Stephen Chiodo Talks About ‘Killer Klowns From Outer Space’ Trilogy Idea



Killer Klowns From Outer Space

A sequel to Killer Klowns From Outer Space has been talked about for a number of years now, and the team behind the original might have future plans to turn the film into a possible trilogy. The Chiodo Brothers, the creative talent behind the cult classic Killer Klowns From Outer Space, have been saying that one day we might see those crazy klowns make a return to the small screen.

Stephen Chiodo chatted with The Odd Podcast show this week, once again he expressed his interest in bringing back the Klowns in a remake and sequel, turning the existing film into what he calls a “requel.”

Chiodo explains:

“There’s nothing coming out that you could guarantee. Look, Hollywood is a very fickle industry. We’ve been working on a sequel since the day after we made [Killer Klowns from Outer Space]. I mean we have tons of ideas on different directions we can take it. There’s been a lot of legal issues, a lot of financial difficulties. We’ve had deals people presented us with that we weren’t really interested in. There is something that’s going to happen. We are currently working on something. But it doesn’t mean that it’s coming out next week.”

About the concept:

“We want to take some of the characters we had in the original film and do a new film that has new characters having their little adventures with Klowns, but also revisit some of the people we’ve seen in the past. Instead of a theatrical release, we’re thinking of going to television. We’ve got this great idea. Sort of like a trilogy in four parts, with the original film being the first, and then we have an idea for a trilogy that would just be a long-ranging series that follows new characters as they battle Klowns, but then we also see Mike Tobacco pop up. And then we see Debbie Stone. And then we see Dave the cop. We’ve got it all written out. It’s a fantastic concept.”

Well, the balls in MGM’s court, but the brothers are all keen to make this project a reality. There’s already talk that the brothers are looking for a writer to come on board and bring some ideas to the table. We’ll keep you all updated on this when we know more.
