Sharknado 5 Star Was Paid Twice as Much as Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot

7 August 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Syfy continued its Sharknado franchise last night with Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, bringing back longtime franchise stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. A new report reveals Ian Ziering not only made a lot more than co-star Tara Reid, but he also earned quite a bit more than Gal Gadot received for Wonder Woman. Ian Ziering reportedly took home a cool $500,000, with Tara Reid earning just a quarter of that salary. Ian Ziering's pay is also nearly twice as much as Gal Gadot's paycheck for headlining the second highest grossing domestic movie of the year, Wonder Woman.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Ian Ziering's $500,000 salary represents roughly 17% of the sequel's $3 million salary, while the $300,000 earned by Gal Gadot on Wonder Woman represents just 0.2% of the movie's $149 million salary. We reported in June that the actress signed a three-picture deal, which she is now re-negotiating to get a much »

Newswire: Sharknado producers pissed off Trump by replacing him with Mark Cuban

2 August 2017 5:27 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Like both of its namesake nouns, the Sharknado franchise is indiscriminate in its appetites, devouring cameos and guest stars with undisguised, buzz-craving hunger. These range from the relatively benign—hey there, Steve Guttenberg—to the absolutely disastrous (like when the franchise had to race to chop Jared Fogle out of the third movie, shortly after he was arrested on child pornography charges). Today, The Hollywood Reporter has an in-depth look at the show’s ravenous casting process, including the revelation that franchise star Tara Reid gets paid roughly a quarter of what Ian Ziering gets, and the intricacies of producers’ failed attempt to get Donald Trump on board to play the series’ fictional president.

The Reid pay disparity apparently dates back to the first movie, when the film’s creative team had to throw a bunch of money at Ziering to sign on to star. (It was a more innocent »

Surprise! Trump Was Asked to Play the President in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! But Turned It Down to Run for Office

2 August 2017 11:09 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Donald Trump‘s first six months in office have been far from smooth sailing – and that’s without any interference from a terrifying, shark-spitting storm.

Long before he became the real commander in chief, Trump nearly took on a fictional version of the gig for 2015 film Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

After two successful installments of the ridiculous – yet popular – SyFy franchise, producers approached former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin to play the president in the film series’ third iteration, the outlet reported.

But, negotiations fell through, so Sharknado star – and »

Tara Reid Gets Paid a Quarter of What Her Sharknado Costar Ian Ziering Earns on Each Installment: Report

2 August 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Since its first installment premiered on July 11, 2013, the Sharknado franchise has become practically invaluable to Syfy — but while the budget for each film has gotten bigger, the wage gap between female lead Tara Reid and her male costar Ian Ziering has reportedly remained the same.

This week’s issue of The Hollywood Reporter features an inside look at the surprise hit franchise in which it’s claimed that Reid — who starred in all four installments as well as the upcoming fifth, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming — makes about a quarter of what Ziering earns on each installment.

For Sharknado 5, THR reports that the budget was $3 million, »

Donald Trump Was Set to Play Potus on ‘Sharknado 3’ Two Years Before He Actually Became President

2 August 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump was in “serious talks” to play the President of the United States in 2015’s “Sharkado 3: Oh Hell No!” — two years before the real estate mogul actually became POTUS.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sarah Palin was the producers’ first choice to play the leader of the free world, but those negotiations fell through. That’s when “Sharknado” star Ian Ziering proposed getting the Donald to play the part after he formed a relationship with Trump while filming “Celebrity Apprentice.”

The future president said yes, and was “thrilled to be asked.” »

Tara Reid has had her fair share of head-turning red carpet moments, but her latest look might just top them all.

The 41-year-old American Pie alum turned heads on Thursday, showing off her slim figure on the red carpet at the Art with a Cause event in Los Angeles in a transparent, chainmail mini dress.

Her bra nowhere to be found, Reid instead wore tan pasties and a matching thong to cover up. She was all smiles in the sleeveless gown — which she accessorized with a few bracelets and a silver watch.
