- Syfy took suggestions from Twitter for a 'Sharknado 2' title
- The network selected a winner from more than 5,000 submissions
- The 'Sharknado' sequel will arrive in July 2014
The Twitter-verse has spoken. And Syfy listened.
The cable channel asked fans to pitch names for the "Sharknado" sequel, and the winning title is rather perfect.
Here it is:
"Sharknado 2: The Second One."
"Since Twitter played such a huge role in the success of the original movie, we wanted to use that platform to ask our fans to name 'Sharknado 2,'" says Thomas Vitale, executive VP of programming at Syfy.
"This response is another reminder of how 'Sharknado' has become a pop culture phenomenon. We want to thank all our viewers for their wonderful contributions to keeping up the shark-mentum."
The title was selected by Syfy from more than 5,000 submissions via Twitter.
"Sharknado 2: The Second One," which (like the original film) will be produced by The Asylum, arrives July 2014.
