Sharknado producers need $50,000 for extra chainsaw scene in movie sequel

Fans are being asked to cough up for a bonus scene involving, you guessed it, sharks and chainsaws


Fancy becoming an associate producer on the new Sharknado film? Well, your luck’s in, mutant flying shark fan. 


The producers of Sharknado 2: The Second One are planning to add an extra scene to the upcoming movie, starring Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, but only if you pay for it. 

They are on the lookout for $50,000 via crowd funding website Indiegogo. And if you’re feeling generous enough to offer $25,000 you get an associate producer credit. If you’re not feeling that flush, $45 will mean a shark gets named after you, while $120 will see your scream used in the finished movie. 

When it comes to this bonus scene, all we know is: “there will be sharks, chainsaws, and chainsaws being used in the vicinity of sharks” which, let’s be honest, is probably all we need to know. 

10% of the the money raised will also, ironically, go towards shark conservation because the filmmakers say they “feel kind of bad about all the CGI sharks we’ve obliterated.” 

Sharknado 2 is being made by The Asylum, and is set to be “bigger, crazier and even more star-studded” than the original, which became an unexpected hit last summer.
