The 12th Man filming details announced

Variety recently reported more details on the production of “The 12th Man”. Jonathan is still attached to the film in a supporting role, which is already in production.

Co-produced by Norway’s Motion Blur (co-owned by Zwart), the $6.8 million tells the story of Norwegian war hero Jan Baalsrud, who was one of 12 Norwegian resistance fighters crossing the North Sea on a fishing boat, to blow up the Bardufoss Airport in March 1943, during the Nazi occupation. Their boat is discovered, and the saboteurs blow it up, trying to escape in a smaller boat. But 11 of them are captured, and killed by the enemy; only 25-year-old Baalsrud manages to escape, and after hiding in a snow cave on the fjell for two months, he is able to cross the border to neutral Sweden.
[…]
Starring Thomas Gullestad as Baalsrud and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, most of the film will be shot in the Troms region in collaboration with Norwegian regional film center FilmCamp. It will be released in the Scandinavian countries on Nov. 10, 2017, by Nordisk Film Distribution. Denmark’s TrustNordisk handles international sales.
[…]
Dutch-born Zwart made has made several films in the US, including such movies as “Karate Kid” (2010), which grossed more than $350 million worldwide. Most recently he signed “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” (2013), and besides his Norwegian feature, he is in pre-production with the Keanu Reeves starrer ”Rally Car.”

Jonathan to be introduced in season 4B of The Vikings

From a recent interview with creator Michael Hirst, comes news that Jonathan will appear in season 4B of “The Vikings”. Since the announcement of the news Jonathan was joining the cast as a season 5 regular last March, there’s been a lot of speculation on what character he might be playing. Hirst has had a long professional career with Jonathan, as the series creator and head writer of “The Tudors”.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers has signed on to star in season five but will viewers meet him in 4B?
Yes, we introduce him and set the scene for the next season. He’s going to be a major player. Personally it’s exciting because it brings us back together from Tudor times. Jonny’s a great actor and another wonderful presence on screen, so I am thrilled that he’s joined us and I can’t wait to explore his character.
