Eli Roth’s ‘Clown’ Finds Parents, Shooting Underway



Peter Stormare (Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters, Fargo) and Laura Allen (From Within, The Collective) will also star in the Eli Roth-produced Clown, THR adds this afternoon.

Produced by the Hostel and Cabin Fever director, and to be distributed via Dimension Films, production is underway in Ottawa.

The film co-stars Andy Powers, Christian DiStefano, Elizabeth Whitmere 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.
