We found a fun, short interview with “Sharknado” writer Thunder Levin by Nell Minow, who’s also known as the Movie Mom on beliefnet.com. She spoke to Levin recently at Comic-Con. Here’s a brief excerpt:
NELL MINOW: What else are you working on?
THUNDER LEVIN: I’ve created an original TV series called “Dive,” which is Sharknado-esque in tone, and I’m working on getting financing for an independent feature called “An Ordinary Hero.” And I’m writing an novel, quite a change of pace from “Sharknado,” a very dark thriller. I’ve never tackled that medium before. I wrote a script that ended up being a trilogy, so I thought, “If I can do this, maybe I can write a novel.”
MINOW: And “Thunder” is your real name, right? Where does that come from?
LEVIN: It was the ’60s!
