Danny Mcbride is either a love it or hate it type of actor, one of those rare actors/writers that does dark comedy well. On the other side, Klovn is a Danish TV show turned feature that follows the misadventures of two characters named Casper and Frank.
So, McBride has no intention to go soft with his next project as actor-producer-writer, as he is set to write and star in the adaptation of the Danish TV series-turned-film Klovn (Clown) — the logline is ‘two men and a 13-year old boy embark on an R-rated vacation.’
The original film Klovn: The Movie was directed by Mikkel Norgaard and involved the two buddies going on a canoeing trip with a girlfriend’s 11-year-old kid without discarding their initial plan to have as much drunken sex as possible.
Todd Phillips (The Hangover), who directed McBride in a small role 2010s Due Date is now attached to co-produce.

On Sunday, McBride’s HBO series Eastbound & Down will have its series finale. It’s good to know that McBride has a new movie lined up.
