This guy isn’t laughing
First, the trailer that garnered the attention of Eli Roth…
This preview went live around mid-October. Screen Gems wasn’t involved. Neither was Eli Roth. The whole thing was cooked up as a faux trailer for a film that didn’t exist. That is, until Eli Roth saw it.
Roth is now teaming with the trailer’s filmmakers, director Jon Watts and writer Christopher D. Ford, to make Clown a feature film. Roth will produce for Cross Creek Pictures and Vertebra Films.
That trio will also oversee Aftershock, Nicolas Lopez’s story of the Chilean earthquake that occurred in February of this year and claimed the lives of over 400 people.
