here is the bones of the screenplay i am currently writing
i am going to write the clown and two bozo brothers screenplay now, ive told you teh story of the party clown who is driving to a gig and his car breaks down, so he takes off walking where he thinks he is supposed to be, but off thru the woods, a giant national forest wildlife refuge where the bozo brothers do their hunting, and the bozos are trying to make their own hunting show with a digital camara they find, or something like that, and they drink bad moonshine or eat wild poisonous mushrooms that make them terribly delirious and bizarre, and they live in this ramshackle half-trailer, half covered porch where the shitter is a hole in the boarding so as to poop and piss into a gulley along with whatever other waste they rid, tho they are master recylcers, thus the patched together house and stolen electricity (one was severely electrocuted during said process) thus his quirks. . . the clown has a strange cough that sounds similar so a wild animal in teh woods, and is in full clown regalia when he goes walking, with his accoutremont, thrh teh woods towards where he thinks is the next town over, beyond the refuge, to what ultimately, once he makes it alive to the gig, turns out to be his ex-wife and children's birthday party, he is days late and dirty, cosume soiled ripped and torn, but he makes it work and his kids are glad to see him and his ex-wife, as usual, smirks and smiles and shakes her head. . . and whatever happens in between involves the bozo brothers hunting in their blind, they hear the cough, and wonder what it is. . they only catch a glimpse across a bayou (Delta Mississippi)of the sound and movement of the clown, think the cough is a mating call, and try to figure out what it is. . . . later see various pattern or color from a distance. . . and the next day see the clown at a distance, but overnight had ingested some bad moonshine and/or mushrooms and once they see the clown, they wish to stalk/kill the clown. . . attract the clown with funny calls or clown camo. . . mimick the clown to attract it. . . go through the climax of trying to kill the clown and fail. . . to the clown reaching (maybe on time that forst day, or later) the party, the gig, the responsibility even tho he probably has emphasema of lung cancer (in the beginning of the movie or early on he is at the doctor, clown or as regular guy where actually he is seen as normal guy without makeup etc. finding out he has cancer ending the movie with a wow bummer after a lengthy hilarity!
so thats it, we find a backer, we shoot it in the MS delta, i havethe location and clown actor, you and someone would be great bozo brothers, we need a Name actor to play off you (will farrell) and boom.
