Finnish director Timo Vuorensola has taken to Indiegogo to fund an additional scene in forthcoming sequel Iron Sky The Coming Race.

The film’s team reveals that in this unique scene, “the reptilian shape-shifter Margaret Thatcher falls from her dinosaur-drawn chariot and is crushed to death when a sun rolls over her.”

The scene was shot during production but the effects budget was used to work on other scenes. But now Vuorensola hopes his audience can help via crowdfunding.

10 February 2016 2:28 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Just over 2 years ago, we featured the crowdfunding campaign for the sequel to the 2012 cult sci-fi film, "Iron Sky," directed by Timo Vuorensola, which ended successfully, blowing past its goal of $150,000. But that figure was just a fraction - about 1% of what was to be a $15+ million project. The $150,000+ was used to produce: a full script for the film, a clear production plan including a budget, and a four to five minute promo reel to help with further funding, says the campaign page. The film, titled "Iron Sky: The Coming Race," is now apparently close to completion, as the filmmakers have announced an early rough cut »
