Charlotte Rampling joins Alicia Vikander in 'Euphoria'
Drama marks the first project from Vikander’s outfit, Vikarious Productions.
Charlotte Rampling is to join the cast of Euphoria, alongside previously announced stars Alicia Vikander and Eva Green. Rampling was Oscar-nominated for her leading role in 45 Years, for which she won the Silver Bear at Berlin in 2015.
Vikander also produces for Vikarious Productions, the company she recently launched along with London-based agent Charles Collier of Tavistock Wood.
The director of photography will be Rob Hardy, who teams with Vikander for a third time following Ex Machina and Testament Of Youth.
The film is set to start shooting in early August in the German Alps.
Euphoria marks the English-language directorial debut of Swedish writer-director Lisa Langseth, who previously collaborated with Vikander on two Swedish-language titles, Pure and Hotell.
Vikander, who won this year’s Oscar for best supporting actress for The Danish Girl, will star opposite Green (Casino Royale), as sisters in conflict travelling through Europe towards a mystery destination.
Euphoria is a Sweden-UK-Germany production by B-Reel Films, Vikarious Productions, Dancing Camel (Christine Ruppert), Sveriges Television, Svensk Filmindustri, Reel Ventures and Filmregionen Stockholm-Mälardalen.
It is made in collaboration with Wild Bunch Germany and in association with Dorian Media Limited with support from the Swedish Film Institute. Nordic distribution by Svensk Filmindustri.
