What is it with these clowns gone bad?
Clown in a Cornfield–a new YA slasher from Temple Hill Entertainment (Smile)–has been a hot commodity, with Protagonist Pictures selling out all international territories on the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The horror pic–which does not yet have a release window–is directed by Eli Craig (Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil) and scripted by Carter Blanchard. The feature has been adapted from the Bram Stoker Award-winning novel by Adam Cesares.
The film follows the bizarre events in a fading Midwestern town in which a clown named Frendo–“a symbol of bygone success–reemerges as a terrifying scourge,” according to the brief synopsis.
There has been no word yet about casting choices or a production schedule.
And there may be more cinematic fodder for the filmmakers, as a sequel to Cesares’ novel–Clown in a Cornfield II: Frendo Lives–was published last summer, and a third book is in the pipeline.
