Finnish filmmaker Timo Vuorensola first caught audiences’ attention with his debut feature, the Nazis-in-space flick Iron Sky. That crowd-funded film eventually made it to release where it unfortunately disappointed many critics. That hasn’t deterred Vuorensola from pursuing his movie-making dreams, though – and the director is back with a proof-of-concept video for his newest project. If you’re assuming that means he’s revealed a trailer for I Killed Adolf Hitler, guess again – while we all figured that was Vuorensola’s next project, it turns out we’ve been fooled. Instead of another Nazi movie, Vuorensola is turning to a different graphic novel as inspiration: Jeremiah Harm. Like Iron Sky, Jeremiah Harm will rely heavily on fan...

It was a week ago today that Twitch brought you the first artwork from a proposed new project from Iron Sky helmer Timo Vuorensola. Yes, we knew he was already working on an adaptation of graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler but it turns out the Finn had something else on the boil and today we found out what it is. And, once again, he is turning to a graphic novel for source material.Using a formula much like the one followed by Iron Sky - meaning a heavy crowd funding and fan involvement emphasis - Vuorensola is developing an adaptation of Alan Grant and Keith Giffen's Jeremiah Harm with Tero Kaukomaa (Iron Sky), Arnold Rifkin (A Good Day To Die Hard) and Boom!

What's next for Iron Sky director Timo Vuorensola? Word came out back in May that he was working on an adaptation of time traveling graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler but when we crossed paths at the American Film Market Vuorensola shared that while work on the Hitler script continues - and is looking good - he's also got a second as yet untitled, project on the bubble. And that up above? That's the first piece of concept art to hit the public eye. Looking good ... »
You can’t blame man for loving Nazis. Sorry, did you just say – Lars Von Trier?

After the long slog of gathering funding for, making and promoting space Nazis sci-fi romp Iron Sky, you might think director Timo Vuorensola would have had enough of the World War II goons to last a lifetime. But apparently not! Not only does he have a TV miniseries prequel and cinematic sequel to Sky up his sleeve, but he’s developing a film based on graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler.Created by Jason (the pen name for cartoonist John Arne Sæterøy), the Eisner-winning title is set in a weird, dangerous world where contract killers are in every phone book and can be hired to wipe out annoying people, be they badly behaved relatives, noisy neighbours or just anyone who gets on your nerves. Naturally, business is brisk.But when one such assassin is contracted to head back to 1939 to off Hitler, things go wrong. The Fuhrer overpowers his would-be »
It looks like director Timo Vuorensola has Nazis on the brain. Iron Sky, his tongue-in-cheek sci-fi film about Nazis attacking from the moon, was recently released, and it looks like he’s developing a franchise around the title – there’s promise of a sequel and a three episode TV miniseries that will serve as a prequel. If reports are correct, these projects are only the beginning.
According to Twitch, Vuorensola will helm a big screen adaptation of the graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler by Jason, which follows a modern-day contract killer who time travels back to 1939 to assassinate the Nazi leader. But when things go awry, and Hitler sends himself to the present, the stranded killer waits out the decades until he can finally find his target and carry out his mission. The project was optioned for the big screen earlier this year.

If the movie title Iron Sky doesn't instantly sound familiar to you, you may know it better as simply "that movie where Nazis are on the moon." It looks like that film's director Timo Vuorensola is keeping Nazis on the brain, as Twitchfilm reports that he will be directing a three episode prequel TV miniseries detailing how the Nazis arrived on the moon and a big screen sequel after that. But the most interesting news is a separate project set during WWII, a time traveling comedy called I Killed Adolf Hitler. Based on an award-winning graphic novel by Jason (yep, just one name), the story sounds absolutely brilliant. Read on! In the story, contract killers can hired by anyone to eradicate enemies and people who annoy them. Someone sends a killer back in time to kill Adolf Hitler, but Hitler gets the best of him and switches places, traveling to »

As I said in my review from SXSW, Timo Vuorensola's Iron Sky is a goofy delight that surprisingly manages to exceed its "Moon Nazis" premise until the flick devolves into a generic, preachy finish. However, the film has found worldwide distribution (click here to check out a Japanese poster for the film), and Vuroensola isn't done with the Nazis yet. According to Twitch, Vuroensola is set to adapt Jason's Eisner-Award winning graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler. The film takes place in a dystopian world where assassins are in high demand to take out the annoying people of the world such as loud neighbors and dysfunctional relatives. One killer gets the unique contract to head back to 1939 and kill Hitler, but ends up getting stuck in the past while Hitler makes his way to the present. The premise rings a little of Time After Time, and I'm interested to »
