A fan of animal mash-up films? The really, really bad sort? Well you’re in luck, then. Now officially confirmed, and sure-to-be-a-classic, SHARKTOPUS VS MERMANTULA has started moving forward. I’m guessing some uneducated people out there may not be aware what a Mermantula is. For those people, that would be a beastie that is part man, part piranha and part tarantula, obviously.
The official synopsis reads:
“In order to take down Sharktopus, Ray Brady, a former basketball player is injected with a transformation serum that alters his genetic make-up to become part man, part piranha and part tarantula. Though unsuccessful at his first attempt to bring down Sharktopus, Ray injects himself with a growth hormone, increasing his strength tenfold and has a final showdown with Sharktopus in a baseball stadium.”
Sounds like an epic, right? Just to add to the fantastic potential of the plot, Casper Van Dien and Catherin Oxenberg are on board, with Kevin O’Neill set to direct. Before that, I shit you not, O’Neill has to finish post-production on another award-contender in the form of SHARKTOPUS VS PTERACUDA. Again, for the uneducated, a Pteracuda is a pterodactyl and baracuda hybrid.
