Iron Sky Director To Kill Adolf Hitler
Iron Sky has quickly become everyone’s favorite Nazis-from-space movie of the year. As you might expect, with such success director Timo Vuorensola has a lot of options in front of him. And he is going to take every opportunity at his disposal to make science fiction movies about Nazis. Vuorensola has plans for a three episode miniseries that will show the Nazis getting to the moon, and there will also be a proper Iron Sky sequel.
That alone is a lot of sci-fi Nazis, but Vuorensola’s isn’t stopping there, oh no. Next year, in 2013, he’s set to start in on an adaptation of the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler by Norwegian cartoonist Jason.
I Killed Adolf Hitler is a time travel comedy set in a world where brutal hit men are hired to rub out whoever the hell you want: annoying neighbors, some dick at work, that ex who cheated on you, anyone you want gone. One guy gets hired to go back in time to 1939 and kill Hitler, but things go “spectacularly wrong.” How wrong is spectacularly wrong, you ask? Pretty damn wrong. Instead of killing ol’ Adolf, Hitler handles his business and sends himself to the present. All the hired gun can do is sit on his ass and wait for the years to drag by. When he finally arrives at his past in the future, he reunites with his inappropriately young girlfriend to track down the most famous fascist in history.
That sounds amazing. I can’t wait.
