What happens when you take some of the minds attached to Caprica, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Universe and Torchwood and place them in the world based on the popular game franchise Red Faction? Pure amazement.
Introducing the brand new Syfy film Red Faction: Origins. For those diehards out there, this story takes place between Red Faction: Guerrilla and the upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon games. Here’s the premise.
Twenty-five years have passed since Alec Mason (Robert Patrick) led the Martian Colonies to freedom …and 12 years since vengeful enemies killed his wife, kidnapped his daughter Lyra (Tamzin Merchant), and left a broken hero in their wake.
Jake Mason (Brian J. Smith), Alec’s last surviving son and an officer in the Red Faction Militia, has his world turned inside out when he discovers that now, 12 years after her kidnapping, his sister is still alive. As a powerful new enemy swarms across the planet, Jake goes out to find her, only to learn that his lost sister is one of them…a cold-blooded soldier sworn to destroy the Red Faction.
Jake must now battle the relentless regime and somehow reunite a family torn apart by war. Kate Vernon portrays The Matriarch, leader of the tribal Marauders sect.
Directed by Peabody-Award winner Michael Nankin (Caprica, Battlestar Galactica, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), the film is set to make its premiere on Saturday, June 4th at 9pm ET/PT.
