'Iron Sky' Helmer Mixes Nazis and Time Travel in 'I Killed Adolf Hitler'
If the movie title Iron Sky doesn't instantly sound familiar to you, you may know it better as simply "that movie where Nazis are on the moon." It looks like that film's director Timo Vuorensola is keeping Nazis on the brain, as Twitchfilm reports that he will be directing a three episode prequel TV miniseries detailing how the Nazis arrived on the moon and a big screen sequel after that. But the most interesting news is a separate project set during WWII, a time traveling comedy called I Killed Adolf Hitler. Based on an award-winning graphic novel by Jason (yep, just one name), the story sounds absolutely brilliant. Read on!
In the story, contract killers can hired by anyone to eradicate enemies and people who annoy them. Someone sends a killer back in time to kill Adolf Hitler, but Hitler gets the best of him and switches places, traveling to the future and leaving the killer stranded in 1939. With nothing left to do but wait out Hitler as he ages, the killer must team up with his now much-younger girlfriend to finish the job he started years ago.
The concept sounds slightly similar to Rian Johnson's upcoming Looper, and I love the fact that there are consequences to being stuck back in time. This guy just has to just sit there and wait it out…you rarely see that sort of thing in time travel movies, since there's almost always some sort of device that can bring the protagonist back to where he or she is supposed to be. I think I Killed Adolf Hitler has the potential to be great, and anything that breaks new ground in the genre is heaven for a time travel movie junkie like myself.

I don't Wana see this "I killed adolf hitler" COMEDY because great Tarantino killed adolf hitler in brutal bloody spectacular SERIOUS movie.I miss very very much for movies like "where eagles dare" yeah kill nazi bastards, Tarantino get his revenge, this one must beat that(I doubt that) but my argument is with its genre, I'm not big fan of nazi comedies, I want serious movies about them,there's many untold stories about them. Nazis kill millions human beings I don't Wana laugh because of them and for any reason, at least I Wana a really Solid black comedy with lot of blood, a brutal comedy that make me cry sometimes either. I Wana something like at least at least Borat in nazis world and yes in timetraveling genre !
