  • Slipknot percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan's debut as a feature film director, Officer Downe, has been picked up for distribution in the U.S. by Magnet Releasing, according to Variety. Based on a graphic novel, the violent sci-fi film follows a police officer who is repeatedly killed, resurrected, and sent back into the field due to a mysterious technology that essentially makes him immortal. Kim Coates from Sons Of Anarchy stars in the title role.

    Crahan told us not long ago that the experience of making his first feature film was grueling but satisfying: "I did six weeks, three weeks of pre-pro and 21 days of straight filming, and it was the hardest I've ever worked in my life. But it was everything and anything I could have ever dreamt of. Some things were a struggle, but it was a trip."

    • Officer Downe will debut in theaters and on-demand platforms on November 18th. The film is produced by Crank co-director Mark Neveldine and Slipknot manager Cory Brennan, among others.
    • The movie premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival last summer, where We Got This Covered said it was "sadistically stylized and punishingly powerful."
    • Crahan, who would like to direct more films in the future, has previously directed a number of music videos, concert DVDs and behind-the-scenes featurettes for Slipknot.
    • He and Slipknot singer Corey Taylor founded a production company called Living Breathing Films in 2012, although it has yet to release anything.

  • Two of the biggest and heaviest rock festivals of the past two decades collide this weekend as San Bernardino, California hosts Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on Saturday (September 24th) and Sunday (September 25th) at the San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds. Saturday's Ozzfest lineup will be headlined by Black Sabbath, while Slipknot will close out Sunday's Knotfest bill.

    Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne and bassist Geezer Butler were asked what they thought such a massive show said about the state of rock music: (Ozzy) "I don't know about the state of rock music, but I'm just gonna go up there and have some fun, you know. We're not trying to make a statement to the industry, we're just gonna have some fun." (Geezer) "It's good that we're still going and this kind of music's still going. To do something this big proves that it's still as popular as ever."

    • Also on the Ozzfest portion of the weekend are Disturbed, Opeth, Black Label Society and others, while the Knotfest lineup includes Slayer, Trivium, Anthrax, Suicide Silence and many more.
    • Both days will feature three stages, with one of them named after late Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
    • The San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds is where Ozzfest began in 1996 and where Knotfest was staged last year.
    • Saturday's show will be the last ever for Black Sabbath in California. The band is in the final months of its farewell tour and will play three more U.S. shows in Texas this November before visiting South America. The legendary act will end its run with a series of U.K. gigs in early 2017.

  • Korn reportedly filmed a new video on Wednesday (September 21st), possibly for the song "A Different World." That track is slated to be the next single from the band's upcoming album The Serenity Of Suffering, following the current Top Five track "Rotting In Vain." "A Different World" also features a guest appearance from Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor, although it's unclear whether he will show up in the video.

    Korn singer Jonathan Davis spoke about getting Taylor to appear on the track: "We were trying to figure out who we wanted to collaborate with, and I'm like, 'You know, that's the one, that's the guy.' And I texted him, I'm like, 'Do you want to be on a new Korn track?' He's all, 'Hell yeah! When and where, what do I do?' So he did great on the song. I already did my parts, I'm like, 'Do what you do, man.' And I like the way he did it, the approach: he starts creeping in underneath the song, you can start slowly hearing his voice under mine, and it crescendos up into the middle part where he sings, and then it's just full-on at the end, so the song came out great." in Fargo, North Dakota.

    • BRAD PITT SOURCE DENIES ABUSES ALLEGATIONS

      The latest twist in the Brangelina divorce saga was the news that made the rounds on Thursday (September 22nd) that Brad Pitt was allegedly being investigated by Child Services over an anonymous report that he got physical and verbally abusive with his children on a private jet earlier this month. Sources are telling E! News that these reports are not entirely accurate.

      One insider said, "This comes down to the kind of disagreements that sometimes occur between teenage boys and their father. This is where the situation has spiraled from. And Angelina as a mother can be very protective. There is no abuse. They both love the kids more than anything else in the world. Maddox and Pax are very protective of their mother and they are both growing up and developing their own personalities. And while sometimes there is screaming and yelling and they can all get boisterous, there is no huge problems here. Brad's relationship with the older boys is great, but from time to time they have their differences, which is very normal for fathers with teenage boys."

      • Another source said of Angelina's parenting, "She has a totally different approach to parenting. She has a calmness about her no matter what screaming and yelling and playing might be going on around her. But Brad can sometimes react differently. And it can be difficult to discipline children, especially teenagers. Ultimately, they both love the kids. From time to time, Brad and Angelina see things from different perspectives when it comes to how to handle issues that may come up with them. And sometimes things can get out of hand. A growing family is a process and sometimes the family can have disagreements."
      • The LAPD released a statement saying that there are no active reports of child abuse against Brad but TMZ claims that is only because the FBI is actually handling the situation since it all went down on a flight from France to the U.S.

    • KIM KARDASHIAN DENIES BEING 'SHADY' TO TAYLOR SWIFT

      Kim Kardashian is denying that she "threw shade" at Taylor Swift over all of the drama surrounding her approval of Kanye West's "Famous."

      Kim explains in the new issue of Wonderland magazine, "I never publicly talk bad about people. I still don't feel like I have. I'm being honest. I'm a fan. I like her music. There was no shade." She also claims that unnamed friends of Taylor contacted Kim about the situation but she explains, "I'm not petty."

      • Kim previously defended her actions of sharing footage of Taylor approving the song by telling GQ that the singer was "just playing the victim again."

    • EGOR TARABASOV THREATENS LAWSUIT AGAINST LINDSAY LOHAN

      Egor Tarabasov is not happy that Lindsay Lohan just put him on blast on Russian television. TMZ is reporting that he is considering legal action to clear his name after Lindsay discussed their relationship and alleged abuse which he claims are completely false.

      Lindsay told Channel One that he hit her throughout their relationship but she covered up the bruises. She also revealed that she supported them both because he is broke and even bought her own emerald engagement ring. She even feared that he would throw acid on her after he broke into her apartment and supposedly strangled her.

      • Lindsay said that dealing with the abuse brought her closer to her mother, Dina, because of what she went through with Lindsay's dad, Michael Lohan.
      • Egor said in a statement following the interview, "It has come to my attention that my former fiancée, Lindsay Lohan, is planning a new smear campaign against me in the Russian and international media. My relationship with Lindsay came to an end in July 2016. In the weeks that followed, there were numerous attempts to discredit my name by inaccurately portraying the nature of our relationship, publishing distorted facts, and making false accusations. I decided not to address those harmful and false statements at that time. As an international businessman, I aim to maintain a low profile and concentrate on developing my business. I also chose to keep my silence out of respect for Lindsay. Today, I would like to state that all accusations made, and about to be made, by Lindsay against me are not true. I refuse to be dragged into the media storm created in the aftermath of our breakup. I will not be making any more statements with regards to my former relationship with Lindsay, but I will use all possible legal means to protect my name and reputation."

    • THOMAS GIBSON ADDRESSES INCIDENT THAT GOT HIM FIRED

      Thomas Gibson wants to set the record straight regarding the incident that got him fired from his job at Criminal Minds. The 54-year-old appears in the new issue of People magazine where he explains the events that led him to kick writer-producer Virgil Williams.

      Thomas says, "I feel like it took years to make a good reputation and a minute to damage it. We were shooting a scene late one night when I went to Virgil and told him there was a line that I thought contradicted an earlier line. He said, 'Sorry, it's necessary, and I absolutely have to have it.'" Thomas goes on to say that he returned to the set and added, "He came into that room and started coming towards me. As he brushed past me, my foot came up and tapped him on the leg. If I hadn't moved, he would have run into me. We had some choice words, for which I apologized the next day, and that was it. It was over. We shot the scene, I went home -- and I never got to go back."

      • The former Dharma & Greg star also reveals his feelings about the show and his future saying, "It seems like they're trying to erase me from the show. That hurts. But I'm using this time to be with my kids, and I look forward to what's next. Maybe I'll do a comedy, or a play, or direct, or produce. My pride and reputation are hurt, but in the end I know the good work is what people will remember. I just need more opportunities to do good work and be a good guy."
      • His character will be in the first two episodes of the new season which premieres next week.
