November 14, 2012 Los Angeles, CA (November 14, 2012) — Tero Kaukomaa and Timo Vuorensola, the Finnish filmmakers behind the cult hit “Iron Sky” are partnering with Arnold Rifkin’s Cheyenne Enterprises (“Live Free or Die Hard”) and Ross Richie’s BOOM! Studios (“2 Guns”) to bring the sci-fi action film “Jeremiah Harm” to the screen. Kaukomaa, Rifkin and Richie will produce with The Corniche Group, and “Iron Sky” director Vuorensola will direct.
“Jeremiah Harm” is a sci-fi action blast about an intergalactic bounty hunter sent on a mission to Earth to hunt down a band of space-faring criminals and the girl they kidnapped. Set in space and New York City, the film aims to hit the chords of 80’s & 90’s sci-fi action films.
“Jeremiah Harm” is based on a BOOM! Studios graphic novel of the same name written by industry veterans Keith Giffen and Alan Grant. Covers and character designs are by John Mueller featuring interior artwork from Rael Lyra and Rafael Albuquerque.
In addition, the filmmakers have announced that they will use a crowdsourcing model similar to the one used for “Iron Sky.” Through this, fans were able to play a major role in creating the fictional world of “Iron Sky” by contributing visuals and even joining the production in small roles and as extras.
Similarly, fans can go to www.jeremiahharm.com to create their own aliens for the world of “Jeremiah Harm.” By crowdsourcing the filmmakers search up to one million alien designs. The most creative creatures will find their way into the film itself.
