Midnight selection directed by Timo Vuoroensolam

Entertainment One has scooped North American distribution rights to Nazi-moon-colony-escapee thriller ”Iron Sky” from Stealth Media Group in advance of its U.S. bow at South By Southwest this Saturday midnight, the company announced Thursday.

Directed by Timo Vuorensolam and produced by Blind Spot Pictures, ”Iron Sky” world preemed last month in Berlin. Its fan base generated by an early crowd-source funding campaign has already generated 6.5 million views of the pic’s trailer.

”We are happy to be working with eOne who have been behind this film from the beginning and which we believe will be a phenomenon and become a cult hit,” said Michael L. B. Cowan, joint CEO of Stealth, which has offices in L.A. and London.

Dylan Wiley, eOne Films U.S. veep of theatrical marketing and distribution, calls the Finland-Germany-Austrlia copro the ”Citizen Kane” of Nazis-in-space movies. ”We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring (‘Iron Sky’) to North American audiences, where its dedicated and rabid fan base is already demanding the film,” added Wiley, who expects a spring theatrical release in U.S. and Canada.
