You know things aren’t going too well for you when a Sy-Fy movie about a tornado full of sharks cuts you from its sequel. That’s exactly what’s happened to Tara Reid! :( Despite the wild success of Sharknado, producers have decided she won’t appear in the follow-up film and only Ian Ziering will return. Whaaaaat?
Sources connected to the production tell TMZ … producers had a meeting this past week to discuss plans for the New York-based sequel — and the only actor they want back for round 2 is Ian Ziering.
Of course, Ian slaughtered more sharks than anyone in the original — killing fish from Santa Monica to Beverly Hills and even into THE VALLEY!!
Tara played Ian’s estranged wife in the flick — and survived the massive shark attack (even when the sharks broke into her HOUSE!!) — but Sharknado 2 is not in her future.
As for Ian, sources say both he and Tara scored around $50k for Part 1. Ian should rake in a lot more for the sequel. And good news … we’re guessing he’s available.
pretty odd. Isn’t part of the drawing power of Sharknado the fact that it’s so awful and so ridiculous and stars has-been actors like a dude from 90210 and TARA REID? What am I missing here?
