No relation to the awful Mothman Prophecies movie (if you ever read the book, then you know why I just described the film as awful; and if you have never read the book, you should and then you, too, will realize why the film was so lame), Syfy has finally checked off enough other cryptids from its list to make a new film about the Mothman starring a “Firefly”.
Not much is known about the plot of this Syfy-bound Mothman movie simply titled Mothman other than the glowy-eyed cryptozoological entity in this version also kills people, which I guess is a major step up from crank calling people in that terrible Richard Gere movie. Don’t expect this one to adhere too closely to the facts of case either.
Sheldon Wilson (Shallow Ground, Screamers: The Hunting) is wrapping up post-production on this RHI Entertainment entry starring Jewel Staite of “Firefly” and “Stargate: Atlantis”. Wilson also shares a writing credit alongside “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” writers Sonny Lee and Patrick Walsh.
Bloody Disgusting got the first hold of an American Film Market sales flyer for the RHI production, and it sure is awfully fancy for artwork promoting a Syfy flick. Unless the idea is to fool buyers into thinking their Mothman is in some way a follow-up to The Mothman Prophecies, in which case, bravo.
