KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE 2 In Talks at Netflix
The Chiodo Brothers’ Alien Xmas is now streaming on Netflix. And today, director Stephen Chiodo teases that he has been in talks with the streaming giant about possibly producing a sequel to the cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space.
Chiodo tells ComicBook.com: “Look, MGM controls Killer Klowns. 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.”
So what about Netflix’s Killer Klowns from Outer Space sequel?
He says: “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.”
Killer Klowns from Outer Space is about a clan of evil aliens from an unknown region, who all resemble clowns. They arrive on Earth and invade a small town in order to capture, kill, and harvest the human inhabitants to use as sustenance.
The killer cult classic sports a fresh 75% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Killer Klowns from Outer Space’s title promises darkly goofy fun — and more often than not, the movie delivers.
