Syfy and Asylum have unveiled the official title for the third Sharknado film. You’ll recall Sharknado 2 earned the title of Sharknado 2: The Second One after fans of the campy flying shark films submitted suggestions. And Sharknado 3 will now be known as Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! because, as Syfy’s Senior VP of Program Strategy Chris Regina explains, they wanted the title to 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,” said Regina.

“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, Producer, The Asylum.

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! will debut on Syfy on July 22, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. The network also revealed the movie will air on all Syfy channels worldwide within 24 hours of its US premiere.

The Plot:

Sharknado 3 will cause mass destruction in Washington, D.C. before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida, and stars Ian Ziering as Fin, Tara Reid as April and Cassie Scerbo as Nova. Joining them will be David Hasselhoff as Fin’s father, Gil; Bo Derek will play April’s mother, May; Ryan Newman will play April and Fin’s daughter, Claudia Shepard, and Jack Griffo will portray Claudia’s friend, Billy.

Additional cameo roles include Mark Cuban as the President of the United States; Ann Coulter as the Vice President; Michele Bachmann as herself; Jerry Springer as Mr. White, a manic tourist; Washington Redskins tackle Tom Compton as a reporter; *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard, and Chris Jericho, who will portray Bruce the roller coaster ride operator.
