Gah! Girls! I knew there was a reason to keep away from them! It seems that I’m not the only one that is afraid of them and their germs, as Elijah Wood will be producing a horror film about their chromosome pathogens, in Cooties.
There’s no word yet as to whether he’ll star in it, but Wood will back the gory flick, which has been described as being abouta virus that strikes a school, and turns the prepubscent inhabitants inside into bloodthirsty savages.
It might be a while before anyone notices that change though, if it’s a public school. With an assembly of monsters trapping them within the education facility, it’s up to the teachers to find a way out, led by an unlikely hero.
The film is set to be distributed by Synchronicty Entertainment, and features a script from Leigh “Saw” Whannell, with Ace Norton directing.
