Drafthouse Films has announced it will release “Klown Forever,” the sequel to the first “Klown” movie and the Danish sitcom from which it was inspired, on VOD and in theaters in 2016. Drafthouse previously released both the first film and the television series in its entirety in 2012, and the distributor has plans for a limited theatrical release, along with a release on various VOD platforms, for the sequel.

The “Klown” franchise is an irreverent comedy in the vein of Sacha Baron Cohen from Danish duo Casper Christiansen and Frank Hvam. The sequel has been described “as though Lars von Trier were directing an especially mortifying episode of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,'” and it relocates the duo to Los Angeles, where they encounter Hollywood celebs like Isla Fisher, Adam Levine and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Don’t miss what Drafthouse calls “a depraved comedy of errors” when it hits U.S. screens next year. “Klown Forever” will be released theatrically in 2016, with a VOD release to follow.
