Alicia Vikander Plays an Actress Playing Vampire Irma Vep in HBO Thriller — Get Premiere Date

Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander plays an actress who really sinks her teeth into the role of a vampire in HBO‘s upcoming crime thriller Irma Vep, which is now set for a Monday, June 6 at 9/8c premiere.

Created, written and directed by Olivier Assayas, based on his 1996 film of the same name (which starred Maggie Cheung), the HBO/A24 co-production stars  Vikander (The Danish Girl) as Mira, an American movie star disillusioned by her career and a recent breakup, who comes to France to star as (anagram alert!) Irma Vep in a remake of the circa 1915 French silent film classic, Les Vampires.

Set against the backdrop of a lurid crime thriller, Mira struggles as the distinctions between herself and the creature of the night she plays begin to blur and merge. As Mira navigates this “identity crisis,” Irma Vep promises to reveal “the uncertain ground that lies at the border of fiction and reality, artifice and authenticity, art and life.”

Prior to its HBO debut, Irma Vep will make its world premiere as an Official Selection at the Festival De Cannes 2022 (being held May 17-28).
