Elijah Wood Finds Killer Role In 'Maniac'

Deadline Reports:
Elijah Wood has been just set for the lead role in Maniac, and believe me, Frodo is a long way from the Shire in this one. In the indie that will be 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.

Gosh.....I can't see Frodo as a serial killer. That just freaks me out.

Kind of like in sin city when he was that creepy killer guy, that was odd

alycakes1817d ago

Yes, just like that...I couldn't believe he was playing that part. It just doesn't fit him for some reason. He still looks like a little kid.

i guess frodo isnt in the hobbit movies then?

alycakes1816d ago

Yeah, he has a part in it but it's not as big or time consuming as The Lord of the Rings...I'm sure it's still going to have some meaning to it but just not as much.
