Sharknado producers launch campaign for bonus scene

Producers of TV movie phenomenon Sharknado have launched an online crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a bonus scene in the upcoming sequel. Last year (13), the disaster film about a freak hurricane which dumps deadly sharks on the streets of Los Angeles became an unlikely hit, prompting network bosses to order a follow-up movie, due to air this summer (14).
While most of the filming has been completed, producers behind Sharknado 2: The Second One are giving eager fans a chance to see an additional scene, consisting of “sharks, chainsaws, and chainsaws being used in the vicinity of sharks”, if they reach their goal of $50,000 (£29,858).
Producers launched the campaign on crowdfunding site, and donors can receive rewards such as video diaries from the set and contents of the scene in advance.
Backers who donate $5,000 (£2,986) can win a walk-on role, and those who give $120 (£72) can have their voice mixed into the background of the film.
The sequel, which stars returning cast members Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, will air in America on 30 July (14).
