You should always be able to do something like this:
#!/usr/bin/runfileAsHSFile "$@"
module Main where

---- runfileAsHSFile ----
# run a file by creating a virtual hs file (fifo file pipe)
fileToRun=$1; shift;
f=tempfile -s .hs
mkfifo $f
sed -e '1d' $fileToRun > $f & # remove the first shabeng line using
runhaskell $f
rm $f

This is written from scratch but should work without much changes..

But there might be much better solutions.
