An Old Friend
Iron Sky is a film we've been following for well over a year in fact it was about this time last year that we brought you the first look at the film's Cannes '08 sales poster. Well, the production may have been taking baby steps over the past year but at least it's good to know it's still on track and looking better than ever. In fact, in a recent press release, the Iron Sky team let the world know that they have rounded out their casting with Julia Dietze signed on as "Renate Richter" and Götz Otto cast as "Klaus Adler."
Towards the end of World War II, in 1945, the SS officer Hans Kammler’s staff made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity research. From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45, and they founded the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the so-called dark side of the Moon. The purpose of this base was to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right.
We've also been given their new character posters which are extremely reminiscent of the recent wave of Inglorious Basterds one sheets that have been flooding the net. Personally, I'm looking forward to Iron Sky a wee bit more. Those and an amazingly striking new motion poster for the film are after the break.
