‘Iron Sky’ Taps Into IndieGoGo Crowd-Funding for Sequel

'Iron Sky' helmer also developing S3D horror pic "Dead Rise"

Following the commercial success of comic sci-fi actioner “Iron Sky,” Finnish shingle Blind Spot Pictures capitalized on the pic’s fanbase to crowd-fund over 112,000 Euros ($146,674) for “Iron Sky II — The Coming Race” via IndieGoGo.

The $14.6 million project is being developed by producer Tero Kaukomaa and helmer Timo Vuorensola, who is writing the script with Johanna Sinisalo, Jarmo Puskala and Michael Kalesniko.

Theps Udo Kier and Stephanie Paul, who starred in “Iron Sky,” are back on board. Plot of the movie are kept under wraps.

Budgeted below $10 million, “Iron Sky” was a local hit and sold to all major territories. 

Kaukomaa told Variety the project — skedded to start lensing in early 2015 — has already sparked interest from sales agents and distributors.

“I’m not convinced we should release ‘Iron Sky II’ via the traditional distribution model, we’ll likely opt for a day-and-date release. It’s the best way to counter piracy and satisfy all the fans around the world at the same time.”

A leading Finnish company, Helsinki-based Blind Spot Pics. is also developing “Dead Rise,” a $2 million horror project taking place in a submarine which Vuorensola is writing and is set to direct after “Iron Sky II.”  

The English-language film will lense in S3D.

Kaukomaa said the company is in talks with a U.S. writer to co-pen the movie.
