‘Iron Sky’ Director Reveals ‘Jeremiah Harm’ Test Footage

Published 2 years ago by

Director Timo Vuorensola’s Iron Sky is a cult film in every sense of the word. The film – which sees the Nazis launch an invasion of Earth from their top-secret moon base – relied on word of mouth to fuel its limited release stateside, invoked heavy involvement by fans and earned its financing through independent fundraising efforts.

Due to its humble beginnings, Iron Sky was likely never destined to become a massive hit in North America. However, the strategy that ultimately led the project through development and production is an admirable example of what a filmmaker can do with a grassroots campaign. Vuorensola, it seems, is at it again.

According to TwitchFilm, the Finnish director has launched a similar campaign to make an adaptation of graphic novel Jeremiah Harm, starting with the above promo footage.

First off, Iron Sky‘s Tero Kaukomaa, Arnold Rifkin (Live Free or Die Hard) and Ross Richie – co-creator of the source material – are among the producers. Here’s the film’s premise:

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.

The concept of an “intergalactic bounty hunter” – as fans of DC Comics’ Lobo surely know – is hardly original. However, the film noir style employed in the test footage (none of which will end up in the finished film) certainly holds promise. Of course, the finished film could be another matter entirely.

Do you think Jeremiah Harm has the potential to be a fun time at the movies? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Should be interesting.

  2. Looks alright to me and about time space films stopped trying to politically correct.

    • Sounds like Clancy Brown??

      • HA, those were my thoughts exactly. The voice doesn’t quite sync with the darkened facial movements so I would bet Brown was dubbed in because he has that great rough sound.

  3. I think it Adam Baldwin! Which would be a big win for this film!!

  4. This looks pretty cool as a space film noir effort. Sort of reminds me of a cross between Blade Runner and the Punisher.
    I rented Iron Sky last night but havn’t had the chance to watch it yet.

    • Wow…thoroughly disappointed in Iron Sky. Is it wrong that I wanted the Nazis to win at the end?? I was kinda hoping he’d get the shot off on the earth.

      This film was so typically Hollywood, that I had a hard time believing it was an Indy film. SNL ripoff of Sarah Palin, the U.S. is full of idiot warmongers, and the generic white woman/black man romance. Sounds like just about every Hollywood film in the past 10 years. I was surprised they didn’t throw in the formulaic Catholic priest molesting a young boy. If you’re going to mimic all the lame Hollywood plots, you might as well get them all. (they missed the ‘Capitalists hate the environment’ one too)

      If they really wanted to create something cutting edge, they could’ve kept the ‘Yes she(he) can!’ line and paired it with an idiotic Barack Obama look-alike, and had a black woman hooking up with a white man. That’s something you’d never see from Hollywood, and would’ve been a true Indy film….

  5. Please Choose Adam Baldwin!

  6. “The film noir style employed in the test footage (none of which will end in the finished film)”

    See…statements like that? Those give me pause…

    Otherwise…looks great!!
