We are all familiar with Rob Zombies films ("Halloween", "Devils Rejects", "Lords of Salem") and it seems as he steps back from the Horror genre another may fill his shoes. Shawn "Clown" Crahan of Slipknot will be sitting in the director seat soon to film "Officer Downe". A film based on a comic about an officer in LA who repeatedly dies on duty but is telekinetically resurrected by his superiors and sent back out to the streets. This may not be a straight up horror movie but it should contain a lot of the same elements. I for one am excited to hear this news, not just because I love gritty comics but because I think he has serious potential, just check out a music video he filmed below.
He also directed this video for Motionless in White.
The Clown also directed this documentary for Slipknot.
