"Can't watch #Sharknado because I'm on the set of my new film Tsunamwolf," tweets "Modern Family" writer/exec producer Danny Zuker.

The movie's title is currently the top trending topic on Twitter. Star Tara Reid and Syfy also are among the top 10 trends on the social media site.

The movie centers on -- you guessed it -- a tornado filled with sharks. Whatever the reason for the abnormal weather conditions, the sharks begin pummeling Los Angeles and attacking its residents.

In the movie, Reid and Ian Ziering play ex-spouses. He's a bar owner who sets out to save his ex-wife and their kids once the storm hits.
