IRON SKY Director's Next Revealed As JEREMIAH HARM. Watch The Concept Promo Now!
It was a week ago today that ScreenAnarchy brought you the first artwork from a proposed new project from Iron Sky helmer Timo Vuorensola. Yes, we knew he was already working on an adaptation of graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler but it turns out the Finn had something else on the boil and today we found out what it is. And, once again, he is turning to a graphic novel for source material.

Using a formula much like the one followed by Iron Sky - meaning a heavy crowd funding and fan involvement emphasis - Vuorensola is developing an adaptation of Alan Grant and Keith Giffen's Jeremiah Harm with Tero Kaukomaa (Iron Sky), Arnold Rifkin (A Good Day To Die Hard) and Boom! Studios Ross Ritchie producing. And Timur (Wanted) Bekmambetov's Bazelev's outfit is also involved.

Jeremiah - you can call him Jerry, but he'll probably rip your limbs off if you do - is a nasty guy with a bad attitude and a lever-action rifle to back that up. He's a human, but never really went to Earth. Born and raised in several intergalactic orphanaries with a bunch of aliens from all corners of the galaxy, he begun a career as a bounty hunter early, scoring his first kill before the age of 15. After that, the bodycount has been steadily rising, and by mid-30's, he has basically hunted down every imaginable race in the galaxy - but not his own kind. See, he's the only human around as far as he knows, until he is assigned to Earth, a planet claimed to be lost thousands of years ago. And of course he finds himself from New York, chasing a bunch of alien criminals and a girl they kidnapped from the Most Important Man In the Universe.
True to form, Vuorensola has already shot a lengthy promo / proof of concept for the film, which you can check out below. This is purely test footage - none of which will be in the final film - but it gives a very good sense of where they're going with it.

this looks both in tone and content very much like the intro trailer for the Prey 2 video game. neither are terribly original concepts, but i wonder if its purely coincidental.

RoboticPlagueNovember 14, 2012 11:07 PM

sounds like duke nukem

MarvNovember 18, 2012 1:46 AM

The voice sounds too much like he's trying to sound cool which does the exact opposite and ends up cliché and cheesy. The voice reminds me of a hair dye commercial for douchbag metrosexuals. Just my opinion, but study the character Marv from Sin City for a glimps of what it takes to pull off the tough guy thing.

eddi34November 21, 2012 12:00 AM

Years of professional boxing breaking your face, drug abuse, and banging models while sniffing coke off their asses?

That's a lot to ask for.

Timoteo HiroshimaNovember 21, 2012 4:36 PM

Looks stupid.

Oliver SloanNovember 21, 2012 5:11 PM

True! Mix in DC Comic's Lobo and give him Steve McQueen's Wanted: Dead or Alive Winchester rifle and that about all I see.

Riku RuohomäkiNovember 24, 2012 4:57 PM

Well, that wouldn't suprise me, because the graphic novel has the same creators, Giffen created Lobo. Alan Grant, who also wrote Batman and, most notably, Judge Dredd, with Dredd creator and writing partner John Wagner, has also written Lobo, on the great 90's run, with plots by Giffen and artwork (mostly) by Simon Bisley.

PhoenixNovember 26, 2012 12:08 PM

this IS duke nukem .. far to uncanny

Dragon GodNovember 27, 2012 4:35 PM

Visual Effects by Troll, seems legit.

NicoNovember 28, 2012 7:31 PM

I actualy liked this.

Perry FarwellDecember 1, 2012 1:03 AM

she cheats alot, but still impressive.

Perry FarwellDecember 1, 2012 1:09 AM

As for Harm, its a good concept, just not near gritty enough,not mean enough, a mix between Marv from sin city and hell boy,and John Mclane from die hard.

nouuDecember 11, 2012 12:16 PM

Lobo would have been better..

Steven BenjaminDecember 13, 2012 5:42 PM

They should go for something like: "One Eye" from Valhalla Rising - only, put him in space (except of course he was a mute, so this is mostly about look and feel)

IbziosDecember 14, 2012 4:07 AM

So basically it's The Punisher meets Star Wars. Also, judging from the promo, it looks like it'll be a flop just like the 2 Punisher movies. However, It is purportedly being made by the same people who made Live Free & Die Hard, so it may end up being good. If it does turn out to be a flop, then I'll probably wait til it's on Netflix or Pay-Per-View, so I don't end up wasting my money.

JackofalltradesDecember 16, 2012 8:35 PM

What is this ? Some sort of new Duke Nukem for the younger audience ?

IrrevenoidDecember 20, 2012 12:47 AM

I could be wrong but I suspect that's the point. I think it's a deliberately tongue-in-cheek movie...

Peter CallanDecember 31, 2012 7:15 PM

Too many holes. As a proof-of-concept, it already shows its weaknesses.

david gJanuary 1, 2013 12:32 PM

First kill by age of 15? Hunts down and kills people? No wonder kids go awol and kill innocent people nowadays. Horrible.

Mr.DancerJanuary 5, 2013 6:46 PM

i read a bunch of the comics. im intrested. will be a good gauge to see if a lobo movie is possible.

GnortimerJanuary 13, 2013 12:46 AM

Everybody knows the baddest man in comics is THE MAIN MAN: LOBO!

Stephen Darryl SuggsJanuary 14, 2013 2:04 PM

Total Duke Nukem vibe.

Donny MaxwellJanuary 17, 2013 12:12 PM

To me it looks like a cross between the Riddick and Planet of the Apes films (Mudball planet full of talking apes?). Anyone else think that? Oh and Duke Nuke, this guy looks like a knock off version.

Jeremiah RubinFebruary 16, 2013 6:42 PM

ugghh....

Please don't make this

dynomaFebruary 18, 2013 2:35 PM

So alien planets have steel works, stairs, cigars, rifles, trench coats...oh and they speak english and have words like sh*t. I'm all for the current boon in sci-fi..but this is just lazy

Sean CooperFebruary 24, 2013 10:08 PM

The voice is so utterly lame. Is that Cryxus? If it is, just use his bloody awesome voice and yes, he should be the lead for this.

WingbladeMarch 6, 2013 3:52 PM

I kept going, "Oh my God, it's Solid Snake!"

BoxingCannabyte EpicurusMarch 19, 2013 2:03 AM

Meh, more like Space Punisher, or Jack Reacher: In Space, or Lobo

SwillMarch 19, 2013 9:58 PM

Looks awful. I hate characters 7 miles ahead of everyone else. Truly 80s flat character, dont make this project.

johnnywrongMarch 22, 2013 1:15 AM

Do a better promo then. Just like I thought...TROLL.

johnnywrongMarch 22, 2013 1:16 AM

Or it's based on exactly what they are...Hammet and Chandler hard-booiled PIs. Read some, kid, before you come on here.

johnnywrongMarch 22, 2013 1:17 AM

Looks solid. Sci-fi Hammet. BRING IT!

johnnywrongMarch 22, 2013 1:17 AM

Y'all are completely missing the point. Just sayin'.

Don ThielMarch 25, 2013 4:03 PM

am I the only one that thinks Space Punisher/Duke Nukem meets Star Wars is an awesome idea? Sign me up!

kGMarch 28, 2013 11:01 AM

I thought it was a new Mel Gibson movie!

nemesis222March 31, 2013 1:30 PM

we knew this ages ago ...................yawn - new news please.

Voytek PavlikApril 2, 2013 2:22 PM

You also missing the point ^^

GodinhoApril 12, 2013 3:19 AM

Interesting premise, awful execution.

Cheesy voice, a lot of slow-motion, childish villain, ridiculous movement.

GOSH, I've never seen anything so terrible in my life.

Chrishaad GibsonApril 13, 2013 11:31 PM

Stylized japanese is now the new alien language. seems legit.

Jeremy Sean MooreApril 16, 2013 8:00 PM

Sounds like Duke, does Lobo's job, and looks like The Punisher without the skull, He needs to make up his mind.

El PavliToApril 17, 2013 7:08 AM

sounds/looks like Duke Nukem rip off... still pretty awesome though..

kl@firmafordele.dkApril 19, 2013 2:29 PM

PLZ MAKE A LOBO MOVIE!!!!!, but u if ruin it, ILL FREAKIN FRAG U!

Movie-Man SmithMay 4, 2013 7:02 PM

Wow.

CafaryMay 6, 2013 7:12 PM

Yeah Marv is still the toughest actor i've ever seen in any Movie?

NoneMay 6, 2013 7:15 PM

Too much talking for a tough guy.

gafgaryonMay 16, 2013 11:47 AM

So that means that this dude is coming to theatres before the Main Man?
Fragg off ya bastich!!!

anthony starMay 16, 2013 8:34 PM

GrimeTimeMay 19, 2013 9:00 AM

SynvaraMay 19, 2013 12:10 PM

sounds like a mix of the duke and good old jim raynor^^ i ll give it a shot^^

blueblankMay 21, 2013 10:25 AM

Looks shit

Simon de BruynJune 10, 2013 5:01 AM

The story was written in November last year. You're just reading it late.

kGJune 28, 2013 6:02 PM

A younger Mel Gibson would have rocked this part.

Pacifi3dJuly 10, 2013 2:07 PM

Looks boring as shit...

TropezJuly 19, 2013 10:01 AM

Is he related to Duke Nukem at all? Maybe a cousin or something?

Mathew LindauJuly 21, 2013 8:15 AM

How about "Chuck Norris is Jeremiah Harm"? =p

Kris GokurakuJuly 25, 2013 8:33 AM

A younger Schwarzenegger would've been epic. He could've shouted; 'get to tha Shuttle' and we would have a new meme for years.

proper kidJuly 25, 2013 2:30 PM

The "kid" looks older than you

johnnywrongJuly 29, 2013 7:08 AM

Sure, now that he has a pic.

GhostRiderb2283July 29, 2013 1:59 PM

Does anyone notice he sounds like Duke Nukem? They should make a Duke Nukem movie.

JSSeptember 3, 2013 4:21 PM

Come get some!

MartineSeptember 14, 2013 12:54 AM

It doesn't matter who the "baddest man" actually is among fiction characters, does it? Thats not what this article is about. Has no one read past the title?????? Seriously? Are you all five years old?

MartineSeptember 14, 2013 12:56 AM

Mickey Rorke did an amazing job with Marv....but thats not the only way to do this. What they have could work very well with a few tweeks.

MartineSeptember 14, 2013 12:57 AM

I LIKED Duke Nukem.

GuestSeptember 14, 2013 12:58 AM

Thats nice....but who cares? They aren't making a movie about Lobo.

MartineSeptember 14, 2013 1:00 AM

The strongest or the one in charge isn't necessarily the most badasses. Its not the same thing. The one with the most ballsy attitude is the most badassed.

MartineSeptember 14, 2013 1:02 AM

Maybe, but I am dying to see it. it looks fun.

The FlobbitNovember 17, 2013 7:54 PM

The Batman, Rorschach, and Marv have something to say about that.

Mo Henry BugDecember 6, 2013 8:46 AM

I love Keith Giffen. This sounds cool.

goneDecember 8, 2013 8:30 PM

lol at friendly neighborhood....

Derek JacobsMay 14, 2014 11:24 PM

What the hell does Dredd have to do with this?

Riku RuohomäkiMay 15, 2014 4:58 PM

Alan Grant, who has written Judge Dredd and Judge Anderson comics for decades. Who is also writing Jeremiah Harm comics.

Derek JacobsMay 16, 2014 5:04 PM

It really has nothing to do with this. You are a psychotic fanboy that needs help.
