Elijah Wood has signed on to star in Grand Piano, an indie thriller that The Hollywood Reporter describes as "Speed at a piano." Wood will play a concert pianist who returns to the stage after a five-year break and discovers a message on his sheet music threatening his and his wife's lives. We look forward to the Simpsons line about the piano that couldn't slow down.
