Like most projects we've reported on today this new comedy horror from co-directors Jonathan Millott and Cary Murnion will also fix itself into the January schedule for its Sundance Film Festival premiere. Comedy/horror 'Cooties' stars Elijah Wood ('Maniac') who is certainly slipping the genre entries under his belt of late. Both he and a group of teachers must fend off a bunch of students taken down by a strange virus only to turn into mindless savages. Rainn Wilson ('The Office'), Alison Pill ('Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'), Jack McBrayer ('30 Rock'), Leigh Whannell ('Saw') and Nasim Pedrad also star and a bunch of new images have arrived. The project will be familiar terriority for Elijah who starred in 'The Faculty' back in 1999 where it was the students facing off against bodysnatched teachers. Leigh Whannell ('Indious Chapter 2') and Ian Brennan both co-wrote the script. Check out the new images below.
"A mysterious virus hits an isolated elementary school, transforming the pre-adolescent children into a feral swarm of mindless savages. An unlikely hero must lead a motley band of teachers in the fight of their lives against the monstrous pupils."
