Timo Vuorensola Says I Killed Hitler

After the long slog of gathering funding for, making and promoting space Nazis sci-fi romp Iron Sky, you might think director Timo Vuorensola would have had enough of the World War II goons to last a lifetime. But apparently not! Not only does he have a TV miniseries prequel and cinematic sequel to Sky up his sleeve, but he’s developing a film based on graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler.

Created by Jason (the pen name for cartoonist John Arne Sæterøy), the Eisner-winning title is set in a weird, dangerous world where contract killers are in every phone book and can be hired to wipe out annoying people, be they badly behaved relatives, noisy neighbours or just anyone who gets on your nerves. Naturally, business is brisk.

But when one such assassin is contracted to head back to 1939 to off Hitler, things go wrong. The Fuhrer overpowers his would-be killer and jaunts back to the present, where he hides out. Our hero is forced to take the long way round back to the future, by simply waiting and getting older. Once returned to his own time, he teams up with his now much-younger girlfriend to down the menace. Yes, you can certainly see why Vuorensola might be tempted by it.

With a script by DC Walker, the director aims to kick off shooting next year.
