Yes, you read that headline right: SPEED at a piano.
That's the pitch for GRAND PIANO, a thriller in the works from BURIED producers Adrian Guerra and Rodrigo Cortes. Elijah Wood is attached to star in the Eugenio Mira-directed film. Damien Chazelle (THE LAST EXORCISM 2) wrote the script.
Wood will play a once-great concert pianist who suffers from stage fright and comes back to perform after a five-year hiatus. Just when he's about to play the first bar, he notices somebody has written a threatening note on his music sheet. He's now forced to play his best concert ever to save his life as well as his wife's. In short: if he misses a single note, they're both dead.
The film will shoot during the summer months in Spain. Before production commences, Wood will be touting the remake of MANIAC at the Cannes Film Festival. He'll also be appearing in something called THE HOBBIT later this year...
