Elijah Wood Provides an Update on Cooties – Release Date Pushed Back, New Ending Filmed

Cooties

In a recent interview with Twitch, Elijah Wood revealed that his upcoming film Cooties will see a later release than we had initially expected and also that the film’s ending has been reshot. Come inside for more details!

While it was initially expected that Cooties would see a late 2014 release, Wood has confirmed that the film will not hit theaters until 2015. The actor/producer also admitted that the film’s ending has been reshot and he believes the picture to be better for it.

Here are some highlights from Wood’s interview with Twitch:

The status [of Cooties] is hopefully January of next year. It definitely won’t be this year, it’ll be after the first of the year, and we’re looking at January, but we’re still waiting to see from LionsGate where they feel like it’s going to sit.

That whole journey has been amazing. It took us three years to get the movie made. And then the response was so good at Sundance. Off of the pickup from Lion’s Gate, which was always the home we had hoped for, we ended up getting some more money to make a new ending, which we’re really excited about. We only had so much money, and the ending we made, we weren’t always that happy with, so we got to make a new ending and we’re psyched. I’m excited for people to see it, it’s really funny.
