Fans are constantly emailing Syfy with complaints, questions and compliments about its movies, and so the network has come up with a new way for directing those ideas from viewers: let them create their own Saturday night creature-feature, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Fans will be able to pitch ideas and vote on the film’s choices, ranging from dialogue to wardrobe and how the characters die, the report says.
The network is creating a production site called B Movie Mogul to help create the script, which will result in a two-hour movie to air next year. The first step is getting fans to vote on which of three concepts to focus on: an apocalypse tale, a Bermuda Triangle story, or a Roswell, New Mexico-based alien feature, the report says.
"This is where entertainment is going and just the start of many more things of this nature for Syfy," says Thomas Vitale, executive vice president of programming and original movies at the network.
