Sharknado Red Carpet Event And Jedward Rumour – the cast of low-budget hit Sharknado were out in force this weekend for a one-off midnight screening.
The special big-screen showing took place at the Regal Cinema at L.A. Live and everyone looked very pleased with how well the small-screen sci-fi shocker had done and were also anticipating bigger paychecks still for the upcoming sequel Sharknado 2.
The movie’s main star is American Pie actress Tara Reid, who turned up for the red carpet event in a bright pink dress which showed off her impressive cleavage. She was joined on the red carpet by fellow cast members Ian Ziering, John Heard, Christopher Wolfe and the film’s director Anthony C Ferrante and the screenwriter Thunder Levin.
Tara has caused something of a stir today when she seemed to reveal that the follow-up movie was going to star Irish twin brothers Jedward, who she said were also going to write a new song for the soundtrack. The Jedward boys seemed to be well up for this as they quickly took to Twitter to respond early this morning that they had found out from Tara that they were to star in Sharknado 2.
Tara knows the boys from their time together on Celebrity Big Brother where the trio hit it off. She had to admit later in the day that she was just thinking aloud and it was “just an idea.” Although Jedward have a solid and loyal fanbase there are many that would have been thinking there was enough disaster in the first movie without adding their acting talents to any sequel.
The original Sharknado movie has now received 3 separate showings (each with bigger audiences than the one before) on the SyFy channel in the US and has also got great viewing figures on its release in Australia and on Eastern tv networks.
Finally audiences in the UK will get a chance to see what all the fuss is about this week as the film is being aired on the UK’s own SyFy channel this Wednesday.
