Elijah Wood – actor and producer over at SpectreVision – offered a status report for Cooties, the horror-comedy picked up by Lionsgate at the start of the year.
There were rumblings that the film would arrive this fall, but that changed quickly and the film shifted into “release date: TBD” territory.
In speaking with Twitch, however, it sounds like we’ll be seeing Cooties soon…and with an ending festival audiences did not get when it debuted at Sundance.
The film marks the feature directorial debut for directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion. It is written by Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of Glee), and stars Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Leigh Whannell, Jorge Garcia and Nasim Pedrad.
In Cooties, a substitute teacher at a new school experiences the worst first day imaginable when he discovers that an outbreak of a mysterious virus is transforming the students into rampaging tykes.
