[MISP] B Movie Mogul w/ Syfy and IGN

Hey...

There's a lot of intense movie-making coming up locally w/ the 48 Hour Film Project and the highly anticipated return of the Duke City Shootout.

This doesn't have much to do with those, but...  IGN.com is working with Syfy and their fans to develop and make a movie, and one of the initial choices is something based on the Roswell incident in 1947.  I don't know that they'd actually shoot it here, but... helping them choose Roswell as their location couldn't hurt.

IGN Readers: Want to Help Make a Syfy Movie?

This is your chance to create the next legendary B Movie!

June 22, 2010

IGN is partnering with Syfy for an upcoming Saturday Original Movie – and giving you the chance to help build the movie from start to finish.

Beginning Friday, you'll have the chance to vote on the basic set up for the story, from the following three science fiction starting points.

  • Bermuda Triangle: When the President's plane goes down in the Bermuda Triangle, a rescue force discovers that the cause of unexplained disappearances is not an electromagnetic force or weather anomalies – it's a monstrous alien creature.

  • Roswell: In 1947, something crash-landed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. Pieces of the strange craft were found, photographed and quickly confiscated by the U.S. government – but no one ever talks about the living creature that was recovered from the site.

  • 2012: On December 21st in the last year of the Mayan calendar, something thought long dead rises to live again – and that means trouble for civilization.
