Red Faction movie release date confirmed

'Origins' will hit Syfy next year

THQ's released more information on the Red Faction film that was revealed back in April.

The two hour live-action adaptation of the Red Faction video game franchise will air on the Syfy channel in March 2011.

It will boast a screenplay written by notable writer and producer Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13, Fringe, Vampire Diaries and Boston Legal), based on a story developed by Paul DeMeo (The Rocketeer, Flash, Viper, The Sentinel).

Mark Stern, executive vice president of programming at Syfy and co-head of universal cable production said, "This groundbreaking deal with THQ reflects our desire to deliver a completely immersive and enhanced viewing experience for the audience."

"We are excited to be working with the creative team at THQ in extending the vibrant world of Red Faction to our air."

"THQ is blazing a new trail in the gaming industry with our partnership with Syfy by introducing the Red Faction franchise to a new and broader audience," said THQ's Danny Bilson.

"This unique transmedia collaboration is one of many strategic initiatives in place to dramatically increase awareness for Red Faction Armageddon and extend the Red Faction brand across a wide variety of entertainment channels."

More details on the film were released a few months ago and it's sounding good to us. We'll take all the Red Faction we can get.
