Welcome to Matthias Schoenaerts Network! Your newest and first source dedicated to Belgium actor Matthias Schoenaerts. You might know him from "Rust and Bone" for which he won a César Award for Most Promising Actor. Our aim is to provide fans around the world an up-to-date and comprehensive source for Mr. Schoenaerts with the latest news, high quality photos and in-depth information.
Matthias Schoenaerts is a Belgium actor. He is best known for his roles in "Loft" (2008), "Bullhead" (2011) and "Rust and Bone" (2012). He can next be seen in "Suite Française" & "A Little Chaos".
THR is reporting that Matthias has joined “Red Sparrow” alongside Jeremy Irons, Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Lawrence.
Matthias Schoenaerts and Jeremy Irons have signed on to join Jennifer Lawrence in the Red Sparrow.
The story, an adaptation of the Jason Matthews espionage novel, follows a Russian intelligence officer (Lawrence) who is ordered against her will to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress, and to operate against a young CIA agent who handles the agency’s most important Russian mole. Joel Edgerton also is attached to star.
The Hunger Games helmer Francis Lawrence is reuniting with Jennifer Lawrence for the Chernin Entertainment and Fox film. Justin Haythe wrote the script.
Schoenaerts’ recent films include Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl and Luca Guadagnino’s A Bigger Splash, and he will soon star in Netflix’s Our Souls at Night with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. He’s repped by CAA and UBBA in Paris.
Irons will soon be seen in video game adaptation Assassin’s Creed and Disney’s Their Finest. He also will reprise his role as Alfred in Warner Bros.’ Justice League. He’s repped by CAA.
We missed this possible project before, but looks like Matthias might have joined Terrence Malick’s upcoming movie “Radegund“. Indiewire is reporting the following story:
While the biggest news surrounding Terrence Malick at the moment is that the reclusive director will be making a rare public appearance next month at the Princeton Garden Theater for a live conversation following a screening of Roberto Rossellini‘s “Journey To Italy” (tough nuts, it’s already sold out), the filmmaker is already at work on his next feature, “Radegund.” Even though his love triangle music drama “Weightless” is yet to come, cameras are rolling on WWII movie, and all we know officially so far is that “Inglourious Basterds” actor August Diehl is leading the movie, with newcomer Valerie Pachner also in the film. Well, you can add another name (and possibly more).
According to German site Blick, the always great Bruno Ganz (“Wings Of Desire“) is part cast for this tale about Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian man who opposed the Nazis, and refused to fight as a conscientious objector. He was executed by the Nazis in 1943. However, if this cast list from German industry site Crew United is accurate, the full ensemble has been revealed, and among the many names, are Matthias Schoenaerts and Jürgen Prochnow. IMDB also lists Michael Nyqvist in a role that doesn’t appear on the Crew United page, but again, none of this is official. And as we already know, Malick calls in lots of people for his movies, but they don’t always make the final cut.
Netflix has announced the cast of “Our Souls at Night” and Matthias has joined the cast. Entertainment Weekly is reporting the following story:
Netflix has announced that principal photography will kick off on Monday on Our Souls at Night, the adaptation of Kent Haruf’s novel. Jane Fonda and Robert Redford will star as Addie Moore and Louis Waters, a widow and widower who’ve lived next to each other for years. The pair have almost no relationship, but that all changes when Addie tries to make a connection with her neighbor.
Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) is directing from a script by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, and Our Souls at Night also stars Bruce Dern, Judy Greer, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Iain Armitage.
“I’m looking forward to teaming up with Jane and working with the talented Ritesh Batra,” Redford said in a statement. “Our Souls at Night is an endearing story and I’m happy we get to share it with a broader audience.”
Production will start Monday in Colorado, where the novel is set, and Our Souls at Night will premiere on Netflix in 2017.
THR is reporting that the filming for “Kurk” has been postponed. No new start date has been announced.
The Russian shoot of Colin Firth submarine disaster movie Kursk, produced by Luc Besson, has been postponed as the country’s defense ministry is still reviewing the permit request.
The shoot was scheduled to start in Russia next month and run for about a month. A new start date hasn’t been set.
“We haven’t yet received a permit from the defense ministry,” Andrei Sigle, a producer on the Russian side, told local radio station Radio Baltika. “They probably have other things to take care of.”
According to Sigle, taking the shoot to another country, such as Norway, which observers immediately suggested, is currently out of the question. He said the producers still hope to get the green light from Russia’s military.
The movie is based on a 2000 incident involving a K-141 Kursk submarine. A torpedo exploded inside the Russian submarine during a naval exercise in the Barents Sea, and the submarine’s entire crew of 118 died.
Produced by Besson’s EuropaCorp, the movie is to be directed by Thomas Vinterburg and will also star Matthias Schoenaerts.
Incidentally, Russia’s defense ministry originally promised cooperation with the crew. But later it reportedly grew concerned about granting access to classified information and locations. It didn’t comment on the delay of the shoot.
GQ Magazine released a photoshoot with Matthias earlier this week. We have added the high quality photoshoot outtakes in our gallery. The photoshoot took place earlier this year in Matthias homecountry Belgium.
Thirty-eight-year-old Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts picked up his English from “the classics—Rocky, Rambo, all the Scorsese movies.” But it’s only just now that he’s putting his action-forged accent to good use. Indeed, while he’s starring in this month’s exotic English thriller A Bigger Splash, he’d been hoarding top performances (the 2011 Belgian crime flick Bulhead and 2012’s acclaimed French drama Rust and Bone, with Marion Cotillard) to The Continent. And while we understand the allure of home—just look at those Bruges-grade bricks!—he’s now making a name for himself across the Atlantic, where the inconvenient truth is that the next three months will be hotter than Satan’s personal sauna.
To the rescue: ultra-light, ultra-stylish suits stripped of linings, shoulder pads, and anything else that’d steam you up. Here, the indie actor wears these deconstructed suits all over Bruges and never once breaks a sweat.
Matthias is featured on the cover of the Belgium film magazine Vertigo (April 2016). We have added the magazine scans and first photoshoot outtake in our gallery. The magazine is celebrating it’s 2 year anniversary.
