It's Official! Elijah Wood Is a Maniac!
It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire. On a wire between will and what will be ... he's a maniac, maaaaaniac on the floor ... *stomping feet rapidly in one place* Sorry ... couldn't help that. Well, the official word is here, kids. Mr. Frodo himself couldn't be farther away from the shire with this flick!
Confirming the original report from Bloody Disgusting, Deadline just dropped the word that Elijah Wood has been set for the lead role in Maniac, a remake of the scalp-happy William Lustig 1980 slasher classic!
Directed by Franck Khalfoun and produced by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Lavasseur, Wood plays the role of a serial killer who works at a shop that sells antique mannequins. He finds victims on the Internet and stalks them like prey, all the while suffering from hallucinations that throw him back into the past when he was abused by his own mother. In his twisted mind he gains a measure of revenge against his mother with each kill. It will shoot later this year.
