The sequel to 2012 cult sci-fi Iron Sky has achieved its initial target of $150,000 for script and promo development on crowd-funding site IndieGoGo.

Iron Sky The Coming Race, described as a dark comedy poking fun at big-budget Hollywood sci-fi features, is due to get underway in 2015, and has Iron Sky actors Udo Kier and Stephanie Paul attached.

Iron Sky director Timo Vuorensola and the same writing team also return for the sequel, which production is hoping will be budgeted in the $15m dollar range.

“The crowd funding campaign we finished now is just the beginning – we will continue down this road, because it offers us much more freedom to develop the film exactly the way we want it to be, and to create a distribution system which makes sense to all,” said producer Tero Kaukomaa.

Taking place over 57 days, the campaign offered contributors perks ranging from thank you videos to t-shirts, action figures and the chance to read and give feedback on the script before the shoot.
