Better Late than Never- HBO’s 'Irma Vep' is Finally Here!
As per the trailer, Vikander is the iconic actor who is tired of leading in blockbusters that provide no acting challenge. She hopes for a transformation after signing on to manifest the title character, a part she has been longing to portray.
As she kicks off with the role, the line between reality and fiction starts to fade as Mira battles to catch the world surrounding her.
There is a distinction between the initial and the current films; Irma Vep, 1996 had its leading actress, Maggie Cheung, from Hong Kong, while the recent Irma Vep centers around an American actress.
