Prepare for the return of killer flying sharks! Syfy and The Asylum are working on Sharknado 5 and have confirmed filming is currently underway in Bulgaria. The fifth film of the campy horror comedy series will once star Ian Ziering as Fin Shepard and Tara Reid as April Wexler. Cassie Scerbo is also returning as Sharknado fighter Nova. Anthony C. Ferrante is back as director and Scotty Mullen wrote the script for the still untitled fifth film of the franchise.

Sharknado 5 will take the action international, with filming set to take place in five countries including the UK and Australia. As with the previous Sharknado films, we can expect a batch of random celebrities to show up for cameos in the upcoming fifth film.

Sharknado 5 Script

The Plot: The original 2013 Sharknado film, which introduced a cyclone depositing man-eating sharks on the citizens of Los Angeles, became a worldwide phenomenon and spawned a pop culture franchise. In Sharknado 2: The Next One, New York City was the target of the disaster, and in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, a mega-sharknado made its way down the “Feast Coast” from Washington, D.C. to Florida. In the most recent installment, Sharknado: The Fourth Awakens, the shark-infested storms went national. The film ended with the Eiffel Tower ripping away from Paris and crashing down on Niagara Falls – a chilling indication that no one in the world is safe!

Now, in Sharknado 5, with much of North America lying in ruins, the rest of the world braces for the inevitable – a global sharknado. Fin Shepard and his family must put a stop to this disaster before Earth is completely obliterated.
