AceShowbiz - The third installment of Syfy's "Sharknado" franchise gets an offcial title and release date. The satirical disaster TV movie will be called "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!". The two-hour telepic is set to air on Wednesday, July 22, at 9 P.M.
"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," said Chris Regina, Syfy senior VP of program strategy.
Anthony C. Ferrante will return as director with the script by original writer Thunder Levin. %cIan Ziering% and %cTara Reid% are also back as Fin and April who will save the day when the sharks wreak havoc in Washington, D.C., before heading down the Eastern Seaboard.
It's supported by %cDavid Hasselhoff% as Fin's father Gilbert, %cBo Derek% as April's mother, %cJerry Springer% as a manic tourist, %cNSYNC%'s %cChris Kirkpatrick% as a pool lifeguard, %cChris Jericho% as a roller-coaster ride operator, %cMark Cuban% as POTUS, and %cAnn Coulter% as VP. Former Rep Michele Bachmann also makes a cameo as herself.
The production, however, was marred by a protest that started on March 3. Non-union crew members seeking an IATSE contract went on strike.
