Sharknado 6 is definitely happening and the first plot details have arrived online to prove it. SyFy has found themselves a reliable franchise with Sharknado, with the network cranking out one of these a year since 2013. What started as a self-aware B-movie has morphed into an utterly ridiculous franchise that has to keep finding ways to get even more ridiculous in order to justify its existence. Case in point, Sharknado 6 is going to involve time-travel and as a result, we're going to see dinosaurs, Nazis and Noah's Ark.
This all comes from the first plot synopsis for Sharknado 6, which doesn't have an official title yet. Though, if history tells us anything, SyFy will come up with something that includes a topical pun. For example, the fourth movie was titled Sharknado: The 4th Awakens and was released several months after Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters. In any case, here's the first plot synopsis for Sharknado 6.
"All is lost, or is it? Fin unlocks the time-traveling power of the SHARKNADOS in order to save the world and resurrect his family. In his quest, Fin fights Nazis, dinosaurs, knights, and even takes a ride on Noah's Ark. This time, it's not how to stop the sharknados, it's when."
So yeah, that sounds pretty crazy even by the established standards of the Sharknado franchise. It's a pretty safe bet that this movie is going to look ridiculously cheesy. Not only do they have to make CGI sharks on a shoestring budget, but now they're throwing dinosaurs and Noah's Ark into the mix, which means lots and lots of CGI animals. This would be tough to pull off effectively with a big budget. The real question is, who is going to play Noah? Odds are, some B or C list celebrity will get the gig.
Ian Ziering will return as Fin for Sharknado 6, alongside Tara Reid and Cassie Scerbo. Beyond that, the rest of the cast remains a mystery. However, you can bet that the movie will be jam-packed with cameos. Sharknado 5: Global Swarming featured Poison frontman Bret Michaels, comedian Margaret Cho and even Fabio, just to name a few. The cameos in these movies are totally random and run the gamut, so it's really tough to predict who could possibly show up in the upcoming installment.
If you're excited about Sharknado 6, or just morbidly curious, you won't have to wait all that long to see it, as this new report also states that the movie is set to arrive on July 25. With these first Sharknado 6 details making their way online, we're willing to bet a trailer isn't far behind. So be on the lookout for that, as we'll be sure to bring it to you once it's available. In addition to the release date, cast and plot details, the folks over at Bloody Disgusting also previewed the first poster for the movie, which you can check out for yourself below.
