Killer Klowns from Outer Space return to wreak havoc in 2012

We've been hearing rumors for a while that those crazy alien clowns would be back in theaters terrorizing Earth again sometime soon. Now it seems all the elements have come together at last and the original creators are preparing for another Killer Klowns flick in 2012.

The Chiodo brothers (Charles, Edward and Stephen) have been talking up the possibility of a Klowns sequel at horror conventions all year, and the film just keeps getting more real. The brothers have deemed their new film a "requel," calling it a sort of melding between reboot and sequel, and it seems the new movie is marching toward a release sometime soon.

Back in June, actor Grant Cramer (who played Mike Tobacco in the first Killer Klowns) told blogger Freddy in Space that he will reprise his role and play a kind of mentor figure to two younger characters. He also provided an update on where production was headed at the time.

"We have a script and a commitment for all our funding, but the money can't be spent until we have a distribution deal in place, so that's where we are—talking to distributors," he said.

Cramer also noted that the Chiodos are putting together a new batch of Killer Klowns for the occasion. The project also has a title: The Return of the Killer Klowns From Outer Space in 3D. Check out the nifty little teaser trailer, visit the flick's official Facebook page and prepare yourself for B-movie awesomeness.
