Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I saw Klovn while going through submissions with the rest of the guys on the programming board of Fantastic Fest and to call it an R-rated comedy is very generous.
I know the guys at Drafthouse Films are releasing Klovn (July 27th, click here for more info!) and now it looks like they could get a big boost in people wanting to get a feel for the new Danny McBride flick.
Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros is remaking the film with Todd Phillips producing and Danny McBride co-producing, starring and writing.
Danny McBride is perfect, actually, for this flick about two adult friends who go on what amounts to an affair trip every year. They call it the Tour de Pussy and despite being married they go and fuck whatever they can.
On this particular trip, one of the guys gets locked into bringing his preteen nephew. You'd think that'd make them change their plans for the year, but nooooooooo.
Even with Phillips producing and Warners behind a hard R rating, I'm going to bet that there's going to be far less dick in the American remake.
That being said, if anybody could bring out the raunch and indecent humor it's McBride and Phillips has the power to protect him. Can't wait to see who they pair up with McBride. I could easily see Joel McHale as the sex-crazed, blue-balled best friend.
