Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has been confirmed among the cast of the fourth Sharknado movie, to be screened in July.

Sharknado: The 4th Awakens follows last year’s Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! and features returning stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and David Hasselhoff.

Taylor will play a Shark World hotel security guard in the film, set five years after the previous instalment. He previously performed a voice role in Doctor Who and had a part in 2015 horror movie Fear Clinic.

Taylor tells Loudwire: “I shot a weird cameo for Sharknado 4 which is awesome. The thing is, I don’t get eaten by a shark. That’s all I can tell you about it.”

He adds: “I would love to do more acting. In fact, if anyone’s listening, I would love to audition for your weird indie horror movie. I’ll be zombie number six – and I’ll bring my own lunch.”

Sharknado 4 will first appear on the Syfy network on July 31.

Meanwhile, former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison is set to make a “special announcement” related to his musical work this week.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
