First Stills from and Official Synopsis of Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac
Cannes Film Festival
Considering it’s playing as a “Midnight” selection at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, it’s no surprise that the powers-that-be behind Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac remake have started doling out a few goods for the film, including a trio of stills and the official synopsis.
Directed by Franck Khalfoun and produced by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Lavasseur, Maniac casts Elijah Wood in the role of a serial killer who works at a shop that sells antique mannequins. Nora Arnezeder (Safe House) co-stars.
Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt.
Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops and Frank’s obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill.
Look for more as it comes.
