THQ And Syfy Team For Red Faction Movie, Could Lead To TV Series

Red Faction: Guerrilla Shipped One Million Copies, Sequel Discussed

The SyFy network has wrapped up a deal with publisher THQ to bring the publisher’s Red Faction franchise to the small screen in the form of a two-hour movie that could also serve as a “back-door pilot” for a potential television series as well.

“It is the kind of content that fits our genre,” senior VP of SyFy ventures recently told Broadcasting & Cable. “It is a great fit for a big Syfy Saturday movie, and if it really works, it is a great back-door pilot.”

Details about the movie are nonexistent at this point, which isn’t that surprising since, as a senior THQ executive told me this morning, THQ didn’t want to reveal the Red Faction movie deal just yet. Why news of the deal was released prematurely isn’t known, but expect to hear plenty more about the project soon.

The Red Faction marks the second major video game inspired cross-media effort between Syfy and THQ to be announced over the past few months. Back in February, it was revealed that the companies were developing an animated TV series based on THQ’s de Blob as part of Syfy’s new Syfy Kids brand.

In addition, THQ will also be developing games based on Syfy shows going forward, starting with Ghost Hunters Academy for Nintendo DS, iPhone and iPad.
