The story concerns a once-great concert pianist who suffers from stage fright and comes back to perform after a five-year hiatus. Just when he’s about to play the first bar, he notices somebody has written a threatening note on his music sheet. He’s now forced to play his best concert ever to save his life as well as his wife’s. Think Speed at a piano.

The movie will shoot at Ciudad de la Luz Studios in Alicante, Spain, and a week in Chicago. A late summer production start is being eyed.

Piano adds to Wood’s already busy and varied schedule. The actor is the lead voice on Disney XD’s animated series Tron: Uprising and returns to star in season 2 of FX’s Wilfred, which debuts June 28. His movie Maniac will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this month, and he will be seen reprising Frodo in December’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Wood is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment and Stone Meyer.
