I'm happy to report that America has accomplished its two most important collective goals for 2014: Making a "Sharknado" sequel and keeping Tara Reid off the streets.
Syfy and The Asylum announced Friday that Reid and Ian Ziering -- who are quickly becoming this century's Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy -- will reprise their roles as Fin and April in the eagerly awaited Sharknado sequel, "Sharknado 2: The Second One," which is scheduled in begin filming Feb. 13 in New York City, according to USA Today.
There was some confusion last year over whether Reid would return. Which makes no sense at all because, as you know, there could never be a "Sharknado" film without Tara Reid.
Antioch native Anthony Ferrante will again direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote "Sharknado," the pop culture TV movie that made people want to throw carnivorous fish into extreme weather.
In "Sharknado 2: The Second One," a freak weather system descends on New York City which, naturally, unleashes a sharknado on its inhabitants, requiring Fin and April to save the city.
Unfortunately, we have to wait until July to see the magic happen on Syfy.
