Sydney Spies gets Syfy movie deal out of racy yearbook photo

sydney-spies-yearbook-photo-syfy.jpgSydney Spies, the Durango, Colo., teenager who claimed her freedom of speech was impinged on when her high school yearbook rejected a racy photo that she wanted to use as her portrait, will appear in an upcoming made-for-Syfy movie, she says on her Facebook page.

"Making a movie for the SyFy channel," she writes. "It's a small role but I'm excited for the opportunity!"

She says she got the opportunity after an appearance on NBC's "Today" show.

"The head of the Syfy network said he wanted me to be in a movie," she tells Denver's WestWord. "So they got hold of me and my mom and flew me out to Louisiana."

Spies will play a sorority girl in the movie, which is tentatively titled either "Final Initiation" or "American Horror House" and co-stars Morgan Fairchild. Spies, however, won't share any details about the movie, including whether or not her character dies.

"All my friends are asking that," she says. "And I'm like, 'I'm sorry! I can't tell you.'"
