I'll see your Sharktopus and raise you a Sharkopotamus.  Maybe

James Hibberd reports that Syfy will be launching  a  "B Movie Mogul" web site that will give fans input in the development of a Saturday night movie on Syfy.  Fans can pitch ideas, costumes, titles (Sharkopotamus, duh!) dialog and more and then vote on them.   Syfy is teaming up with IGN  on the site which will launch this Friday and the contest will last 15 months.

The first stage of the contest will be voting on one of three concepts: "a 2010 apocalypse story, a Bermuda Triangle-set creature feature or a Roswell, N.M.-set alien movie," according to Hibberd.
