This is the SyFy film that has nothing to do with the Warren Ellis comic book movie Red starring Bruce Willis.
I mentioned SyFy’s Red a few days ago and now we have this photo of Felicia Day with a gun and it looks as if some kind of creature has just gone bye bye in front of here.
Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business – hunting werewolves. He’s skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him. Red also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (Pontypool).

Felicia Day, star of web videos The Guild and Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, and Dollhouse who also played “Vi” in the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will portray a werewolf-hunting descendant of Little Red Riding Hood in the new Syfy Saturday Original Movie, Red (not to be confused with the adaption of Warren Ellis’ comic book Red starring Bruce Willis or the film from a few years ago called Red starring Brian Cox or Warren Beatty’s Reds or the reimagining of Red Riding Hood in a gothic style heading to the big screen starring Amanda Seyfried).
Scheduled to premiere in 2011, Red is Syfy’s latest re-imagining of classic fairy tales, legends and pop culture characters. The new line of films launched with Beauty and the Beasts: A Dark Tale, which starred Estella Warren, on February 27.
Syfy, one of television’s most prolific producers of original movies, is also developing films around the stories of Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor and Hansel & Gretel, among other projects.
In the action-packed Red, Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business – hunting werewolves. He’s skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him. Red also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen and he was amazing in Pontypool).
In addition to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Felicia is most widely known for her work in web video. She co-starred in Joss Whedon’s Internet musical Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, which was voted the Best Web TV of 2008 by Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly and People Magazine.
Currently she stars in the web series The Guild, which she created, writes and stars in. The Guild was the winner of the YouTube, Yahoo and SXSW Best Web Series Awards for 2008. The series has generated more than 50 million views web-wide. Day also has a hugely popular Twitter following, reaching more than 1.7 million fans.
Here endeth the press release. Day is cool so I imagine this will have some watchable moments and McHattie is always great to watch. We shall see what we shall see.
Any Felicia fans out there looking forward to this?
