It looks as though the Killer Klowns from Outer Space sequel may not be quite as dead as we’ve all thought for years.
Released in 1988, Killer Klowns from Outer Space has become a cult classic for just how insane the premise is. Fans have called for a sequel for years, and while hope has sprung up from time to time, the project has just never materialized. Thanks to some recent developments, however, creators the Chiodo Brothers think that may be changing.
Out promoting the upcoming Alien Xmas, the topic of a sequel came up. “Look, MGM controls Killer Klowns,” Stephen Chiodo told ComicBook.com. “If [fans] write MGM and say, ‘Where’s our sequel? Where’s that property?’ There’s so many ways they can exploit this thing. It’s really the fan base… We have tons of ideas to really carry that through… So there’ll be hopefully something in the future.”
With the new partnership with Netflix, however, things might change. “We are talking to them. We’re talking all the time. Get this: we’ve been trying to do a sequel since we made the film and fans get angry with us. We don’t mention it too much, because they get angry. They say, ‘Oh, what’s the matter with you guys?’ But we’re trying. The business is just a bear, moves at a glacial pace. There’s interest, and it wanes and flows. You get some executives who really want to do it, then, all of a sudden, musical chairs. They’re out, a new regime is in, and they don’t get it. We’ll see how Alien Xmas does with the Netflix people. We’ll see if they can embrace our sensibility.”
Is the world ready for another Killer Klown invasion? We’ll just have to wait and see.
