THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Oscar winner Alicia Vikander and her London-based agent Charles Collier of Tavistock Wood have launched production firm Vikarious Productions.
The company’s first film is Euphoria, a production with Sweden’s B-Reel Films, that will start shooting in the German Alps in early August. It is the English-language directorial debut of award-winning Swedish writer/director Lisa Langseth, who previously collaborated with Vikander on two Swedish-language titles, Pure and Hotell.
Vikander, who won this year’s best supporting actress Oscar for The Danish Girl, will star in it with Eva Green (Casino Royale) as sisters in conflict traveling through Europe towards a mystery destination.
Said Vikander: “Euphoria is Lisa’s third film as writer and director. I have worked with her on each of them, and I jumped at the chance to do so again.”
She added: It’s a uniquely European approach, enabling me to work with a great Swedish team alongside my colleagues in London. It is a profound story about the journey of two estranged sisters, full of suffering but also full of joy, and squaring up to very important subject matter. It also has compelling female voices and is packed to the rafters with female talent both sides of the camera.”
She said Vikarious plans to produce two further titles at a similar budget within the next two years.
