Lord Of The Rings star Elijah Wood is to lead the cast in a remake of 1980 slasher movie Maniac.
He’ll join Nora Arnezeder in director Franck Khalfoun’s reimagining of William Lustig’s gory cult film, according to BloodyDisgusting.com.

In the original film, a serial killer stalks and kills various young women in New York as revenge for the mistreatment he received from his abusive mother.
