Check out the first Clown movie clip for a taste of the horror feature from Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts
Dimension Films and Anchor Bay Entertainment have today released the first Clown movie clip. Check it out in the player below for a look at the horror feature that arrives in select theaters and via On Demand June 17. This one hails from producer Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) and marks the feature film directorial debut of Jon Watts. Watts, as comic book movie fans are well aware, followed Clown with Cop Car and was then selected by Marvel Studios to direct next summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Written by Jon Watts and Christopher Ford, Clown tells the story of a loving father who dons a clown outfit and makeup to perform at his son’s sixth birthday, only to later discover that the costume – red nose and wig included– will not come off and his own personality changes in a horrific fashion. To break the curse of the evil outfit, the father must make grim choices with his own family facing danger.
The Clown movie cast includes Peter Stormare (Fargo, The Big Lebowski), Laura Allen (Terriers, Awake), Andy Powers (In Her Shoes, Sweets) and Elizabeth Whitmere (The Last Hitman, UnREAL).
This Clown movie clip isn’t the only homicidal clown excitement to hit the web today. It was also just announced that New Line has cast 25-year-old Swedish actor Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove, The Divergent Series: Allegiant) as Pennywise in their upcoming two-film adaptation of Stephen King’s IT. Look for the first film to hit theaters September 8, 2017 with Mama filmmaker Andy Muschietti at the helm.
