Jonathan Rhys Meyers, The Tudors star, joins Vanessa Redgrave and Joely Richardson in period drama ‘The Aspern Papers’.
The British actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a gifted dramatic performer, Woody Allen highly appreciated an actors’ skills – their collaboration in “Match Point” (2005) was astounding. Rhys Meyers’ notable film credits include “Vanity Fair,” “Mission: Impossible III,” and action drama with “From Paris With Love” where he played alongside John Travolta.
The upcoming movie ‘The Aspen Papers’ is set in Venice in 1885 with Rhys Meyers portraying Morton Vint, an ambiguous young writer and publisher fascinated by iconic romantic poet Jeffrey Aspern as he strives to get his hands on the letters Aspern wrote to his beautiful mistress, Juliana (Redgrave). Now, decades later, Juliana lives in a Venetian palazzo with her niece (Richardson), whom Morton tries to seduce.
