Sharknado Screenwriter Confirms: Sequel in the Works!

by at .

A Sharknado sequel is one step closer to becoming a reality.

With star Tara Reid already on board for a follow-up to last Thursday's Syfy movie, screenwriter Thunder Levin now says he'd gladly pen another film in this suddenly popular franchise.

"It was like going to see Snakes on a Plane opening night in the theater," Levin told Mashable of the social media reaction. "Twitter users were yelling at the screen, shouting out lines and throwing virtual popcorn. It was great fun."

According Syfy , Sharknado delivered nearly 5,000 tweets per minute, although its actual ratings weren't especially impressive.

"I measure success by whether the audience enjoyed it," Levin said. "We're just trying to create entertainment here, so if people are happy and if they're having fun with it, then I'd say it's a success."

As for the Sharknado sequel? Levin says he likes the title SnailQuake.

But we can do better, right, THGers? Sound off now with your preferred name for Sharknado 2?
