UPDATE: We’re told SyFy is casting yet ANOTHER pop-star to cameo in the film, possibly to set up another big cross-over. Syfy has cast 1980s pop-star rivals Debbie Gibson and Tiffany in one of the network’s signature Saturday night original movies. The network promises an epic battle between the former teen pop stars, who will co-star in Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, which will be helmed by Pet Sematary director Mary Lambert. From a screenplay by Naomi Selfman (Evil Eyes), Gibson will play a fanatical animal-rights activist who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades, where they grow to mega sizes. Tiffany will play an overzealous park ranger who uses dangerous methods to save endangered alligators. In the script, the pair brawl at a party, then take matters outside into the swamp. Both singers previously have been cast in Syfy originals but never have appeared together. “They loved the idea of taking this perceived rivalry and having some fun with it,” Executive vp programming and original movies Thomas Vitale said. The project will begin shooting this month and air next year.
