Syfy has formally confirmed a fifth “Sharknado” film, and it will have an international slant.

“SHARKNADO 5, which sees the deadly weather phenomenon of shark-infested storms bombard cities around the world, will film in more than 5 countries, including the UK and Australia,” says Syfy.

Anthony C. Ferrante, who directed the first four “Sharknado” films, will helm the fifth installment. Scotty Mullen wrote the script.

Franchise stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reprise their respective roles as Fin Shepard and April Wexler. Original cast member Cassie Scerbo will also be back as Nova, “a bartender turned badass Sharknado fighter.”

Principal photography began Thursday. An airdate has not yet been confirmed.
