Elijah Wood is set to both star in and produce Ian Brennan and SAW and INSIDIOUS screenwriter Leigh Whannel’s virus horror COOTIES. The film will be released under Wood’s new horror label, THE WOODSHED, which has already announced Toad Road and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.
Cooties focuses on a mysterious virus that infects an isolated elementary school and transforms the kids into psychotic savages. An unlikely hero leads the teachers in a fight for survival against the crazed students.
Ace Norton will take the director’s chair as production on Cooties starts in April 2013
