Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Dracula) is in final negotiations to star in Blue on Blue, a cop drama based on a true story. Jon Amiel (The Core) is attached to direct from a script by David Chisholm. (Chisholm, Edward Brehm, and Ethan Cohan have story credit.) Filming is expected to begin in July 2017.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ credits include Roots, Mission Impossible III, Match Point, and Bend It Like Beckham. Blue on Blue director Jon Amiel and Rhys Meyers previously worked together on episodes of The Tudors.
Commenting on Rhys Meyers’ potential involvement, producer Lawrence Meyers of Meyers Media Group said, “Jon and I are very excited that our script has attracted such a household name to star in Blue on Blue. Jonathan is a great actor with a wide range of roles on his filmography.”
The Plot: Inspired by true events, Blue on Blue tells the story of Raymond Peele, a corrupt cop to be played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who uses his extensive charm and guile to ensnare an unsuspecting rookie cop in a daring web of deceit and betrayal. Peele’s ruthless ambition in the cover up of another cop’s murder triggers a gang war that threatens to destroy the naive rookie, who will soon discover that the greatest danger to him lies within his own department.
