CINCINNATI -- Mystery surrounds the latest film project shooting in the Queen City.
A movie simply referred to as "UFO" began shooting in Cincinnati in November, according to social media posts by some of its cast, including "X-Files" star Gillian Anderson.
Alex Sharp, who posted the Instagram photo on Nov. 18, is an English actor who won multiple Tony Awards in 2014 for his portrayal of Christopher Boone in the Broadway production of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time." Actress Ella Purnell, who also appears in the photograph, most recently played Emma Bloom in the Tim Burton-directed "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children."
The Internet Movie Database lists "UFO" as currently in production and states Sharp is playing a character named Derek Echevaro. The page also lists the project's director as Ryan Elsinger and fellow cast members Benjamin Beatty, David Strathairn, and Carly Tamborski but little else about the film.
And that's a wrap on UFO! I can't wait for you guys to see this one!! My heart is hurting to leave these wonderful, loving and talented folks behind - I've learnt so much and laughed so hard, this movie will always have such a special place in my heart I really really mean that so many memories, so many new friends, so much to look forward to! Will miss these last few weeks. Until next time groovy people...good luck with the rest of the shoot xxx
Sharp and Purnell both posted social media photos of multiple Cincinnati locations, including the ice rink on Fountain Square, O'Malley's in the Alley, Carew Tower; the city of Norwood; the Cincinnati Observatory in Mount Lookout; and the University of Cincinnati.
Sharp also shared in another Instagram post that he briefly lived in Mount Airy after moving from England to the United States a few years ago.
