The latest installment of “Sharknado” will officially be known as “Sharknado 5: Global Swarming,” with the tagline, “Make America Bait Again.” Both are a result of a fan-sourced initiative where Syfy invited Facebook users to submit ideas. The latest plot follows Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and his bionic wife, April (Tara Reid) as their young son gets trapped in a traveling tornado and is transported all over the world.

Ferrante and based on an original screenplay by Scotty Mullen.
