Based on the RED FACTION “first-person shooter” series of video games by THQ and Volition, RED FACTION: ORIGINS has made the jump to live action as a two hour film, as a potential back-door pilot for a TV series.
“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.”
