London-based sales and distribution banner Carnaby International has locked down a series of acquisitions for its post-cold war Middle East-set spy thriller, Damascus Cover. Among the pickups for the Jonathan Rhys Meyers and John Hurt-starring title, currently in post-production, were HGC in China, India’s Empire Networks and South African distributor Crystal Brook.
Thankyou to Howard Kaplan who has posted the first official poster for the release of Damascus Cover. We have also been informed that a small part of the film will be premiering at Cannes which runs from May 13th – 24th due to it still being in post production. Very exciting news!

I have added quite a few new additions taken with fans over the past few weeks with pictures from Morocco and Ireland. I haven’t made a post for some time regarding this category due to only getting 1 or 2 at a time. Enjoy the ones that have been uploaded!

After having the other wonderful theme online for well over a year it’s time for change again. I have had this one for quite a while and have been desperate to get it up but decided to wait until it was the sites 6th anniversary. Again it has a matching gallery theme and features a picture from one of my favourite shoots Jonny has done. It has been designed by the wonderful Lora who’s designs I absolutely adore. I hope you love the new look as much as what I do! If you spot any broken links, errors etc please let me know and don’t forget to subscribe to the site to receive all of the latest posts via email. I’ve also started to post again on the sites Instagram so if you’re on there too do give us a follow!
I am still replacing pictures in the gallery slowly but surely with the majority of categories aside from the filmography replaced with higher quality images. All lower quality should be at the bottom of the page with the better versions taking pride of place at the top. Some pages including the career section are still under construction so some links in the navigation may be broken but that will be rectified in time. Thankyou as always for your constant support <3
These files have been sat on my HD for almost a year but finally found the time to get them sorted and ready to upload which now takes the pictures in the gallery past 60,000. I also decided to upload those seeing as though Jonnys new look for Damascus Cover reminded me so much of this film. The quality isn’t that great but it was the best I could get. If you haven’t seen the film before there are potential spoilery moments so check them out at your own risk. The film is slightly odd yet strangely intriguing. If anyone wants to look for it I’d suggest also searching for it under it’s alternate title ‘The Secret Wing’. The filmography page has also been updated now screen captures are available here. A new on set picture from Damascus Cover has also been uploaded here

I have added an UHQ picture of Jonny taken around 1998, thanks to Alyse for her help in determining the year it was taken after a while of deliberation. Don’t you just love hidden gems? Check the full size in the gallery!

I have added a bunch of additional high quality stills from Jonnys appearance on BET 106 & Park back in 2010 when he was promoting From Paris With Love with John Travolta. I hope you enjoy them all!
