Project Casting

Sharknado 3 open casting call for extras in Orlando, Florida.

Heather Heinz Casting is currently looking for actors, models, and talent to work on the upcoming sequel in the Sharknado franchise.

According to Orlando Weekly, Sharknado 3 will film in Orlando, Florida for the next couple of weeks.

The original Sharknado descended on Los Angeles last year, followed by Sharknado 2: The Second One‘s attack on New York City this summer. You guys? We have some bad news for you: Next year, Sharknado 3  is coming to Florida.

The terror starts in our nation’s capital, as the airborne, sharp-toothed fish make their way down the east coast (which Syfy is calling the “Feast Coast”), with the grand finale landing right here in Orlando, Florida. “The entire Eastern seaboard will be devoured by flying sharks, ” says Syfy in a statement on their website.

Casting directors are looking for extras to appear in the upcoming feature film. Filming will take place on Monday, February 16th until February 24th.
