“Space Station 76” in SXSW Film 2014 Lineup

Matt’s new film “Space Station 76” will be premiering at SXSW Film 2014 between March 7-15, 2014 in Austin, TX. For more information about attending, please click here.

SPACE STATION 76 is a comedic drama about a group of people (and several robots) living on a space station in a 1970’s-version of the future. When a new Assistant Captain arrives, she inadvertently ignites tensions among the crew, prompting them to confront their darkest secrets. Barely contained lust, jealousy, and anger all bubble to the surface, becoming just as dangerous as the asteroid that’s heading right for them.

Matt Bomer Will Play Montgomery Clift In 2015 Biopic

Congratulations Matt! We’re so happy for you.

Matt Bomer will portray screen legend Montgomery Clift in a newly announced biopic. IMDB listed the role on Bomer’s filmography a few days ago, and a producer associated with the film confirmed the news on Wednesday.

When curious fans asked about the casting rumor on Twitter, producer Michael Din responded to say that Bomer has indeed landed the lead role in the movie, titled “Monty Clift.” Din said the project will begin shooting in 2014, and IMDB lists “Clift” as a 2015 release. Producers also reportedly confirmed the casting news to ET.

The movie’s IMDB page indicates the biopic will center on Clift’s relationship with Elizabeth Taylor following the filming of 1951’s “A Place in the Sun.” (The Oscar-nominated actor carried on a relationship with choreographer Jerome Robbins.)

Matt Bomer’s new film “B.O.O.”

DreamWorks Animation is hard at work filling out the voice casts for two of its upcoming animated features with big name stars joining the ranks of both “B.O.O. (Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations)” and “Penguins of Madagascar.” In two separate scoops, The Wrap reports that Matt Bomer and Rashida Jones will join Seth Rogen and Melissa McCarthy in ‘B.O.O.’ while John Malkovich and Benedict Cumberbatch will become part of “Penguins of Madagascar,” an offshoot of the bizarrely popular “Madagascar” franchise. DreamWorks Animation has always had a history of casting insanely popular, of-the-moment stars in its animated features, and these decisions seem to reinforce that.

In ‘B.O.O.,’ Rogen (according to The Wrap), “stars as a new ghost named Jackson Moss who works as an agent at B.O.O., a top-secret government agency that protects humans from evil hauntings. When he and his partner Watts (McCarthy) uncover a plot to destroy B.O.O., they must use their skills to defeat the agency’s Most Wanted Haunter and his powerful ghost army, and save the world.” Sounds needlessly convoluted! According to the same report, “Jones will play Rogen’s ex-wife, while Bomer will play her new husband, who’s the perfect step-dad to Rogen’s son.”

The movie will be directed by Anthony Leonidis, whose previous film “Igor” set the world record for number of S&M jokes in a movie supposedly made for children, from a script by Tom Wheeler, who wrote the under-appreciated “Puss in Boots” for DreamWorks Animation. Bomer has roles coming up in both “A Winter’s Tale” and “A Normal Heart,” while it has recently been announced that Jones will be leaving “Parks and Recreation” in the middle of next season.

“The Penguins of Madagascar” is currently scheduled for a March 27th 2015 release date while “B.O.O. (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations)” spooks theaters nationwide on June 5th 2015.

Matt Bomer Attending “Superman: Unbound” World Premiere

Matt Bomer, star of USA Network’s hit series White Collar, has joined the panel for the World Premiere of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Superman: Unbound this Friday, March 29 at 6:00 p.m. as part of the WonderCon marquee evening event in the Anaheim Convention Center.

As the voice of Superman, Bomer will headline the post-screening panel discussion alongside Castle star Molly Quinn (the voice of Supergirl), producer/director James Tucker (Justice League), screenwriter Bob Goodman (Warehouse 13, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) and eight-time Emmy Award-winning dialogue director Andrea Romano (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns). Moderator Gary Miereanu will guide the proceedings, offering glimpses into future DC Universe Animated Original Movies, and exclusive prizes for some lucky fans in attendance.

In Superman: Unbound, a destructive force is devastating planets across the galaxy – with Earth next in its sights – and even Superman may not be capable of halting the destruction alone. Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 DC Comics release “Superman: Brainiac,” the film’s stellar voicecast also includes John Noble (Fringe, The Lord of the Rings films) as Brainiac, and Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois Lane. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Superman: Unbound will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand and For Download on May 7, 2013.

Prior to the premiere, the Superman: Unbound panelists Quinn, Tucker, Goodman and Romano will sign WonderCon-exclusive mini-posters from 3:00-4:00 p.m. at the DC Entertainment booth.

Update! Here is another article, which features an interview with Matt.

In order to curate the collection, which involved selecting suit and shirting fabrics, Bomer channeled his character’s retro aesthetic. “Neal Caffrey’s look was the brain child of [White Collar creator] Jeff Eastin; he had this whole idea of the character having a fedora and his look being inspired by the Rat Pack so that’s what we worked off of for the pilot,” the actor said. “Every season, we create a board of looks I like and draw inspiration from everything from the Rat Pack to Cary Grant and Jack Kerouac. We did Harry Belafonte when we started getting into the summer months. [For the Caffrey Collection], we basically went through the wardrobe archives and found looks that we liked.”
