As reported earlier by THR, Peter Stormare (Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters, Fargo) and Laura Allen (From Within, The Collective) have signed on to co-star in the Eli Roth produced flick. Allen (pictured above) will play the wife, and Stormare (also pictured above) is an expert steeped in clown lore.
In the film â€śa loving father dons a clown outfit, wig, bulbous nose, and pancake makeup to entertain at his son, Jackâ€™s (Distefano), sixth birthday after the clown-for-hire is a no-show. Unable to take off the clown garb, dadâ€™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.â€ť
Jon Watts is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Christopher D. Ford. Clown, which is currently shooting in Ottawa, is scheduled for a 2103 release.
