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.
Oh my, I remember this movie and it is a guilty pleasure indeed. I would definitely watch this especially if they have the original actors involved, at least in some small way .
