Elijah Wood stars as a concert pianist coerced into giving the performance of his life by an unseen sniper in Grand Piano, from Spanish director Eugenio Mira. Mira’s English language debut is written by Damien Chazelle (Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench) and also stars John Cusack and Kerry Bishé. Mira is an accomplished composer himself, having scored his own films Agnosia and The Birthday as well as 2007’s Timecrimes from fellow Spaniard Nacho Vigalondo. (Wood also stars in Vigalondo’s forthcoming first English-language film, Open Windows.) Magnet Releasing snapped up rights to the thriller in September when it premiered at Austin’s Fantastic Fest, and has set a March 7 release following a January 30 VOD debut. Watch the trailer:
