Irma Vep Australia Premiere Tues 7 June on Binge



Irma Vep, an eight-episode limited drama series created, written, and directed by Emmy® nominee Olivier Assayas (Carlos) and starring Academy Award® Winner Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl), will premiere in Australia on 7 June on Binge.

Mira (Vikander) is a disillusioned American movie star who travels to France to play “Irma Vep” in a remake of the French silent film classic “Les Vampires.” Mira struggles as the lines between herself and the character she plays blur and merge against the backdrop of a gruesome crime thriller. The series will have its world premiere as an Official Selection at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

The limited series is based on the 1996 film of the same name by Olivier Assayas. Assayas is a French filmmaker who has established himself as a key figure in international contemporary cinema. Among his most celebrated films are: Summer Hours, which The New York Times named one of the “Best Films of the Twenty-First Century (So Far)”; Demonlover; Clean; Carlos, which won a Golden Globe® for Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and received two Emmy® nominations, including Outstanding Direction for a Mini-Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special; Clouds of Sils Maria, for which Kristen Stewart won the Cesar for Best Supporting Act

In addition to Vikander as Mira, the cast includes Vincent Macaigne as René Vidal, Jeanne Balibar as Zoe, Devon Ross as Regina, Lars Eidinger as Gottfried, Vincent Lacoste as Edmond Lagrange, Nora Hamzawi as Carla, Adria Arjona as Laurie, Carrie Brownstein as Zelda, Tom Sturridge as Eamonn, Byron Bowers as Herman, Fala Chen as Cynthia Keng, Hippolyte Girardot as Robert Danjou, Alex Descas as Gregory Desormeaux and Antoine Reinartz as Jeremie.
