Cannes: ‘Iron Sky’ Sequel in the Works

The Finnish filmmakers again will target crowd-funding sources for their new Nazi on the Moon movie.

The Finnish filmmakers behind Iron Sky are planning a sequel to the Nazis on the Moon film: Iron Sky The Coming Race. Similar to the first film, the producers will use crowd funding to kick off financing Iron Sky 2, launching the project on Indiegogo.

For the pitch to prospective investors, Iron Sky director Timo Vuorensola has made a spoof hostage video in which he sits in front of a North Korean flag, and flanked by two women armed with machine guns, apologizes for making the original film.

Producer Tero Kaukomaa hopes to raise $150,000 for Iron Sky 2 via crowd funding, or a tenth of the film’s planned $15 million budget, with the remainder coming from soft money, presales and other independent sources.
On the indiegogo site, the producers say they are working on a script and expect to deliver the first draft by the end of the year and to shoot a promo for the movie to be ready for Cannes next year. Principle photography on Iron Sky The Coming Race is planned for 2015.
The original Iron Sky feature, which raised more than $1 million via crowd funding, sold well internationally but was a weak box office performer. Despite strong bows in Germany and Finland, the $10 million film grossed just over $8 million theatrically including a paltry $122,000 domestic take for U.S. distributor eONe, according to figures on boxofficemojo.com.

The game will follow the pulp fiction plot of the film, in which a colony of Nazis living on the dark side of the moon begin an invasion of the earth. Players will act as a space pilot in the intergalactic battle, joining forces with either the Nazi invaders or earth’s defense force. The Polish studio Reality Pump will develop the game for Topware. Samuli Torssonen, visual effects supervisor on the film, will provide visual effects for the game through his Helsinki-based Troll studio.
Iron Sky Invasion will be available for Mac, PC, XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 and Topware said it plans to release both a standard edition for around €40 – €50 ($50 – $62) and a special “Gotterdammerung” edition for between €60 – €70 ($74 – $86).

The film Iron Sky, which raised around $1 million towards its $10 million budget from its Internet fan base, has earned some $8 million in theatrical release internationally so far. Entertainment One picked up North American rights to the film, which stars Udo Kier, Julia Dietze, Peta Sergeant, Christopher Kirby and Gotz Otto and opened Iron Sky on a platform release July 25, earning some $26,000 from four theaters. E1 has also made Iron Sky, available on the action web platform Tugg that allows moviegoers to choose the films that play in their local theaters.
