Remember that Nazi moon invasion film Iron Sky that is being released? Well the director of that film, Timo Vuorensola, must be fascinated with Nazi's because he's making another film called I Killed Adolf Hitler, a time traveling comedy, which is based on the Eisner Award winning graphic novel by Jason. The story definitely sounds entertaining! It follows the adventures of a hitman who encounters complications after traveling back in time to 1938 to assassinate Hitler.
Here's the synopsis for the comic:
In this full-color graphic novel, Jason posits a strange, violent world in which contract killers can be hired to rub out pests, be they dysfunctional relatives, abusive co-workers, loud neighbors, or just annoyances in general -- and as you might imagine, their services are in heavy demand. One such killer is given the unique job of traveling back in time to kill Adolf Hitler in 1939... but things go spectacularly wrong. Hitler overpowers the would-be assassin and sends himself to the present, leaving the killer stranded in the past. The killer eventually finds his way back to the present by simply waiting the decades out as he ages, and teams up with his now much-younger girlfriend to track down the missing fascist dictator...
Production will start on the film in 2013. A few months ago the film was set up over at Studio Eight who optioned the rights, and it was reported that they hired screenwriter D.C. Walker of Up Country Productions to adapt the film.
Have you read the comic, and do you think it will make for a fun movie?
