While out chatting about Alien Xmas, a new stop motion holiday film that landed on Netflix, Stephen Chiodo got to talking about him and his brother Charles Chiodo’s classic, Killer Klowns From Outer Space. Mainly, they got to talking about a long awaited sequel and how that might be going to Netflix.
“We are talking to them. We’re talking all the time. Get this: we’ve been trying to do a sequel (Killer Klowns From Outer Space) 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.” We have tons of ideas to really carry that through. I’m amazed that it has stood the test of time, that it’s multi-generational now. Parents who liked it show it to their kids. The kids like it. They show it to their friends. They get married, and they have kids. I am floored that it has lasted as long as it has. So they’ll be hopefully something in the future.” The Chiodo Brothers told ComicBook.com.
The idea of Chiodo returning to the world of Killer Klowns From Outer Space would be fantastic. The guys are still believers in practical effects, so you know that whatever they came up with for a Klowns sequel would be pretty rad.
