Shark + Octopus + Corman = Daikaiju?

Earlier today, io9.com reported that the SyFy Channel has apparently greenlit the film Sharktopus. The movie will be directed by Roger Corman, who- waitaminute... Corman? Wasn’t he working on a production called Dinoshark? Has that been finished yet? Does this mean we’re eventually going to see a Sharktopus vs Dinoshark film (following the pattern set by the upcoming Dinocroc vs Supergator)?


Admittedly, Sharktopus is not much more than a title and a vague idea at this point in time, according to io9 article. The picture at the head of this post is some concept art by a fellow named Matt Leach but it may not represent the final design of the creature or even how big it will be, for that matter; it’s entirely possible that the monster might end up being human-ish sized. That would be a shame.


And to Karen O’Hara, director of the SyFy Channel’s original movies- if you’re willing to produce a movie about a half-shark, half-octopus beastie, might I perhaps interest you in a little idea called Dinobear? Half-bear, half-dinosaur... just throwing it out there...

Generally I'm a sucker for any sort of water monster film. But I think the SyFy channel has gone to the well once too often with that theme. If OctoShark ever got made I would probably pass on watching it.
