January 22nd, 2016   Film Projects, Movie News, News & Rumors Comments Off on Matthias To Star In “The Sound Of Metal”?

Deadline is reporting that Matthias is in talks to join his “A Bigger Splash” co-star Dakota Johnson in the upcoming movie “The Sound Of Metal“.

Deals are making for Fifty Shades Of Grey‘s Dakota Johnson to star with The Danish Girl‘s Matthias Schoenaerts in The Sound Of Metal, a drama that will mark the directorial debut of Darius Marder, who is best known for his collaborations with filmmaker Derek Cianfrance including co-writing The Place Beyond The Pines. Michael Costigan and Ben Leclair are producing.

Johnson will play a singer in a band, and Schoenaerts plays the drummer. Everything changes when he begins to lose his hearing and has to come to grips with a future that will be filled with silence.

The film is in the process of being set for financing, but the plan is to shoot in August.

December 17th, 2015   Gallery, The Danish Girl Comments Off on Mr Porter Photoshoot & Interview

Matthias is featured in the current The Journal issue of Mr Porter which features an amazing new photoshoot and great new interview. We have added the photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the interview can be found below/after the jump.

Mr Matthias Schoenaerts is languidly recounting how he almost missed one of the biggest events of his professional life – the London premiere of his new film The Danish Girl (not to mention this shoot for MR PORTER). “So my flight from Antwerp yesterday had already left when I got to the airport,” he says. “Then I drove to the railway station in Brussels, and missed the train by a minute. So I hightailed it to the Brussels airport. I landed, changed into my tuxedo in a restroom, and jumped into a car. I was still in Belgium at 4.00pm, and on the red carpet in London by 6.00pm.” He grins. “I kind of like flying by the seat of my pants.”

December 5th, 2015   Gallery, The Danish Girl Comments Off on Instyle Photoshoot & Interview

Matthias is featured in the current issue of Instyle USA (December 2015). We previously added the magazine scans in our gallery and we now have added the photoshoot in our gallery and the interview can be found below.

“Style is something you radiate,” says Matthias Schoenaerts, the puppy dog-eyed European actor who has a habit of playing sensitive brutes, from Rust & Bone’s MMA fighter to Suite Française’s German soldier to a strapping hunk in the upcoming transgender drama The Danish Girl. “You either have it or you don’t.”

Schoenaerts, wearing an off-white sweatshirt, a black denim jacket, and bright blue Lee jeans, has it in spades. He even appeared in a campaign for Louis Vuitton. Perched at a riverside bistro northwest of Antwerp, Schoenaerts’s one concession to inelegance is the Lucky Strike rollie he takes a drag from. Running his hands through an impressive quiff, he smiles. “But style rules? No. I don’t pay attention to them,” he says, snubbing out the cigarette on the floor despite the ashtray in reach. A thin twirl of smoke lifts toward the yellow sky from the glowing ember. Schoenaerts extinguishes it with his Nike-clad foot and says, “I just have a basic sense of elegance, I guess.”
