Syfy and THQ have begun production on the two-hour Red Factions; Origins television movie, with stars from Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood, Stargate Universe and everyone’s favourite liquid metal Terminator joining the cast.
Volition, the studio behind Saints Row and Red Faction Armageddon, is entering a new space. The Illinois-based developer is currently collaborating on a “new action role-playing game” with “a high-powered creative talent in the entertainment industry”. Who could that be?
THQ’s plans for a Red Faction movie may be just the beginning for the Martian sci-fi smash ’em up. The SyFy network-produced made for TV movie may eventually become its own ongoing series.
