The first official teaser poster for the sequel of Iron Sky has been released. The sequel started its’ lengthy and ambitious crowdfunding campaign few days ago and is aiming for shootings in 2015. The script is being developed by the original writing team, and the style of the film will be darker, crazier and more epic.
Many of you have already spotted references to Edward Bulwer-Lytton‘s 1871-released book Vril, The Power of Coming Race. The film is not based on the book, but we’ve gathered a lot of references and ideas from famous conspiracy theories.
The film will be largely crowdfunded in an attempt to be able to keep our original vision unhindered by outside demands. This allows us also to have a bit sexier and more violent approach – not to say that’s the aim, but it’s good to have leeway to those directions as well. With script PG-13 aim of Iron Sky, that was quite soon ruled out. We want to go more to the direction of Starship Troopers.
Crowdfunding campaign is ongoing at IndieGoGo, a platform available worldwide. The aim is to first finance the script for the film, a few minutes promo reel and a production plan and budget. The campaign attracted over 10000 on its first few days, a good start on the way to the goal of 150000 by the end of June.
