Back in May, we got word that Elijah Wood would be leading the new twisted psychological thriller, Grand Piano, with John Cusack joining him for the ride shortly after. Now, just a few months later, we’re finally getting details on the supporting cast, as well as the first still. According to Variety, Kerry Bishe (Argo), Tamsin Egerton (Camelot), and Allen Leech (Downtown Abbey) will be joining the two stars in some unidentified roles.
Eugenio Mira (Agnosia) will be directing the feature, from a screenplay by Damien Chazelle (Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench). Adrian Guerra and Rodrigo Cortes, the duo behind Buried and Red Lights, will be producing the project for Barcelona’s Nostromo Pictures. Check out a photo of Wood above thanks to Fotogramas.
The film follows a “piano player (Wood) who, after spending five years on a professional leave of absence, comes back to perform a concert, but finds a ‘threatening note’ scribed on the sheet music.” Due to this incriminating note, which comes at the hand of a psychopath (Cusack), he is then “forced to play his best concert ever to save his life as well as his wife’s.” Don McManus (Lovelace) and Alex Winter (Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure) will also be rounding out the principal cast.
The psychological thriller is currently shooting on location in Barcelona and the Gran Canaria Canary Island in Spain, and will also shoot in Chicago for a likely 2013 release.
