Alicia Vikander And Eva Green Share A Sibling Bond In First Look At Lisa Langseth Drama Euphoria

24 August 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After dabbling with blockbuster fare via Universal’s recent Jason Bourne revival, Alicia Vikander will soon circle back to the kind of low-key indies that helped put her on the map with Euphoria, a promising family drama coming by way of writer-director Lisa Langseth.

Marking Vikander’s first foray into the world of producing – she’s attached via the newly-founded Vikarious Productions – the festival-friendly pic marks a reunion with Langseth, who previously directed the so-hot-right-now Swede across both Hotel and Pure.

Euphoria, on the other hand, is acting as the filmmaker’s English-language debut, setting Vikander and Penny Dreadful star Eva Green as two sisters – Ines and Emilie – who cross paths after many years spent apart. Langseth’s feature then explores the profound journey they undertake as they set about strengthening a sisterly bond that has, for one reason or another, fallen by the wayside. It’s a relatively straightforward premise on paper, »

Alicia Vikander and Eva Green Experience ‘Euphoria’ in First Image

24 August 2016 7:44 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following her Oscar win earlier this year, Alicia Vikander not only picked up a major tentpole role in Tomb Raider, but also launched her own production company, the aptly named Vikarious Productions.

Vikander’s Pure and Hotell collaborator Lisa Langseth is writing and directing the English-language picture, which teams Vikander and Eva Green as “sisters in conflict traveling through Europe towards a mystery destination,” creating a project that the actor-producer calls “full of suffering but also full of joy, and squaring up to very important subject matter.”

Check out the image below (thanks to The Playlist) for the film also starring Charlotte RamplingCharles Dance, Adrian Lester, and Mark Stanley.

Shooting in Bavaria and Munich, Euphoria will likely premiere in 2017.

Michael Shannon Drinks Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Water’; Idris Elba to Play ‘Molly’s Game’; Oscar Isaac Is ‘A Foreigner’

9 May 2016 11:54 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The intensity of Michael Shannon‘s onscreen presence and the overwhelming (sometimes too-overwhelming) authorial control wielded by Guillermo del Toro may very well be a match made in Heaven. We should soon have a sense of their compatibility: the latter is looking to cast the former in his Fox Searchlight-backed Cold War romance, supposedly titled The Shape of Water, which has secured Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, and Richard Jenkins. [The Wrap]

Here’s the synopsis that came in last week:

We’re hearing that the fairytale, set in 1963, centers around Elisa (Hawkins), a mute janitor working at a lab where an amphibious man is being held captive. When Elisa falls in love with the creature, she devises a plan to help him escape with the assistance of her neighbor (Jenkins). The world outside of the lab, however, may prove to be more dangerous for the amphibious man than Elisa could have anticipated. »
