Kristen Wiig Into “Clown” Fetishism?

SNL star and rising film actress Kristen Wiig (“MacGruber”) has optioned Monica Drake’s 2007 novel “Clown Girl” reports Deadline.

The dark romance/comedy follows Nita, a woman who performs at street fair’s as Sniffles the Clown and struggles to make a living while trying to resist the potentially lucrative prostitution trade involving clown fetishists. She soon falls for a local cop.

Wiig apparently plans to write the script and play the lead character, no word on when this would move forward though considering her increasingly busy schedule.
