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.

Unfortunately due to me not getting the book for the messages I ordered I can no longer accept fan art which I am extremely disappointed about. I won’t bore you but the person I ordered it from sent me the wrong one and is now on holiday until the end of July. Not sure if it’s a blessing in disguise as the cost of it to send what I have already to LA is a lot so a book would make it much more expensive than it already is. All messages are now being put into a video of which a beautiful case for it to go in that I bought has just arrived this morning so it’s much more compact. Anyone who sent messages along with fan art will still be popped into the video just not the actual fan art as I was so looking forward to sending it to Jonny, so sorry for the inconvenience guys.. I myself am super annoyed about the book but it’s out of my control. I will continue to accept messages for another week then I am preparing it to be mailed out to Jonathan via tracked posting. Thankyou for you understanding and support as always!
I hate having to publish this more than anyone can imagine, I always held out for the fact that because it did so well internationally that might be what swung the decision in our favour but unfortunately not. Thankyou to everyone for their support during filming, airing and after finding out about it’s cancellation. It’s a comfort to know I’m not alone as to how sad I feel about it not returning. I’ll miss live tweeting with the wonderful cast but most of all I’ll miss seeing Jonathan portray Alexander/Vlad every week after the majority of the fanbase wanting him to play a vampire for so long
NBC continued to firm up its 2014-15 schedule on Saturday, canceling rookie drama Dracula. NBC tried to use Grimm to launch Dracula earlier in the fall — and the sophomore run of Hannibal when it moved from Thursdays during its second season. Dracula was never a huge performer in the hour, but it was quite consistent after dipping from a strong October launch. It saw significant time-shifting, 80 percent in the demo, to an average 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 5 million viewers
