Movies: After our Tigeropotomus project fell through . . .

Karen O'Hara, Syfy Channel's director of original movies, just dropped this tweet earlier this week:

Just got off the phone with the legendary Roger Corman who's doing a new movie for us this year. Yes, it's the long-rumored SHARKTOPUS! . . . Spent half an hour discussing what a sharktopus should look like, how many mouths it should have and how it should kill.

This shocks the hell out of me. I find it hard to believe that a whole 30 minutes of conceptual planning would ever go into a Syfy Original Movie.

Thanks to Dave for calling this to my attention.

that's easy. the sharktopus should have just enough mouths to bite everyone's head off that thinks this is a good idea. all the head's need to be biten off at the same exact time though.

i haven't watched a Sci fi channel original since Manquito.
