The fifth of the ultra-campy Sharknado movies (subtitle: Global Swarming) debuted on the Syfy Channel last week, including a blood-red carpet premiere event at the Linq with stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens, which took place partially in Vegas, also premiered here. But now the union of these two unsubtle entertainment institutions will become official as the film series’ producers, the Asylum, are teaming with Caesars Entertainment, Bernie Yuman and others to create Sharknado Live, a musical and multi-sensory experience that plans to put the Strip in the middle of a permanent sharknado. (Venue and opening are TBA.) Are you ready?
