THQ has announced Red Faction: Origins, a two-hour live-action movie pilot that is set to air on the SyFy channel in March 2011. Penned by Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13, Fringe, and Boston Legal) and based on a story developed by Paul DeMeo (The Rocketeer, Flash), the tentatively titled Origins will bridge the gap between 2009’s Guerrilla and 2011’s Armageddon.
Twenty-five years have passed since Alec Mason led the Martian Colonies to freedom…and ten years since vengeful enemies killed his wife, kidnapped his daughter Lyra, and left a broken hero in their wake.
Jake Mason, Alec’s last surviving son and a ranger in the Red Faction Militia, had never abandoned hope that somewhere in the raw outlands of Mars, his sister was still alive. Now, just as a powerful new enemy swarms across the planet, he’s found her, only to learn that his long lost sister is one of them…a cold-blooded soldier sworn to destroy the Red Faction and conquer the planet in the name of a madman.
Jake must now battle the relentless regime and somehow reunite a family torn apart by war.
