“Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist and “Outlander” hunk Sam Heughan are set to co-star in the romantic drama “Oxford” for Screen Gems. A director will be locked before setting the film’s start date.
Benoist will play an American Rhodes scholar who, after arriving at Oxford University, falls for an arrogant teaching assistant (Heughan) who is quietly fighting terminal cancer.
When she learns the truth, they make the most of each day traveling the world together. Allison Burnett penned the script while Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are producing.
