That’s right folks, according to Shocktillyoudrop, Elijah Wood (The Lord Of The Rings series) has been cast in the lead role for the remake of William Lustig’s Maniac (1980).
The original Maniac directed by Bill Lustig and starred Joe Spinell (Nighthawks), told the story of A serial killer who randomly stalks and kills various young women in New York, which he sees as revenge for the abuse he suffered as a child by his abusive mother.
The new version tells the story of a deranged Mannequin store employee who stalks women over the internet and kills them like prey. During all this, he is suffering hallucinations that throw him back in to the past!
