Killer Klowns from Outer Space was released in 1988, and it became a cheesy cult classic. Fans of the film may soon see those evil killer clowns back in action.
According to Movie Web, a TV revival is in the works, according to one of the creators of the film. Stephen Chiodo spoke about a revival of the film franchise in a recent online podcast over at Movie Crypt, and he could not contain his excitement over his plans. He said:
“Right now, we are currently pursuing a long arch series for cable. We wondered, should we do a sequel to the first one or do we do a remake? We came up with a ‘requel’ – it’s a sequel and a remake. We’ve been developing this for a while. It’s a trilogy in four parts, and it really follows the continuing adventures of new people who are experiencing this phenomenon of a Klown invasion, and once in a while you see some of the old guys pop up and hear their stories – find out what happened over the last 25 years. It’s f**king great.”
Right now, this project is still in the development phase. Do you remember the 1988 film? Would you watch the television show? Tell us what you think.
