aiming for a July 2014 premiere of The Second One to be directed by Anthony Ferrante.
