Jonathan was spotted leaving Milk Studios in California on Friday 15th (edit). First reports confirm that he was there to take part in a photoshoot for The Hollywood Reporter alongside Colin Hanks, Liv Tyler and Roots co-star Anna Paquin. How relaxed and great does he look? Lots of lovely high quality pictures in the gallery and I cannot wait to see the shoot which will be our first since 2014!

Antonio Banderas and Jonathan Rhys Meyers have signed on to star in the psychological thriller Black Butterfly.
Directed by Brian Goodman (What Doesn’t Kill You), the movie is a remake of the French film Papillon Noir, written by Hervé Korian. Justin Stanley (Stigmata) and Steve Hilts are writing the English-language screenplay.
Banderas will play Paul, a down-on-his-luck screenwriter who picks up a drifter (Rhys Meyers) and offers him a place to stay. However, when the deranged stranger takes Paul hostage and forces him to write, their unhinged relationship brings buried secrets to light.
AMBI Distribution, the sales arm of the AMBI Group, is handling worldwide sales and will be introducing the film to buyers in Cannes next month.
Principal photography is slated to begin next month in Italy.
