Peter Stomare Finds Clown
Laura Allen also aboard the horror

Peter Stomare, Laura Allen

Even as he returns to full directing duties for his latest chiller, The Green Inferno, Eli Roth isn’t neglecting his other passion: rodeo clowning. Sorry, that’s not quite true. We meant producing other people’s projects. But a clown is involved, as Peter Stomare and Laura Allen have joined the horror pic Clown.

Director Jon Watts, who co-wrote the script with CD Ford, is busy directing the film. It follows a father (Andy Powers) who hits a problem when the entertainer he hired for his son’s birthday cancels.

Donning a clown outfit himself, he suddenly finds that he can’t take it off – and that there’s a terrible curse attached to it. You know, besides the obvious downside that clowns are freaky and terrifying.

Allen will be playing the man’s wife, while Stomare is on as an expert in clown lore, because apparently such weirdoes really exist.

Stomare last cropped up in sci-fi thriller Lockout, and will next appear in The Last Stand (out January 15) and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which hits our screens on March 15. Allen, who was most recently part of the cast of late, lamented TV drama Terriers, is at work on TV movie Secret Lives Of Husband And Wives.
