IRON SKY Director to Tackle Graphic Novel Adaptation I KILLED ADOLF HITLER

Finnish helmer sticking with Nazis for next feature.

Twitch has learned that ‘Iron Sky’ helmer Timo Vuorensola is to direct an adaptation of Jason‘s Eisner-Award winning graphic novel ‘I Killed Adolf Hitler.’

Released in 2007, the graphic novel is officially described as follows:

In this full-colour 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 neighbours, 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 travelling 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 is set for 2013, with Vuorensola directing from a screenplay by DC Walker. Studio Eight, Blind Spot Pictures and Niama Film will co-produce.

For those wishing to see Vuorensola’s ‘Iron Sky,’ Dublin’s Lighthouse cinema will be screening the Nazis in space epic this coming Thursday, May 31st 2012. Head over to their site HERE for more details.
