CNN.com is reporting, according to Variety, that the Sci-Fi Channel will be getting the 4-hour Firestarter: The Next Chapter from Stephen King, following the main character from Firestarter 20 years later; Saint Sinner from Clive Barker, a TV movie about a 19th-century monk in modern-day Los Angeles hunting down two “buxom” female demons; and Taken, a 20-hour miniseries from Stephen Spielberg about three extended families over the course of 50 years after an alien abduction.

At the same time, it seems the Monday Prime lineup will move to Saturdays, with The Invisible Man moving back to Friday Prime to join Farscape and The Outer Limits, while Black Scorpion and The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne will try to find much-needed ratings on Saturday.
