The series has now been scheduled to make its debut on Monday, June 6 on HBO and HBO Max.

“Set against the backdrop of a lurid crime thriller, it will center around an American movie star named Mira as she struggles as the distinctions between herself and the character she plays begin to blur and merge,” reads the logline. Vikander will be taking on the role Mira, a movie star “who is disillusioned by her career and a recent breakup, who moves to France to star as Irma Vep in a remake of the French silent film classic, Les Vampires.”

The Irma Vep miniseries is being written and directed by acclaimed French filmmaker Olivier Assayas. Joining Vikander are 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. Oscar nominee Kristen Stewart is also reportedly set to appear in a small role.

The original film starred Hong Kong actress Maggie Cheung and Jean-Pierre Léaud with Cheung portraying herself. It premiered at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival and earned positive reviews from critics.
