It’s guidos vs. sharks!

Syfy has landed an all-star cast for its 2012 creature feature, Jersey Shore Shark Attack.

Ready for the list? EW has learned that Syfy cast Tony Sirico (Paulie Walnuts on The Sopranos), Paul Sorvino (Paul Cicero in Goodfellas), Jack Scalia (Dallas), Joey Fatone (‘N Sync) and William Atherton (Die Hard). Of course the cast wouldn’t be complete without some chum from MTV’s Jersey Shore — the film also stars Vinny Guadagnino.

The first photo showing some of the cast and the movie’s story description is below:


With a name like Jersey Shore Shark Attack, everything you need to know is in the title. But here’s a plot description anyway:

Jersey Shore Shark Attack unfolds during the July Fourth weekend at – where else? — the Jersey Shore, where rare swarms of sharks are converging due to illegal underwater drilling. Now the angry sharks are on a rampage, devouring residents, and leaving it up to the locals to try and save the day.

Sirico is Captain Sallie, the wise veteran of boardwalk life and lore. Scalia is Moretti, former Guido beach bum and now police chief.  Sorvino portrays the possibly corrupt Mayor and Atherton is the greedy developer Dolan, who wants to tear down the boardwalk to build a luxury resort where the Guidos will not be welcome. Vinny Guadagnino plays the on-scene reporter Conte and Joey Fatone appears as himself.”

Jersey Shore Shark Attack is from Hybrid Entertainment and will air on Syfy next summer.
