With his moon-based Nazi flick Iron Sky in the can, director Timo Vuorensola is turning his filmmaking eye toward a different breed of science fiction Nazi: time-traveling Hitler. Vuorensola is getting ready to adapt the film adaptation of Jason's graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler.
Vuorensola also has an Iron Sky sequel and prequel miniseries in the works, but next year he'll start production on I Killed Adolf Hitler. Here is the book's synopsis from Amazon:
In this full-color 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 neighbors, 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 traveling 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.
Given how craftily minimalist Jason is in both his art and writing style, I wonder just how faithful Vuorensola's adaptation will be. Will we get a quiet, animal-headed assassin, or will the movie serve as Iron Sky: Time Travel Division?
