Beach bums, beware: Syfy has cooked up what has to be one of the best premises for an original movie ever devised: There’s a sharktopus. And it’s angry. And it does not approve at all of you bungee jumping over its territory, attractive up-and-coming actresses.

First of all, it’s being produced by Roger Corman, who brought you such similar works as Dinoshark, Supergator, Scorpius Gigantus, Dinocroc, Wolfhound, The Sea Wolf, Carnosaur, Angelfist, Attack of the Crab Monsters, and, of course, Private Duty Nurses. Oh, and over 370 others. Seriously. The guy’s a legend.

The movie is going to star Eric Roberts. Not like, some random actor who happens to be named Eric Roberts, but the actual Eric Roberts from The Dark Knight. Eric Roberts who was nominated for a freakin’ Oscar for Runaway Train is going to be in freakin’ Sharktopus.
