When guidos go up against sharks, we're pretty sure that some of those guidos will end up dead in the water, but in the long run, when faced with some tough guys from The Sopranos, Goodfellas and—you guessed it—Jersey Shore itself, we've got a feeling those sharks will end up as little more than chum.

Syfy has just announced the cast and released the first picture for its 2012 original movie, Jersey Shore Shark Attack.

In addition to Jersey Shore's Vinny Guadagnino, the cast also includes Tony Sirico (The Sopranos' Paulie Walnuts), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas' Paul Cicero), Joey Fatone ('N Sync), Jack Scalia (Dallas) and William Atherton (Die Hard).

Here's the TV movie's official plot description:

"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 will air on Syfy next summer ... which ought to make Sharktopus a little nervous!
