Elijah Wood Starring in Nacho Vigalondo's OPEN WINDOWS
Elijah Wood will be hanging out in Spain a little while longer. Having just wrapped production on Eugenio Mira's new film Grand Piano in Barcelona, Wood is now in Madrid, filming Open Windows, Nacho Vigalondo's third feature.
Open Windows is a technological thriller, told in real time, of a man with a bit of a celebrity obsession, unrolling on laptop screen. Vigalondo is known for stretching the narrative and aesthetic boundaries of cinema, whether through time travel in Timecrimes or spaceships in Extraterrestrial. Moving into the strange world of the internet seems to be along the lines of a trilogy of science fiction, one which will likely be just as interesting and mind-bending.
Wood may be an A-list star, but his commitment to independent film continues. Having just started his own production company dedicated to smart horror films, and his involvement with the prolific Spanish fantastic film industry, it's great to see him forging his own unique path.
Wild Bunch launched international sales of the film this week at AFM, and are co-producing the film along with Apaches Entertainment and Antena 3.
