So Elijah Wood (AKA Frodo) is returning to Middle Earth in “The Hobbit” trilogy from Peter Jackson. His next film will be “Cooties”. This is 100 percent serious. “Cooties” will be a horror film where a mysterious virus infects students at an elementary school, turning them into “savages” leaving the teachers in the fight for their lives. Saw co-creator Leigh Whannell and “Glee” co-creator Ian Brennan wrote the script. Not sure what Brennan’s horror chops are, except for possibly scaring people through continuing Glee. But, this film sounds…stupid.
