AFM 2013: Elijah Wood's COOTIES Spreading To Europe And Latin America
Okay. Technically, Elijah Wood does not have cooties. But he is a production partner and stars in the upcoming horror comedy Cooties. And if you want to see Wood fight off a horde of savage elementary school children and you live in the U.K., Germany, Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg) and/or Brazil, then by golly you're in luck.
Cooties, a horror comedy, penned by Saw and Insidious scribe Leigh Whannell and Glee writer Ian Brennan, and directed by Jonathan Millot and Cary Murnion, was sold to Universal Pictures International Entertainment during AFM. Alison Pill (The Newsroom) and Rainn Wilson (NBC's The Office) also star. Here's the official synopsis:
If there is not a kindergarten-nap-time-don't-wake-the-children bit in this movie I will surely be sorrowful.When a mysterious virus borne from chicken nuggets hits an isolated elementary school transforming the pre-adolescent children into a feral swarm of mindless cannibals, an unlikely hero must lead a motley band of teachers in the fight of their lives against them. Who is this hero? The Substitute teacher.
