2012 is purported as the Mayan calendar’s “end of the World.” April 4th of 2012 promises the invasion of the steampunk spectacular ‘Iron Sky!’ Nazis escaped to the dark side of the moon in 1945 where they have resided and been building up their forces for an invasion which they launch in 2018.
‘Iron Sky will be filmed primarily in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Germany, and Finland. Directed by Timo Vuorensola, the film is in post production. Recently, the amazing German actor, Udo Kier (‘Shadow of the Vampire’, ‘Bloodrayne’) joined the cast giving this writer yet another reason to look forward to this film. Udo will be playing the role of a Nazi leader on the Moon.
The following passages are from the production company, Blind Spot Pictures Oy.
Towards the end of World War II the Nazi scientists made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity. From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon. This base was to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right.
Now it’s 2018, and it’s the time for the first American Moon landing since the 70′s. Meanwhile the Nazi invasion, that has been over 70 years in the making, is on its way, and the world is goose-stepping towards its doom. The three main characters of the story are Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), Klaus Adler (Götz Otto), and James Washington (Christopher Kirby).
