Red Faction TV Movie Planned

As the relationship between cable television network Syfy (formerly Sci Fi Channel) and video game publisher THQ continues to blossom, Syfy has revealed plans to bring another of THQ's video game franchises to television in the form of Red Faction.


The explosive video games, set amidst the volatile political landscape of Mars, are to be transformed into a two-hour movie that will air on Syfy. According to Broadcasting & Cable, the movie will also serve as a pilot for a potential television series.

The third entry in the video game series, Red Faction: Guerrilla, was released on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2009. A fourth is currently in the works, "produced in conjunction with Syfy Games" and due out no later than March 31, 2011.
