'Sharknado 3' gets a subtitle -- 'Oh Hell No!' -- and a premiere date

'Sharknado 3' has gained the subtitle 'Oh Hell No!'

If nothing else, whoever comes up with the secondary titles for Syfy's "Sharknado" movies is having a good time. The subtitle for the third film in the surprising hit series is "Oh Hell No!" This follows "Sharknado 2: The Second One."

The third installment of the sharks-flying-through-the-air franchise starring Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will debut on Syfy on July 22.

Two years ago, the first "Sharknado" became a surprise social media sensation when it generated thousands of tweets by celebrities and regular people alike who spontaneously decided to live-tweet it. The second one debuted last summer and became Syfy's highest-rated original movie ever.

Hopes are high for the third film, which takes the shark threat to Washington, D.C., and down the East Coast to Florida.

Bo Derek and David Hasselhoff are featured in supporting roles, as well as Mark Cuban in a cameo as the president of the United States and Ann Coulter as the vice president. Other cameos include Jerry Springer, Michele Bachmann, Chris Kirkpatrick from 'N Sync and Chris Jericho.

The production, however, is in a labor dispute. Non-union crew members seeking an IATSE contract went on strike March 3, according to Deadline. Union officials and the film's producers have been exchanging accusations via the media.
