Our horror buddy Elijah Wood is starring in a new title: [Cooties](movie:1194319). It’s looking to be a genuine horror comedy, written by the strangest of combinations. Ian Brennan, best known for his work on Glee is there…then there’s Leigh Whannell, an experienced horror veteran who worked on Saw and Insidious, plus over a dozen other titles. Even the cast is a hodgepodge. Better-known faces are Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson, Jack McBrayer and Jorge Garcia.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on if it’s going to theatres or straight to home video. We do, however, know it’s coming out October 10th. Strangely, both attached directors, Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion have no titles on their IMDb pages other than Cooties. Just the same it looks to be a fun ride.
Synopsis: A mysterious virus hits an isolated elementary school, transforming the kids into a feral swarm of mass savages. An unlikely hero must lead a motley band of teachers in the fight of their lives.
