Adding to his already incredibly busy schedule, the upcoming indie Grand Piano will star Elijah Wood as a world-famous pianist who suffers from terrible stage fright.
This year, Wood will appear in seven films, including the first installment of the highly anticipated film adaptation of The Hobbit. Production on Grand Piano reportedly will begin in late summer.
Producers are Adrian Guerra and Rodrigo Cortes, both of whom worked on Buried with Ryan Reynolds. Damien Chazelle is writing the script and Eugenio Mira will helm.
The story concerns a once-great concert pianist who suffers from stage fright and comes back to perform after a five-year hiatus. Just when he’s about to play the first bar, he notices somebody has written a threatening note on his music sheet. He’s now forced to play his best concert ever to save his life as well as his wife’s. Think Speed at a piano.
