‘Outlander’s’ Sam Heughan, ‘Supergirl’s’ Melissa Benoist to Star in Love Story ‘Oxford’

Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are producing the film for Screen Gems

“Outlander” star Sam Heughan and upcoming “Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist are set to star in Screen Gems’ love story “Oxford,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

There’s no director yet, but Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are producing the film, which was written by Allison Burnett.

The story follows a young American student at Oxford University who falls for a teaching assistant with terminal cancer and together they travel the world, making the most of each day.

Heughan recently wrapped the indie movie “When the Starlight Ends” with Arabella Oz, David Arquette and Sean Patrick Flanery, while Benoist recently co-starred in “Whiplash” and “The Longest Ride.”

Temple Hill is currently casting Paramount’s adaptation of John Green’s novel “Looking for Alaska,” with Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Rowe and Logan Miller considered the frontrunners for the three leads.
