Elijah Wood is a 'Late Bloomer'
EXCLUSIVE: Director Randall Einhorn has tapped his WILFRED star Elijah Wood to topline Dignity Film Finance's indie comedy THE LATE BLOOMER, based on Ken Baker's 2001 memoir MAN MADE: A MEMOIR OF MY BODY, reports Variety's Jeff Sneider.
Pic is based on the true story of a nearly 30 year-old man whose body goes through many changes over the course of several overwhelming weeks after discovering he hadn't totally undergone puberty due to a medical condition.
Joe Nussbaum co-wrote the script with Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgove.
"'THE LATE BLOOMER is the type of wonderful heartfelt comedy that I like to engage in. Puberty can be difficult at best and has the potential to be extremely comedic in normal circumstances," said Einhorn. "This true story is anything but a normal circumstance. That truth is a new twist on something we all know well and Elijah is just perfect to play the lead role."Read Full Article
