Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Jonathan confirmed for The Mortal Instruments!

It’s a done deal! Sony Pictures and author Cassandra Clare have confirmed that Jonathan has been officially cast as Valentine Morgenstern in “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”. His headshot has been added to the official movie website. And author Cassandra Clare has written a blog about Jonathan.

Here’s an excerpt:

So this is not me posting news so much as confirming the rumors: YES, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is going to play Valentine.

I’ve liked JRM since he was in Velvet Goldmine and I have to admit that image was what sprang immediately to mind when the producer called me and said “…Jonathan Rhys Meyers?”

I was like, “Velvet Goldmine!”

And Robert, who is German and very practical, was like, “I hope you have seen things he is in since then or I will assume you do not go to the theater.”

So yes I should probably also mention that JRM plays Henry the 8th on The Tudors, and does a very good job of being charismatic, power-hungry, and cold.

Filming starts in Toronto in less than two weeks. As this is an adaption of just one book out of a series of six, there’s the possibility of more movies. The first movie is due out August 23, 2013. The Valentine character appears in the first three books and is the main antagonist.

    This is crazy. :) In a good way. Ooooh the world domination, come to Johnny already! :)
    Also, he is playing along with Jamie Campbell Bower who is charismatic and awesome too, and an expert of on-screen chemistry. Seriously, I think Jamie can have chemistry with a chair if needed. So I hope their duo will be as powerful as I expect.

    Also, what is this:
    I assume it’s a fan twitter, why is it verified? Do you know something about it?

    It’s unknown who started and runs that twitter account. While it’s verified, it’s not clear if it was really Jonathan that posted tweets or just a fan or friend of his. It’s not been updated since early January. I have never received confirmation that it’s legit, but all we can do is wait and see.
