Lionsgate Looking To Acquire Elijah Wood’s “Cooties”

January 21, 20140 Comments

Heat Vision reports that Lionsgate is nearing a deal to acquire North American distribution rights to COOTIES, the horror/comedy starring Elijah Wood (Maniac) that premiered at Sundance’s Park City at Midnight sidebar.

Cooties marks the debut feature of Wood and his SpectreVision production banner, which he runs with Daniel Noah and Josh Waller. The picture is also the directorial debut of Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion.

Synopsis: “Cooties follows a struggling writer/substitute teacher whose first day at an elementary school sees him dealing with a virus that turns the kids into mindless killing cannibals. The teacher bands with the survivors — played by Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer and Leigh Whannell, among others — to figure out an escape from the school.

Actor/screenwriter Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious) co-wrote the script with Ian Brennan (Glee co-creator). A horror/comedy with Leigh Whannell, Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson and Jack McBrayer? Count me in!
