Sharknado 2: The Second One shot on location in Times Square, and its star, Ian Ziering, treated onlookers Monday to a glimpse of his celebrated chainsaw skills. (In the first TV movie, Ziering, 49, memorably sawed himself out of a shark's belly.)
Although the first Sharknado was a ratings disappointment, it did prove to be a social-media hit, generating up to 5,000 Tweets a minute during the broadcast.
Tara Reid and Vivica A. Fox join Ziering for the sequel, which is scheduled to air in July 2014 on Syfy.
