(LOS ANGELES) — Tara Reid’s name is not chum after all. A producer of Syfy’s Sharknado has denied a report that said Reid will not be asked back for the sequel.
The Asylum’s David Latt tells The Hollywood Reporter, “The short answer is: Nope. Tara is invited back. Honestly, I don’t know where that TMZ story came from.”
Latt adds that producers have not pitched to Syfy the story line for the sequel, but it will be set in New York City.
Latt notes, “Hopefully Reid will be the one turning us down because this bizarre film gives her — and the rest of the cast — some great opportunities, and therefore she will be unavailable.”
Latt says that despite all of the rumors, Reid was great to work with.
“She showed up to play. Knew her lines. Was into this crazy, silly film. No drama. No diva. …She was great and we would be lucky to have her in S2,” he explains.
