Elijah Wood has taken on the lead role in upcoming indie comedy The Late Bloomer.

Variety reports that director Randall Einhorn has enlisted The Hobbit star to play a man who discovers he didn't go through puberty properly because of a medical problem.

The pair have worked together on the dark comedy TV series Wilfred, which follows a young man (played by Elijah) and his friendship with a neighbour's dog.

The Late Bloomer is based on Ken Baker's 2001 memoir Man Made: A Memoir Of My Body.

"The combination of Einhorn and Wood is exceptional, as we've seen with the success of Wilfred. I know that they will honour Baker's true story in a very entertaining way," executive producer Maggie Monteith said.
