It’s time to take another ride on a nightmare merry-go-round, and this time it will be in 3D.
The 1988 sci-fi/horror/comedy cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space is heading full tilt boogie for a 21st century reinvention with its original creators Stephen, Charles, and Edward Chiodo once again at the controls. Prepare for the coming of The Return of the Killer Klowns from Outer Space in 3D!
A new Killer Klowns movie has been in the works for years, but recently the project has started to gain some momentum. Grant Cramer, one of the stars of the original film said to have a vital role in The Return, gave an update on the film’s development back in June when he stated, “We have a script and a commitment for all our funding but the money can’t be spent until we have a distribution deal in place so that’s where we are – talking to distributors.” Most recently the Chiodo brothers were in attendance at Screamfest 2011 for a Killer Klowns Q & A panel and when questioned about the progress of the prospective sequel they stated that the new movie will be a strange hybrid of a sequel and a remake….a “requel” if you will.
Cramer also said that his role in the new Killer Klowns flick will “be the mentor to the two new young leads that have to try save the world from the Klowns when they return.”
