Micky DolenzIt's shaping up to be my most anticipated movie of next year! Already, we heard from our own Mike Moody that pop singer turned actress Tiffany would be joining pop singer turned actress Debbie Deborah Gibson in the upcoming Syfy movie Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. The promise of a physical brawl between the two former teen sensations -- as an "overzealous park ranger" and a "fanatical animal-rights activist," respectively -- sounded too good to be true. The "sneak peak" at Syfy shows it's everything you'd hope it would be: faces get slapped, bodies roll around in the grass, and dresses get wet.

But add a Monkee to the mix and you have (potentially) an instant classic. Micky Dolenz, drummer for manufactured pop group The Monkees back in the 60s, will play an unspecified role in Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, according to Third Age. If Syfy can only find a way to squeeze Micky's daughter Ami Dolenz, star of the immortal She's Out of Control (and 2012 Doomsday), into the picture, all my dreams would come true.

On a serious (?!) note, veteran director Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary) is at the helm of the project, which is currently underway in Los Angeles. And the previous entry in the series, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, delivered the low-budget, cheesy goods. So that's another reason to tune in when the Syfy original airs sometime next year.
