Danny McBride is joining forces with producer Todd Phillips for a remake of the Danish comedy Clown for Warner Bros.

The Eastbound & Down actor will write, produce, and star in this comedy, which centers on two men who go on vacation with a 13-year-old boy. The original movie was spawned from the TV series, which follows Casper and Frank, who plan a party-heavy vacation. Their plans are thrown asunder when Frank must take his girlfriend's 11-year-old son with them on the trip, to prove he's a good father, even though they continue to party with the young boy in tow.

Todd Phillips is only attached as a producer at this point, and is not set to direct. Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam, who created and starred in the original series Klovn, are on board as producers of the remake.

No production schedule was given, although it is said that Danny McBride will start writing the script immediately. The original Clown will be released domestically by Drafthouse Films on July 27. Click Here! to visit the official website to learn more about the comedy.

Klown was released July 27th, 2012 and stars Frank Hvam, Casper Christensen, Marcuz Jess Petersen, Mia Lyhne, Iben Hjejle, Lars Hjortshøj, Tina Bilsbo, Mads Lisby. The film is directed by Mikkel Nørgaard.

    Actually Frank brought his nephew with him on the trip called "Tour-de-p*ssy" in the original movie, and not his girlfriends son.
    Their tv-show Klovn (Clown) is inspired by Larry davids "curb-your-enhusiasm". Frank kinda plays the same "dickhe*d" as Larry is.
