Syfy is best known for their science fiction TV series like Battlestar Galactica and Caprica, as well as their unexplained phenomena shows like Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth. They’re also known for some of the (intentionally) worst TV movies you’ll ever lay eyes on, like Sharktopus and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

Now comes word that Syfy, who belongs to NBC Universal, will be teaming up with Universal Pictures to step into the realms of feature films with their new venture, Syfy Films. The plan is to produce one or two new movies each year with small to moderate budgets ranging from $5 million to $25 million.

Movies produced will not be restricted to just science fiction, either; other genres including fantasy, horror, and supernatural are all expected to see some love when things get going. The first of the new Syfy Films/Universal Pictures joint venture projects is expected some time in the year 2012.

For those of you thinking “Hey, Universal was the studio that released Serenity! Will this mean more?!” The answer is no; no it will not. At the moment, the only goal is to make brand new titles and potential franchises, so comebacks seem highly unlikely. Besides, we all know that a return of Firefly on TV or maybe even direct-to-DVD movies would be the best bet, not major releases…though the lower budgets would be

This also means that Syfy Films will not be involved in the announced Universal Battlestar Galactica movie, which we found out in August of 2009 that Bryan Singer was developing with a chance of also directing.
