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 ♥
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 guys, the viewer ratings are in and guess which show debuted at #1 with a staggering 5.3 million (and rising) viewers?! What makes it even better is the fact that Jonathan was also a producer on the episode! Well done to everyone involved and here’s to more ratings like that over the coming weeks!
NBC unveiled its new Friday block last night with the return of Grimm and the launch of Dracula at 10 p.m. Fast National returns give the freshman series a 1.8 rating with adults 18-49 and 5.3 million viewers. The network’s first scripted push into the hour in some time, it won the hour in the demo and held 100 percent of its lead-in – Source; THR
I found out yesterday that Jonny gave another interview I’m assuming last month, this time with a Serbian magazine called Serije+
I am working on also translating this article for our Press Archive so I will edit this post when I have added it. For now I have added 4 scans from the magazine, enjoy! Edit; article now in our press archive
I have added the scans from an interview Jonathan did last month with Cosmopolitan. A huge huge thankyou to the lovely Eva who scanned her magazine for me! I am working on translating the actual interview to add to our Press Archive as best as I can as Hungarian is not the easiest language to translate

Well we are being rather spoilt this week! Jonathan gave another interview to the Irish Sun in which he talks about Dracula, which version he is basing his interpretation on, how he plans on playing him and why he’s not allowed to play music with his brothers
There’s something about me physically which makes me look just a little bit dangerous…
Everyone working on the set of the upcoming NBC/Sky series of the same name, which airs later this year, says the Cork native was born to play the role.
Everyone talks of how calm and focused he is on Dracula and how much he brings to the part.

At the photocall at the Four Seasons Hotel in Budapest a few weeks ago Jonathan gave an interview to the Irish Daily Mail in which he talked about playing Dracula, what it’s like to be on set playing the most famous Vampire in history and why he thinks he is perfectly suited for the role
Yet more going back to the past in the interview *rolls eyes*. It’s a shame journalists can’t move on but I know Jonny has and so have we :]
‘Dracula is the ultimate monster,’ the actor says, speaking in the Four Seasons Hotel in Budapest, where the series is filming until July.
‘Can I be scary? I’m not quite sure I’m the person to answer that,’ he laughs. ‘I think I could be. I try to be as charming as possible, but everybody’s got their off days.’
