Blood, boobs and Frodo Baggins? The Maniac remake trailer
But Wood is indeed the lead in this redo of William Lustig 1980 cult classic. The original dealt with a troubled young man who vents his childhood abuse on women in New York City. Things get complicated when he meets a beautiful photographer and starts to feel . . . feelings?
Judging from the preview below, Franck Khalfoun's spin doesn't stray too far from the source material. Wood's casting in the real coup here. I'm curious to see how he pulls the part off. Given the amount of red stuff on display, and producer Alexandre Aja's track record for gore, things will be bloody.
Maniac just closed out the Cannes Film Festival, so I'm sure we can expect word on distribution soon. The film is expected to hit theatres this year.
