Fans of the heavy metal band Slipknot will be very familiar with Shawn Crahan, better known as “Clown” or “#6,” who was one of the band’s co-founders along with the late Paul Gray.
Aside from music, Crahan is also involved in many other things, including movies. He’s done some acting, such as in the horror musical The Devil’s Carnival, and now he’s getting ready to make his directorial debut with an adaptation of the graphic novel Officer Downe.
Continue below for more and to check out a video of Crahan talking about the project.
The comic, which is by Joe Casey (who also penned the screenplay) and Chris Burnham, follows the perfect cop: a man who goes out determined to bring down the baddest of bad guys. And if something goes wrong and he gets killed, they simply bring his body back and bring him back to life, so that he can head right back out for more action.
Much like other similar ideas such as RoboCop and Judge Dredd, Officer Downe doesn’t appear to water things down when it comes to the adult content. After watching the video below, it doesn’t look like the movie will be any different, either.
While the movie is Crahan’s debut as a feature director, he has directed many of Slipknot’s music videos over the years.
