Mary Ouellette, / Chris Burnham

While the metal world waits for a new Slipknot album, the band’s members are keeping particularly busy in various forms. Joey Jordison’s new band Scar the Martyr will be opening up for DanzigCorey Taylor has been busy with Stone Sour and has a new book; and now Deadline has reported that Shawn “Clown” Crahan has sealed the deal on his feature film directing debut with the moview ‘Officer Downe.’

The film is an adaptation from the graphic novel of the same name, which is about an exaggerated action-movie style police officer who is repeatedly killed on the job. Repeatedly? Yes. Office Downe is brought back from beyond the grave only to go back into the line of duty to protect and serve the citizens of Los Angeles. L.A.’s finest indeed!

Crahan is no stranger to the special seat with his name on it as he has directed several music videos, including recent clips from Hollywood Undead and Motionless in White. He is also working on a documentary about eating disorders.

‘Office Downe’ will be a demanding directing task, but with a Slipknot album not planned until next year, this allows some time for Crahan to expand upon his creative abilities and welcome the challenge.
