Very exciting news coming up lately with lots of project scheduled for release in 2016. I for one cannot wait to see all of them!
A+E Networks has lined up a roster of established actors and newcomers for its four- night, eight-hour event miniseries Roots, a remake of the iconic 1977 ABC mini, which drew critical praise and blockbuster viewership. Cast in the reboot, from A+E Studios, are Oscar winners Forest Whitaker and Anna Paquin, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Anika Noni Rose, Derek Luke, Chad L. Coleman and Erica Tazel.
Meyers (The Tudors) is Tom Lea, an uneducated slave owner desperate to claw his way into the elite company of Southern gentility
Behind the scenes at the Toronto Film Festival, film buyers got a sneak peek at a new movie starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Joe Strummer, the late lead singer of the Clash. The footage was appropriately shown at pop-up venue London House, set up for the UK film industry.
Meyers wowed viewers in a clip as punk legend Strummer, singing “White Riot.” “Everyone had goose bumps,” said a source who saw the footage from “London Town,” which is set in 1978. Meyers does all the singing as Strummer in the movie about a teen obsessed with the band. The Ramones and Buzzcocks are also on the soundtrack, and agencies ICM and CAA are selling US rights.
The Jonathan Rhys Meyers comeback has officially begun
The Irish heartthrob, arguably best-known for his starring role in TV’s The Tudors, has a major role in Roland Emmerich’s gay rights drama Stonewall, which debuts at the Toronto International Film Festival Sept. 18 and rolls out worldwide later this month, and is starring in upcoming cold war spy thriller Damascus Cover alongside John Hurt and Olivia Thirlby, which was shopped to buyers in Cannes. Now Meyers has landed another leading role, signing on to star in Shambhala, a survivalist drama set in the Himalayas.
The feature, set to begin shooting this fall, was written by emerging Australian filmmaker Summer Nicks, who will also direct. Meyers will play the lone survivor of a plane crash in the Hindu Kush mountain range in Northern Pakistan. Hit with sudden amnesia, he must fight to stay alive and reach civilization in a remote, unfamiliar land.
“It’s a beautiful journey, a hero’s journey,” Xeitgeist’s co-founder Mark Montgomery tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Our characters has lost his memory, but is rescued by a brother and sister who live in this remote region.”
“We’ve got a really sensitive, intelligent actor in Rhys Meyers,” adds Montgomery. “With all the problems he’s faced, what the press said about his troubles, we can definitely work with this guy. We’re backing Jonathan.”
Xeitgeist plans to shoot on location near the Himalayas as well as in Singapore. London-based Carnaby Sales & Distribution, which worked with Xeitgest on Damascus Cover, is handling international sales for Shambhala and will be introducing the project to buyers at TIFF.
