New Musical Aims To Put the "Great White" in The Great White Way–and Vice Versa

News   New Musical Aims To Put the "Great White" in The Great White Way–and Vice Versa
Forget about Sweeney Todd. Broadway's new man-eating champs could be the carnivorous sea monsters of "Sharknado," according to a report in the New York Daily News.

Thunder Levin, the writer of the surprise hit cheese-o-rama TV movie "Sharknado" and its two sequels now says he'd like to see the series adapted as a Broadway musical.

The unlikely 2013 Syfy channel film about a waterspout that gathers up a massive school of sharks and dumps them on the unwittingly tasty population of Los Angeles, reportedly told Confidenti@l, “I think it would be hilarious to do Sharknado: The Musical... I’ve been proposing that since the first one became a hit on the first night. They could get some Broadway musical guys to write the songs and the music, but you’ve got to let me write the script. We could call it Sharknado: The Great White Way.

Furthermore, Levin said the sequel, “Sharknado 2: The Second One” originally was conceived to be Broadway-themed.

“When we were first throwing around the titles for the second one, one of the ones I suggested was ‘Sharknado 2: Live on Broadway,’ because we knew it was going to be shot in New York,” he reportedly said. “So I could definitely see it as a musical.”

In the interview he mentioned no active plans to bring the series to the stage. A third film in the franchise, “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!,” will bow on the Syfy channel July 22.
