Stormare, Allen Sign For Roths’ “Clown”

Peter Stormare and Laura Allen have signed on for “Clown,” the Eli Roth-produced low-budget killer-clown horror thriller at Dimension Films.

Andy Powers stars as a father who dons a clown outfit for his son’s birthday when the clown-for-hire bails. He and his family soon discover that he not only can’t take it off, but there’s a horrific curse behind it.

Allen will play the wife, and Stormare will play an expert in clown lore. Christian DiStefano, Elizabeth Whitmere and Matthew Stefiuk also star.

Jon Watts helms from a script he co-wrote with C.D. Ford. Cody Ryder and Robert Menzies are also producing, and shooting is now underway in Ottawa.
