Matthias and director Alice Winocour attended the “Disorder” (Maryland) earlier today in London. We have added the first high quality images in our gallery.
We have updated our gallery with various photoshoot outtakes, including a recent one for “The Danish Girl” promotion.
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.
Matthias attended the 2016 César Film Awards last night. We have added the high quality images in our gallery. He presented one of the awards. The ceremony was held at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris and is the equivalent to the French Oscars. In 2013 Matthias won the Most Promising Actor Cesar award.
Matthias stopped by the AnOther Magazine 15th Anniversary hosted by Kate Moss, Tilda Swinton and Michèle Lamy. He was photographed with his “The Drop” co-star and friend Noomi Rapace and actor Idris Elba. We have added the images in our gallery.
Matthias attended the Elle Style Awards 2016 last night were he received the Best Actor Award. He was also seen posing with his friend and “The Drop” co-star Noomi Rapace. We have added the high quality images in our gallery.
Matthias is featured on the cover of L’Officiel Italia Hommes Spring/Summer 2016. The magazine scans and photoshoot have been added in our gallery. Thanks to my good friend Luciana from Emma Stone Fan and The Wittrock Files for her donations.
Matthias talked to the Belgium newspaper The Morning (De Morgen) and he confirmed he will reteam with Bullhead director Michael R. Roskam on “The Faithful” this year but he also mentioned he will reteam with “Far From The Madding Crowd” director Thomas Vinterberg:
I will also collaborate again with Thomas Vinterberg, with whom I worked on Far From The Madding Crowd. Vinterberg will film “Kursk” in the fall, the story of a sunken Russian submarine, and I will play the captain. I am really looking forward to it.
Earlier this year Deadline reported that director Thomas Vinterberg signed on to direct “Kursk“. They reported the following story:
EuropaCorp has set Thomas Vinterberg to helm Kursk, the Robert Rodat-scripted adaptation of the Robert Moore book A Time To Die. Casting will begin shortly for a projected fall production start in Europe. The film is based on the true story of the nuclear-powered Russian submarine, the Kursk, which sank during a training exercise in the Barents Sea in 2000. Twenty-three sailors survived the crash and desperately waited for help to arrive, as their oxygen ran out minute-by-minute.
Variety is reporting the screenplay is written by Robert Rodat and based on Robert Moore’s book ‘A Time to Die’.
Matthias is featured on the weekend edition of The Morning (De Morgen) to promote “A Bigger Splash“. We have added the digital magazine scans and first photoshoot outtakes in our gallery.
Matthias will make an appearance on ’24 Hours With…’ (24 uur met…) tonight, on the dutch network NPO3. Dutch and Belgium fans can tune on 09:55PM (local time).
THR is reporting that HBO plans on redeveloping “Lewis And Clark“. It’s still unclear if Matthias, or any of the cast, will return to the project.
HBO is all but abandoning the six-part miniseries starring Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts. “We have decided to redevelop Lewis and Clark with Michelle Ashford writing,” HBO said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, confirming that it is going back to the drawing board with the high-profile historical drama.
Ashford, who is currently serving as the showrunner on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, penned the original script with Ed Norton and John Curran (The Painted Veil). Once her rewrite comes in, the cabler will have to greenlight the project a second time. In the event that the new version does move forward, HBO will then evaluate whether or not previously shot footage is usable (sources say several episodes were filmed) and if roles will be recast.
