Actor Elijah Wood is destined for acareer behind the camera, feels the director of his new film Maniac.
The Lord of The Rings star plays a disturbed serial killer in Khalfoun's new slasher film and the director thinks he could follow in the footsteps of Ben Affleck, reported Contactmusic.
"He brought tons of ideas to the set, he's a total filmmaker. I'll be really surprised if we don't see him directing very soon. Funnily enough, he understood immediately that he had to be there every day. Even though we don't see him throughout the entire movie, he realised it was important that he be there to deliver lines and to really influence the other actors.
"Eventually the movie began to be seen through his eyes and he was participating. He'd be looking and pulling the camera on set, he was director of photography and he really morphed into the character. It was very interesting to watch," Khalfoun said.
Maniac is released on March 15.
