Elijah Wood has shown us over the years that he has an amazing acting talent and can take on a wide variety of roles, but he’s played it straight most of his career. That all changes with his next film, Maniac! Elijah will be playing a serial killer who runs a Mannequin shop (ya know… in his spare time) who runs across a woman, named Anna(played by Nora Arnezeder), who really catches his attention. From the trailer you get a genuine feeling he’s legitimately falling for her, but those old urges start to pop up and all hell breaks loose from there!
The movie is directed by Franck Khalfoun of P2 fame and will open in theaters at the IFC Center and on VOD June 21, 2013.
