Though she’s now the world’s next Lara Croft, Oscar Winner/2015 breakout star Alicia Vikander is starting her own production company, perhaps in part as a means of ensuring that smaller, non-Lara Croft-like projects continue to be a consistent part of her career. Teaming with her agent Charles Collier, the two have launched the company Vikarious Productions, whose first film has also been announced. (They plan to produce two others in the coming two years.)
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vikander will be starring in the film Euphoria, in which she and Penny Dreadful/The Dreamers star Eva Green will play sisters with a dysfunctional relationship traveling “towards a mystery destination.” Vikander described the film (in equally vague terms):
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.
This particular movie is written and directed by Lisa Langseth, who directed Vikander in two previous Swedish-language (Euphoria is her first English-language feature) films of hers — Hotell and Pure.
