AFM 2014: Eli Roth’s Clown Ready for His Close-Up
The first bit of artwork for the Eli Roth-produced flick Clown, starring Peter Stormare (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Fargo) and Laura Allen (From Within, The Collective), has arrived to get in your face. Check it out if you dare!
Roth became attached to the project after seeing Jon Watts’ awesome faux trailer of the same name. Christian DiStefano, Elizabeth Whitmere, Matthew Stefiuk, and Andy Powers co-star.
Watts is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Christopher D. Ford.
A loving father dons a clown outfit, wig, bulbous nose, and pancake makeup to entertain at his son, Jack’s (Distefano), sixth birthday after the clown-for-hire is a no-show. Unable to take off the clown garb, dad’s personality changes in horrific fashion. He and his family race to break the curse of the evil outfit before he undergoes a complete transformation into a homicidal killer with over-sized shoes.
