Frodo Sentenced for ‘Oxford Murders’

ON

Elijah Wood gets his second news story of the day (first here) as we learn that he will star in Spanish director Alex de la Iglesia’s mystery pic Oxford Murders for the Spanish production house Tornasol Films.

Wood is joining previously announced John Hurt in the film in which he will play a young student who goes to Oxford to study but becomes intrigued by a murder that takes place where he lives. This brings him under the wing of a Sherlock Holmes-style mentor, who uses logic and math symbols to try to stop a series of murders.

Filming is said to begin shooting on January 22 for nine weeks in London and Oxford, England.
