UPDATE! Iron Sky. Nazi's on the Moon! Got Picked up at Cannes.

by Joey Paur

This is a pretty fun short film. I like the style, design, and feel. Very Sky Captainish. It's Called Iron Sky. And If Nazi's were to come back and invade us from the moon I would be the first there to destroy them. At least I'd try to be the first there. Not sure where they would land first. I may have to be the first when they land in my area. Ok, enough ranting watch it.




Here is some interesting news. This movie Iron Sky was picked up at Cannes to be made into a full length feature film. Here is the Word from Hollywood Reporter:

CANNES -- Finnish production company Blind Spot Pictures has signed a co-production agreement with Oliver Damian’s 27 Films Prods. for their planned Nazis in space film “Iron Sky.”
Billed as a dark sci-fi comedy, the “Iron Sky” tagline is: “In 1945, the Nazis went to the moon. In 2018, they are coming back.” The trailer for the film has become a surprise hit on YouTube and Blind Spot is in Cannes drumming up financing for the English-language feature. 
“Since we’re making a film about space Nazis, we’re going to need some really good German talents for the cast” “Iron Sky” director Timo Vuorensola said. “We’re also planning to shoot majority of the film in Germany.”
Damian, a producer on Aleksandr Sokurov’s “Russian Ark” (2002) will co-produce the project through his Berlin-based operation. Earlier this week, Blind Spot closed a pre-sale on the title with Polish distributor Kino Swiat.

Not sure we will ever see it here in the states outside of DVD but we'll have to wait and see.
