We love Jedward here, and we’ve already said about their role in Sharknado 3 – but today it’s been officially confirmed by Syfy UK and we’re absolutely ecstatic!
In a press statement released today, Syfy UK said,
Just when you thought it was safe to go outside… Irish duo Jedward are set to make their TV movie debut in the eagerly-anticipated third instalment in the Sharknado franchise.
Identical twin brothers John and Edward Grimes will appear alongside Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Cassie Scerbo in the latest helping of the global pop culture sensation, coming to Syfy UK within 24 hours of its US debut.
If you’ve not seen the first two instalments of the shlock horror franchise, you might want to, just to get a feel for what to expect. Right from the get-go you realise these are not serious movies. They’re hilariously funny – even the very premise of a tornado filled with living sharks is ridiculous. And that’s what makes this franchise so good. It’s so bad, it’s good.
Is this a suitable film for John and Edward to appear in? As the movie is part of a highly popular franchise, we say yes, as it could open many doors for them in the US, as well as internationally – the Syfy channel is syndicated across 86 countries. Is comedy the right choice for them? Fans will know just how funny the Dublin duo can be, so it’s another thumbs up from us.
Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! will be shown on the US Syfy channel on 22 July, with the rest of the world broadcasting it in primetime within 24 hours of that date. You can buy the first two films from Amazon.
