Elijah Wood Is “The Late Bloomer”

Elijah Wood and his “Wilfred” director Randall Einhorn are re-teaming on the indie comedy “The Late Bloomer” for Dignity Film Finance reports Variety.

Based on Ken Baker’s 2001 memoir “Man Made: A Memoir of My Body”, the story follows a thirty-year-old man whose body goes through many changes over the course of several overwhelming weeks after discovering he hasn’t totally undergone puberty due to a medical condition.

Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgove rewrote Joe Nussbaum’s original draft of the script. Jesse Israel, Heidi Jo Markel and Brent Emery will produce and shooting aims to begin in January.
