45 Years star Charlotte Rampling has inked a deal to join Euphoria, the family drama coming by way of writer-director Lisa Langseth.
There, she’ll join Eva Green and Alicia Vikander, who is also attached to produce the feature via her newfound Vikarious Productions. Plans are in place for Langseth to fire up production in early August, when the director’s English-language debut will set up shop in the German Alps. Charting the story of two sisters in conflict – played here by Vikander and Green – Euphoria follows their meandering journey through mainland Europe toward a mysterious destination.
Elsewhere, Alicia Vikander has also emerged as an early frontrunner to join one of two competing Agatha Christie movies at Sony and Paramount. That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Vikander has become attached to Sony’s nascent feature film, while Paramount is hosting talks with Emma Stone. As opposed to adaptations of Christie’s literary work, each project is said to revolve around the late novelist and playwright herself, who flew in the face of the ‘household wife’ stereotype of the time and went on to cross paths with the likes of Sherlock Holmes and Winston Churchill.
Rooted in 1926, Sony and Paramount have reportedly zeroed in on the 11-day window before Agatha Christie went missing and considering that both studios will need permission from the Christie estate, Vikander and Stone’s potential casting remains up in the air for now.
Circling back to Euphoria, expect Lisa Langseth’s English-language feature to step before the cameras in August.
