John Cusack to Play Grand Piano


John Cusack is in negotiations to join Elijah Wood in the high-concept indie thriller Grand Piano, Variety reports.

The film arrives from writer Damien Chazelle and director Eugenio Mira and will feature Wood as a famous concert pianist whose crippling stage fright has prevented him from performing for years. When he finally overcomes his fears and plays before an audience, he finds himself trapped in a deadly scenario that forces him to keep playing expertly or forfeit his own life and that of his wife to a mysterious madman.

Production is targeted for this summer in Ciudad de la Luz in Alicante and Chicago with Buried producers Rodrigo Cortes and Adrian Guerra.
