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".

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.

August 26th, 2016   Kursk, Movie News Comments Off on “Kurk” Filming Postponed

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.

May 20th, 2016   Gallery Comments Off on GQ Magazine

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.

March 4th, 2016   Kursk, Movie News Comments Off on EuropaCorp Greenlights “Kursk”

Deadline confirms Matthias is set to star in “Kursk“. Matthias mentioned this project last month to the Belgium press, but it seems it got the greenlight by EuropaCorp.

EuropaCorp has set Matthias Schoenaerts to star in Kursk, the fact-based survival drama that Thomas Vinterberg will direct this fall from Saving Private Ryan scribe Robert Rodat’s adaptation of the Robert Moore book A Time To Die. The film centers on a true story of the Kursk, a nuclear-powered Russian submarine that sank during a training exercise in the Barents Sea in 2000. Twenty-three sailors survive the crash and desperately wait for help to arrive while their oxygen runs out minute-by-minute.

It seems like yesterday that Schoenaerts broke out here as the brawny tragic protagonist of Bullhead, and he has risen quickly. Schoenaerts and Vinterberg just worked together in Far From The Madding Crowd, and Schoenaerts most recently starred with Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander in The Danish Girl. CAA and UBBA rep the actor.

This becomes another greenlighted movie for EuropaCorp to be distributed through its new pipeline RED. EuropaCorp founder Luc Besson has the company’s biggest picture in production right now in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, a sci-fi epic that stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne and an eclectic supporting cast that includes Rihanna, John Goodman, Ethan Hawke, Clive Owen, Rutger Hauer and Herbie Hancock.
