According to MovieHole Jonathan has joined the cast of “Six” which is to be directed by Tony Krantz who was also a part of Dracula’s production team. Also joining the cast is Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel)
Peter Sarsgaard, Vera Farmiga, and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers have boarded writer-director Tony Krantz’s (“24″) science-fiction thriller “Six”. Described to us as a “claustrophobic space thriller that melds Alien with Gravity”, “Six” pits six people against each other when caught in a chaotic catastrophe in deep space. Pic is set on a Jupiter Moon that experiences a deadly ice quake, leaving six survivors – all quickly running out of oxygen, and with only two space-suits to share amongst them – racing to a departing spaceship. The majority will do whatever it takes to get home
According to the Irish Post and Irish Central, Jonathan is to be honoured for his work in film this October in London!
The date is set for the 2014 Irish Post Awards gala, and actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers will take the stage upon accepting the 2014 Legend Award. The Irish Post is the biggest selling national newspaper to the Irish in Britain, widely loved and respected by the Irish community. Award winning Northern Irish broadcaster and journalist Eamonn Holmes will be returning as Master of Ceremonies, and this year actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers will be receiving the 2014 Legend Award. “Jonathan has worked very hard from an early age in life and the story of his own career development is fascinating,” Loane said. “We are delighted to be able to recognize and honor his remarkable accomplishments.”
Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ achievements in film and television are to be recognised at this year’s Irish Post Awards. The Cork-raised actor will receive the Irish Legend award in recognition of his 20-year long career. He will also attend the black-tie event in London this October
HUGE congratulations to Jonathan, I can’t think of anyone more deserving for the award nor anything more fitting to pay tribute to his 20 years in the film industry ♥
The trailer that was previously released for the Spanish promotion of Another Me last month has now been released
I posted this a few days ago but after having the site on a semi hiatus I decided to post earlier than planned. I needed a bit of a break from the internet and it’s dramas so took it upon myself to stay away but I’m back for now with a bit of news and news about the sites gallery
Cork-born Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain were initially cast for the film, but both had to pull out due to scheduling difficulties – Source x
At first I wondered if it was true but when I looked back at an article about Byrd and the Bees they’re both filming in September so it sounds as though, at least on Jonnys part, it is unfortunately true. I was really looking forward to this as the cast attached are wonderful in my opinion so naturally I’m quite disappointed. Nevermind, we still have others to look forward to I’m sure and the Byrd and the Bees role certainly sounds as though Jonny will get more screen time which is always nice to know
In other news, the gallery.. unfortunately some caps and maybe some projects will have to be deleted due to them involving nudity. I am still waiting to hear about what ‘nudity’ is classed as under our hosts regulations so if caps and projects go missing don’t worry, I’ll know all about it. It’s highly likely The Governess, Belle du Seigneur, Tangled and possibly
some most of The Tudors episodes will go the journey unfortunately as I simply do not have the time to reupload them to an entirely separate gallery ran by an entirely different host
According to The Wrap Jonathan has joined the cast of an indie movie called Byrd and the Bees which will be directed by Finola Hughes. No more details as to what role he will be playing but it sounds as though it will be male lead (as it should be *does little dance*). More information about the project below
Qoa Entertainment is producing the movie which Finola Hughes will directed from a script by Christine Fry. Tracy Spiridakos, who starred on NBC’s “Revolution,” is set to play the female lead opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Qoa Entertainment’s romantic comedy “Byrd & the Bees,” The Wrap has learned. Finola Hughes will direct from a script by Christine Fry, who is also producing the indie movie. The duo previously collaborated on “The Bet.” Spiridakos will play Rebecca Byrd, a young woman who travels to Scotland to find and meet her biological father and winds up meeting her dream guy along the way. Production is scheduled to start in September in Scotland.
Roland Emmerich’s gay-rights film Stonewall has added Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King to the cast ahead of the start of production. The film, which will star Jeremy Irvine, tells the story of the riots of June 1969 after police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. Irvine plays Danny Winters who flees to New York, leaving behind his beloved sister (King). Homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the watering hole of the local drag queens, gays, lesbians, and everything in between: the Stonewall Inn. At the bar, Danny meets the suave Trevor (Rhys Meyers) before catching the eye of Ed Murphy (Perlman), Stonewall’s repulsive manager who colludes with corrupt police, exploits homeless youth for financial gain, and is even suspected to have had a hand in some of their “disappearances.” It all spirals out of control when the police unexpectedly raid Stonewall. In a storm of anger and with the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born.
Actors Jeremy Irons and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are set to join the cast of the silver screen adaptation of Sebastian Barry’s The Secret Scripture. The Irish Independent has learnt that the two well-known stars are in negotiations to join female leads Jessica Chastain and Vanessa Redgrave in the big budget production, which will start filming this June, and are expected to sign contracts in the next 10 days.
It is not yet known what characters Irons and Rhys Meyers are being lined-up to play in The Secret Scripture, but a source confirmed they will both take on prominent roles
The project, which has been in the pipeline for nearly two years, will be entirely shot in Ireland over the summer, with an Irish crew – giving a further boost to the film industry as well as the Irish economy.

Well it’s all change again. Seeing as though Dracula is almost finished *crying* I thought it would be a great time to put up the new themes made by my wonderful friend Lora. I couldn’t decide what pictures to use then someone contacted me to say she had some pictures I may be interested in that are hard to get in HQ and the one I eventually decided to use has always been a favourite. It was taken by the photographer Philip Gay back in 2006 and I just love the half light half dark look. I think Lora has done just a perfect job and she already knows this due to the amount of times she got emails saying how much I loved it. I have LOTS of updates ranging from unseen candids which also include new additions to albums already in the gallery, photoshoots with additions and the replacment of MQ pictures in the next few weeks. If you spot any errors I’m sure you all know how to contact me and hope you all really love our new look as much as I do
