Look out Manhattan ... THE FLYING SHARKS ARE COMING TO THE EAST COAST!!!!!

Syfy has officially greenlit a sequel to "Sharknado" -- the Ian Ziering/Tara Reid flick about sharks invading Los Angeles -- only this time, the great whites will touch down in New York City.

One of the honchos at Syfy released a deliciously cheesy statement saying, "Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm – on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel."

"What we can guarantee is that Sharknado 2 will be lots of fun. We’ll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn’t want our fans to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year."

No word if Tara or Ian will be back for the sequel -- but both actors told TMZ they're 100% down to appear ... if they're asked.

They should switch the location to Washington, D.C. If those sharks start eating politicians, everybody will be clapping.

The headline is so badly written. "SHARK'S TO INVADE NYC. Why on earth is there an apostrophe in sharks? - what kind of dumb, illiterate morons do you have working for you at TMZ that they can't even put a simple phrase together correctly?

Looks like Lindsey Lohan may have an acting job in her future: Sharknado Sequel Bait. I hope they give the CGI sharks some Pepto and some mouthwash.

If Ian Ziering isn't available when production starts they can always get C. Thomas Howell...he's in almost every stupid SciFi movie on the SyFy channel.

At least get new director, writer, editor and film crew. Because sharknado was so poorly done it's not even funny.

Call me crazy, but I'm thinking that Lindsay Lohan might barely make the cut to be in this F list movie. Maybe. If she doesn't flip out and do something super crazy on the set in the first few days.

That's good news. I enjoyed SharkNADO. Syfy really hit on something when they realized craptastic can really work if the tilt is just right. I can't remember the last time anything felt like something everyone watched and commented on, like in the old days of 3 or 4 networks.

Too bad it BOMBED in the ratings with a disastrous 0.4 in the demo.
