Producers of TV movie phenomenon “Sharknado” have launched an online crowd-funding campaign to raise money for a bonus scene in the upcoming sequel.

Last year, the disaster film about a freak hurricane which dumps deadly sharks on the streets of Los Angeles became an unlikely hit, prompting network bosses to order a follow-up movie, due to air this summer.

While most of the filming has been completed, producers behind ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One’ are giving eager fans a chance to see an additional scene, consisting of “sharks, chainsaws, and chainsaws being used in the vicinity of sharks”, if they reach their goal of $50,000.

Producers launched the campaign on crowdfunding site Indiegogo.com, and donors can receive rewards such as video diaries from the set and contents of the scene in advance.

Backers who donate $5,000 can win a walk-on role, and those who give $120 can have their voice mixed into the background of the film.

The sequel, which stars returning cast members Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, will air on July 30.
