The Eli Roth-produced film Clown has started production in Ottowa, Canada. We first told you about Clown a couple months ago, when Dimension picked up the film for distribution at TIFF, along with Aftershock, an earthquake thriller.
Clown is based on a fan-made trailer written by Jon Watts and C.D. Ford, about a father who puts on a clown suit to save his son's birthday party when the hired clown doesn't show. It soon becomes apparent that the clown suit comes with a curse - one even worse than just being a clown. Watts will direct the feature, which has cast Andy Powers (Oz, The Taken) as the doomed dad; Laura Allen (The 4400, From Within) as his wife, and Peter Stormare (Fargo, The Big Lebowski, 2001 Maniacs) as a clown expert (I had no idea there was such a thing.)
