SyFy channel to produce Red Faction film

0

Earlier this month, Danny Bilson of THQ mentioned in an interview that Red Faction would be getting a film treatment. Today, we get an announcement which would verify said claim. THQ and the SyFy channel announced a new deal today in which the Martian revolution will be televised, as in made into a feature-length television special. In addition to its status as a TV movie, the program will also serve as a backdoor pilot for a possible series.

The pairing will also be working on adapting some of SyFy's properties as videogames. At present, THQ is hard at work on adaptations of Ghost Hunters for DS, iPhone and iPad.

A Red Faction feature could be decent. There's certainly plenty of opportunity for a gritty, action-drama in the setting. And, I have to say, I'm often surprised by SyFy's original content, especially their series. If they can produce something half as impressive as Battlestar Galactica, we're in pretty good shape.
