Sharknado 2, the highly-anticipated sequel to SyFy’s hit original movie, will serve as the film debut for the Irish singing duo known as Jedward.
If you’re wondering what a Jedward is, then chances are you don’t live in the UK. John and Edward Grimes are popular singers and television presenters from Ireland. While their collective star may not shine very brightly in the US, producers seem interested in getting them on-board for the sequel.
“So excited John and Edward will be making there first movie debut in Sharknado 2 and will be on the soundtrack! Woo hop,” Tara Reid posted on Twitter.
Jedward also confirmed their involvement with the Sharknado sequel on the micro-blogging website. According to the duo, they also received the good news about the project from the American Pie actress.
“Talked to Tara Reid. We just found out that we are gonna star in Sharknado 2 and will also be doing a song for the soundtrack,” the singers revealed in a joint tweet.
Much to the surprise of just about everyone involved with the flick, Sharknado has become something of a cultural phenomenon. Not only did a few of the midnight showings of the low-budget cheesefest sell out across the country, SyFy says the movie gets more popular with each airing.
The proposed Sharknado sequel is expected to arrive at some point next year. While Ian Ziering has been confirmed for the follow-up, there’s still no word about Tara Reid. However, the actress recently said that rumors about her rejection are completely false.
“There is no script for Sharknado 2. Until I read it then I will make a decision. But everyone that is saying I got cut that is not true,” she recently tweeted to her followers. Chances are she’ll get to check out that napkin as soon as the ink dries.
A representative for SyFy also discussed the actress’ involvement on Twitter. According to the network, they haven’t officially booted her off the upcoming sequel.
“For the record, Tara Reid is awesome and was great to work with in Sharknado. We’d be lucky to have her back for the sequel. That is all!” the SyFy Twitter feed announced.
