Elijah Wood signs up for murder mystery
The Oxford Murders was written by Guillermo Martinez and tells the story of a series of murders which follow a mathematical pattern of symbols. If the pattern can be solved, the murders can be stopped.
Wood is to join British veteran actor John Hurt in the movie, who is likely to play a mentor-style character that teams with his younger protege to try and crack the mystery.
Director Alex de la Iglesia is signed on to head up the project, which starts filming in Oxford and London this coming January.
Discussing the upcoming film to Reuters, de la Iglesia underlined the importance of casting the young star.
"I'm delighted to work with Elijah, who undoubtedly has the most powerful eyes in the industry and who is perfect for the part," he remarked.
