American TV channel Syfy has signed a deal with THQ to produce a two-hour TV movie based on Red Faction, which will also serve as a "backdoor pilot".
A backdoor pilot (don't be childish) is a pilot programme suitable for broadcast whether it gets picked up for a series or not. In other words, Red Faction could end up becoming a TV series.
Not content with all that, the next version of Red Faction - due out before April 2011 - will be produced in conjunction with Syfy.
Check out our Red Faction: Guerrilla review to remind yourself why it might make a good TV show.
THQ has previously signed a deal with Syfy to produce TV content based on the rather lovely de Blob series.
