Remember this girl? It's Sydney
Spies, the Durango High School graduate whose senior pictures were deemed too sexy for her school's yearbook. While she was still in school, she submitted her photographs to the yearbook staff, who rejected them, claiming they were inappropriate. Spies said that the editors voted 4-1 to include the pictures,
but still sent her a message explaining the situation and asking for alternate pictures. The staff editors used her school I.D. photo instead.
If you were around during that controversy, you may have seen Sydney's interview with the Huffington Post, during which she said, "My plans after I graduate are finishing up my dance with my dance company at the beginning of May and then traveling around the world. I am definitely going to move out of this little town; I was never meant to live in a small town anyway." It seems that Spies is doing exactly what she said she would, and is capitalizing on her controversial fame, because now, she's got a horror movie deal with our favorite science fiction channel, SyFy. She released the statement concerning the deal back in April, but has since released a few more details relating to the film specifically.
The film is either going to be called Final Initiation or American Horror House, both of which sound pretty menacing. Spies has said that she's going to be playing a sorority girl, but can't talk about the details of the film, such as whether or not her character makes it out alive. Instead, she talks about how the whole yearbook controversy has helped her understand disappointment and better look at her acting career. "I'm sure I'm not going to get every role, but I think I'll be prepared – because now, I've experienced disappointment," Spies said. It looks like she's definitely aiming for a big acting career, and what better place to start than SyFy?
SyFy plays lots of science fiction and horror movies, or a combination of the two. One of my personal favorites is Super Shark. IMDB gives a pretty accurate summary of the film: "That's one big ass shark!" It's about this huge shark that can come up onto the shore for short amounts of time, causing chaos and destruction. Of course, I can't tell you how it ends, but it's great! The theme song is absolutely hilarious because it's a seventies-sounding disco tune, the lyrics mainly being, "Super shark, super shark, super shark." You get the idea.
I'm hoping that Spies' film will be a tad more sophisticated than some of SyFy's other stuff; that's not to say SyFy isn't entertaining! There's nothing better than a nerdy sci-fi movie, trust me. I can't get enough of them!
Spies sounds like she's planning on sticking around to act in several movies. I find myself wondering if she'll deviate from horror movies or stay in the same basic genre for a while. I guess we'll just have to see!
