THQ and American television network Syfy have announced that a two hour Red Faction live action movie pilot will air in March 2011.

Dubbed Red Faction: Origins, this follows Alec Mason's son Jake as he tries to find his kidnapped sister and avenge the death of his murdered mother.

Events take place 25 years after Red Faction: Guerrilla and before the sequel, Red Faction: Armageddon.

Writer Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13, Fringe, Vampire Diaries and Boston Legal) handled the screenplay, adapting a story by Paul DeMeo (The Rocketeer, Flash, Viper, The Sentinel).

Presumably if the pilot does well then we could see an entire series. Or perhaps a feature film.

Red Faction: Armageddon will be released in March 2011. Look, down there: a video!
