Christian DiStefano will star in the Eli Roth-produced Clown, says the Niagara Falls Review.
The seven-year-old Niagara Falls actor is currently in Ottawa filming the spook flick, produced by the Hostel and Cabin Fever director. Distefano stars as Jack, the son of a man who tries on a clown suit for a birthday party and becomes possessed by the spirit which inhabits it.
The film co-stars Elizabeth Whitmere (Being Erica) and Matthew Stefiuk.
Jon Watts is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Christopher D. Ford. It became an internet “thing” when a spoof trailer circulated back in 2011. In it, “A loving father dons a clown outfit, wig, bulbous nose and pancake makeup to entertain at his son’s 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.”
Clown is scheduled for release next year.
