CLOWNPOCALYPSE from Eli Roth Will Be 360-Degree Horror Project!!
Eli Roth’s Clownpocalypse is a 360-degree horror project. This means in addition to a movie, the project is also being developed as a video game, plus a live event experience, short-form series, and merchandise. Philip Gelatt (Netflix’s Love Death + Robots) will write the script. Production will begin later this year and the search for a director is underway.
Roth tells Deadline: “I’ve had an amazing time collaborating with James Frey and the incredible team at 3BlackDot. From concept to art to the gameplay, every step of the way, no idea has been too crazy, and they’ve executed it at the highest level. For years I’ve had people tell me ‘You can’t do that in a game, it’s too insane’ and I finally found partners who said, ‘Let’s take this a step further.’ It feels like we’re making a game, movie and live experience with no parental supervision or studio to tell us to tone it down, and that’s the only way to create something spectacular and memorable. This will be a big, fun, scary event for gamers, movie fans, and people who love live events. The Clownpocalypse is coming. Get ready.”
