According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wood will next star in The Oxford Murders, the English language debut of Spanish helmer Alex de la Iglesia. The film is a departure from Iglesia's usual style of black comedy, but the director seemed confident in his choice of Wood in the lead when he cryptically stated: "I'm delighted to work with Elijah, who undoubtedly has the most powerful eyes in the industry and who is perfect for the part." As we previously told you, the film follows a young student (Wood) who attends the acclaimed English university, but becomes increasingly involved in an unsolved murder committed on campus. And, in a Da Vinci Code-style of whodunit, the murders appear to be linked by a mathematical code. Also starring is John Hurt as a Sherlock Holmes-style investigator who takes Wood's character under his wing. The Oxford Murders will begin shooting this January on location in England.
