Well, we told you a while back that Gary Busey was set to star in the fourth Sharknado movie.

And now, just in time to capitalise on Star Wars’ newly rediscovered popularity, the fourth installment in Syfy’s cult series is called… Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.

No, really. And we sort of love that.

Oh and it’ll air on Syfy on Sunday, July 31st at 8 p.m. on the cable network.

Set five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer’s “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No,” Fin (Ian Ziering), his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks – and ‘nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) least expected.

Tara Reid will return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign, which will determine the fate of her character. David Hasselhoff and Ryan Newman will also reprise their “Sharknado 3” roles, alongside new cast additions including Gary Busey, Cheryl Tiegs, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley and Masiela Lusha.

“Sharknado: The 4th Awakens” is a production of The Asylum. Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct an original screenplay written by Thunder Levin.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
