We realize you're not in the habit of watching made-for-TV giant monster movies, but you really need to make an exception for this one. Tiffany, the '80s mall goddess who crooned "I Think We're Alone Now," is set to star opposite her one-time rival Debbie Gibson in the upcoming Syfy original movie Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. Yes, for real. According to the Hollywood Reporter, "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," while "Tiffany will play an overzealous park ranger who uses dangerous methods to save endangered alligators." The film will end in an epic swamp battle between gators, pythons, and '80s teen pop stars.
And it was Tiffany's idea! The singer, who appeared in the recent Syfy original Mega Piranha, told execs that she'd always wanted to work with Gibson. When the network approached Gibson, she also "loved the idea of taking this perceived rivalry and having some fun with it."
We think it's pretty much the best idea ever. In fact, we dream of the day when all rival musicians can put aside their differences and fight to the death in made-for-TV movies. How about The Backstreet Boys and N'Sync in Mutant Pandas vs. Killer Koalas? Or Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears in Martian Slime Queen vs. Uranian Goo Princess? Come on, Syfy Channel -- only you can make our dream a reality.
Who's your bet to win the battle: Debbie Gibson or Tiffany? Chime in below!
