Filming for 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' begins in New York
The filming of ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One’ is officially in full swing, as the cast have taken to Times Square to shoot scenes for the upcoming sequel. Stars Ian Ziering, Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath were showing how to act on top of a New York cab on Wednesday as the world braces itself for the 'Shaknado' sequel.

Jumping straight into the action, new cast member Vivica A. Fox is seen standing on top of a New York Cab alongside co-star Ian Ziering. Vivica was dressed for action, wearing combat trousers and a leather jacket as she held on to Ziering and a young dark haired man. Another new cast member, Judd Hirsch, was also seen filming with Ziering. The 'Taxi' star will be playing a taxi driver in the movie, one who stands on top of his car a lot seemingly.

One new cast member who wasn't seen filming on Wednesday (perhaps thankfully), was Kelly Osbourne. The ‘Fashion Police’ star tweeted last week ‘I guess the news is out Im going to be in #Sharknado2 they asked me & I just could not resist! #SoExcited.’ It’s been revealed that Kelly will play a flight attendant in the movie which also stars Andy Dick. Also not on hand was ’30 Rock’ star Judah Friedlander who will play a character named Brian, but producers are keeping any further character details under wraps.
Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath was also out in Times Square filming with Ziering, who will play his brother in law in the movie. The pair were seen hanging out of a taxi cab in one shot and also assuming the 'on top of cab position' in another.

If you can't wait for some on top of cab action, 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' is set to air in July on SyFy. Anthony Ferrante is returning to direct once again with writer Thunder Levin providing the script. The sequel's plot is ‘a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites - and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.’ We’re not sure that it can top the first movie in the cringe worthy stakes but judging by the pictures we’re not holding out for a much better offering.
