Edward Chiado says there’s been talks to bring Killer Klowns From Outer Space back. Colin Trevorrow drops a tiny little tease for Jurassic World: Dominion. Don’t expect a sequel to Solo any time soon. Plus, what’s to come when Siren returns, and we could be getting a glimpse of Halloween Kills soon. Happy liars day!
In conversation with Comic Book, Edward Chiodo of the Chiodo Bros. revealed MGM is “eager” to “make something happen” with Killer Klowns from Outer Space—including a potential film franchise or television series.
There’s been ongoing talk with MGM, they are keen on doing something with it, not only because of the constant sales of the DVDs and Blu-rays, the merchandising ... the new IT series that came out validated the love and fear of clowns and MGM realized they are sitting on the granddaddy of them all, in terms of the genre. But it’s really finding the right place, the right tone. What does a Killer Klowns from Outer Space movie look like in 2020? There’s a certain innocence that happened in 1987 where clowns were more universally loved than they are today, perhaps.
We’ve been in conversations on, really, all fronts. From a television series, which, personally, is one of the more exciting versions, because it gives us an opportunity to fully realize our ‘Trilogy in Four Parts’ concept. We follow new characters and some old characters over a really fun character arc that could be executed, we think, best in an hour-long TV format, but could also be adapted for a series of feature-length films to play out that scenario. So those are the types of ideas we’re working with. We’re really just working with MGM on a way to make that happen. They’re eager to make something happen. I can’t say anything is active right now, especially in light of what’s going on with the [covid-19 pandemic], but we’re scheduled to have some conversations with them when we get through our projects right now. There’s always a willingness on it. We’re looking for new collaborators, perhaps. Maybe bring us a new perspective on what it could be like in 2020.
