The annual tradition of SHARKNADO movies will continue this July, when the Asylum production SHARKNADO 4 is set to make its premiere on Syfy.
The fourth film in the flying fish franchise is headed up by returning cast members Ian Ziering and Tara Reid as shark fighters Fin Shepard and April Wexler, David Hasselhoff as Fin's father Colonel Gil Shepard, and Ryan Newman as Fin and April's daughter Claudia. Joining them for this go-around are Tommy Davidson as Aston Reynolds, the playboy billionaire CEO of tech company Astro-X; Gary Busey as April's father Wilford Wexler, a scientist taking part in the development of an Astro-X energy system that can stop the formation of tornadoes; Cody Linley as Fin and April's son Matt, now in the Army; Imani Hakim as Matt's friend and fellow soldier Gabrielle; Masiela Lusha as Fin's cousin Gemini; and Cheryl Tiegs as Fin's mother Raye.
The film will also, of course, be packed with celebrity cameos.
The story of SHARKNADO 4 picks up
five years after the East Coast was ravaged in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No.” Fin, his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks – and ‘nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) least expected...
Like its three predecessors, SHARKNADO 4 is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante from a screenplay by Thunder Levin.
Fans may remember that SHARKNADO 3: OH HELL NO! ended with a cliffhanger that left the April character in quite a predicament. Viewers were offered the chance to vote on whether or not #AprilLives or #AprilDies. If you voted in that poll, rest assured that your efforts were not in vain, April's fate was indeed determined by the outcome. To find out whether she lives or dies, you'll have to tune in to watch SHARKNADO 4 on Syfy in four months.
