Tiffany and Debbie Gibson were rival pop stars in the 1980s, but they never took it as far as unleashing giant monsters on each other. Until now. Syfy is bringing them together in Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid. No, seriously.
Let's hope it brings a sequence as bizarre as the above clip, where Gibson has a weird sexual dream that teachers how to defeat Mega Shark and Giant Octopus.
Here's the press release. Are you excited yet?
1980s pop singing sensations Debbie Gibson and Tiffany will bury their pop princess rivalry to co-star in the new ripped-from-the-headlines Syfy Saturday Original Movie, Mega Python Vs Gatoroid, which will go into production later this month for a scheduled 2011 release.
In Mega Python Vs Gatoroid, there's a crisis in the Florida Everglades as giant pythons are threatening the alligator population. Gibson portrays a fanatical animal rights advocate who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades where the pythons become mega-sized.
Tiffany plays an over-zealous park ranger worried about the growing ecological damage. To save her beloved alligators, she employs dangerous methods, setting off a war between the species – and putting her on a collision course with Gibson.
Said Debbie Gibson: "I know that pop culture fanatics have been dying for Tiffany and me to collaborate for the past 24 years! What better way to do it than by battling each other in a campy romp through the Everglades?"
Said Tiffany: "Only in my dreams have I been able to have a catfight with Debbie Gibson...until now! This is soo MEGA Cool!"
In their most recent Syfy roles, Tiffany starred in Mega Piranha, while Gibson starred in Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus.
Mega Python Vs Gatoroid is a production of The Asylum. Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary) is director – the first time a woman has directed a Syfy Saturday Original Movie. Writer is Naomi Selfman (Evil Eyes).
