Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors, Mission: Impossible III) is set to take the lead in spy thriller Damascus Cover, producers said Monday.
Rhys Meyers was announced alongside fellow cast members Olivia Thirlby (Juno, No Strings Attached), John Hurt (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,Alien), Igal Naor (Green Zone, Munich) and Navid Negahban (Homeland). The film is being produced by U.K.-based Big Book Media, while Carnaby International will launch global sales in Berlin.
Directed by Daniel Berk, whose previous outing as director was 1998’s undead horror sequel Sometimes They Come Back… for More, and produced by Hannah Leader (Lucky Number Slevin, Gosford Park), Damascus Cover is based on a 1977 novel by Howard Kaplan
“I’m enormously excited about this role. This was a hugely significant time in the conflict in the Middle East, post-Cold War and with the collapse of the Berlin Wall, when an amount of spies were redeployed to the Middle East, where the theater of covert operations would now take precedence,” said Rhys Meyers, who is also starring in Roland Emmerich’s fellow European Film Market title Stonewall.
Damascus Cover will get its world premiere in Berlin.
2014 is almost at an end and I don’t know about anyone else but I feel it has absolutely flown over! This year on a personal note for me has been the best year I could’ve hoped for for quite a number of different reasons. A friend of mine said the other day when we were having a conversation about different actors and how some of them are unappreciative of what fans do made me realise even more how privileged I feel to be a part of this fanbase and to be supporting Jonny “That’s a sign that you are supporting the right kind of actor…. someone who is kind to all” Amen to that.

On Wednesday December 24th Jonny helped out at Los Angeles Mission alongside a number of other famous faces including Donal Logue from Gotham and Aldis Hodge. High quality pictures from it have been added to the gallery

Seeing as though it’s still super quiet (sad face) I have added new additions to a previous album that I found from when Jonny was spotted out in London back in 2012

After seeing rumours circulating the past few weeks regarding the new London fanmail address I can now tell you that the address that was given for Pips new office is no longer in use. Unfortunately Jonny and Pip parted company earlier on in the year. The new address is situated in Los Angeles which I sent his birthday present to earlier in the year and this will be the main one for now until I hear otherwise. The gifts sent to London are still there and I’m sure the next time Jonny is in town and has time they can be sorted through so if you sent birthday mail there earlier in the year, don’t worry. The only address for fanmail is now to be sent to is the following;
Brillstein Entertainment Partners
9150 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 350
After no post has been made for a month and things are more than a little quiet I decided to rake through my harddrive to update the site with and came across stills from when Jonny was promoting August Rush back in 2007 that I’d forgot about. High quality stills from it have been added to the gallery

I had the pleasure of going to the awards ceremony and created some of the best ever memories which I will never forget and will post about my encounters with Jonny soon. I have added pictures to the gallery of the event in high and under high quality some of which are mine and some which were taken by the Irish Post. More fan pictures have been added also, all of which belong to their respective owners. Thankyou for posting them! Make sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and I *may* just post my pictures with him. Watch this space..
I have added screen captures from Another Me in high definition to the gallery. Don’t click on the link below if you don’t want the film to be spoilt in any way but if you decided too, enjoy!
