Mutant Chronicles Movie on Sci Fi Channel

The Mutant Chronicles movie is coming to the small screen on the Sci Fi Channel (soon to be the SyFy channel). For those who blinked and missed it, Mutant Chronicles premiered in theaters in April 2009 and its already coming to TV.  That’s gotta be one of the shortest turnarounds from big screen to small screen on record for anything other than an independent film.  The hobby game-inspired movie stars Thomas Jane and co-stars Ron Perlman, John Malkovich, and Devon Aoki. Its first Sci Fi showing is Saturday, June 27 at 9 p.m., followed by a planned repeat on Sunday, June 28 at 6:30 p.m.

The movie’s official site (with trailer) is here.

  1. Yup, I was aware of that, I was on Ultra Video on demand. I didn’t consider that particularly unusual because tons of indie films have simultaneous releases on pay per view video on demand and on the big screen or else release on PPV first. Really common on IFC on cable.

    Here, the film is going from the big screen to free on TV in two months. Never heard of that before.

    When do you find out about the Scribe Awards for your novelization, Matt?
