‘Irma Vep’: Adria Arjona, Carrie Brownstein, Jerrod Carmichael Among 5 Cast In TV Adaptation Of Olivier Assayas’ Feature Film For HBO

Exclusively from Deadline:

Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Carrie Brownstein (The Nowwhere Inn), Jerrod Carmichael (On the Count of Three), Fala Chen (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) and Devon Ross have been cast opposite Alicia Vikander in Irma Vep, a limited series based on Olivier Assayas’ 1996 feature film.

The series, loosely based on the film, will be written and directed by Assayas and produced by the team behind HBO’s Euphoria: A24, Sam Levinson and Kevin Turen.

Feature film Irma Vep starred Maggie Cheung as herself and Jean-Pierre Leaud as a middle-aged French film director. It screened in the Un Certain Regard section of the 1996 Cannes Film Festival.

The series, which is set against the backdrop of a lurid crime thriller, follows Vikander’s Mira, an American movie star disillusioned by her career and a recent breakup who comes to France to star as Irma Vep in a remake of the French silent film classic, Les Vampires. Mira struggles as the distinctions between herself and the character she plays begin to blur and merge. Irma Vep reveals to us the uncertain ground that lies at the border of fiction and reality, artifice and authenticity, art and life.

Arjona will play Laurie, Mira’s ex-assistant and girlfriend. Things didn’t end well with Mira.

Brownstein portrays Zelda, Mira’s agent. She’s not interested in the vampires project and has far more lucrative offers for Mira.

Carmichael is Eamonn, Mira’s ex-boyfriend. He in Paris for a movie, and they haven’t seen each other since they broke up.

Chen plays Cynthia Keng, a rising star from Hong Kong hired by René Vidal to play Irma Vep’s provocative accomplice and part of the Vampires’ plans.

Ross is Revina, Mira’s assistant — a cinephile who soon will direct her first feature.

The limited series is exec produced by Assayas, Vikander, Sylvie Barthet, Levinson, Ashley Levinson, Turen through Little Lamb, Stuart Manashi, Ravi Nandan and Hallie Sekoff. Irma Vep is a Co-Production between HBO and A24.

Arjona is repped by CAA, Anonymous Content, Goodman, Genow, Schenkman, Smelkinson & Christopher. Brownstein is repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners, UTA, and Morris Yorn. Carmichael is repped by Range Media Partners and UTA. Chen is repped by UTA and Anonymous Content. Ross is repped by Next Management and Independent Talent Group.

Adria Arjona Joins Andy Garcia In Warner Bros And Plan B’s ‘Father Of The Bride’

Exclusively from Deadline:

Adria Arjona is ready to walk down the aisle with Andy Garcia. She has been tapped to play Garcia’s daughter and the bride-to-be in Warner Bros and Plan B’s reboot of Father of the Bride. Gaz Alazraki has been set to helm the studio’s new reboot, which will revolve around a Cuban-American family, with Matt Lopez penning the script.

The film will tell the story of a father coming to grips with his daughter’s upcoming wedding through the prism of multiple relationships within a big, sprawling Cuban-American family. It will be more of a rom-com than previous versions of film. While this will mark the third iteration of the story, sources say this will be more in the vein of the original Spencer Tracy pic and not the Steve Martin franchise from the 1990s.

Dede Garner and Jeremy Kleiner will produce for Plan B Entertainment. Garcia will exec produce.

Arjona’s breakout role came on Legendary’s Pacific Rim: Uprising, where she co-starred opposite John Boyega and Scott Eastwood. She would follow that up with key roles in Life of the Party, Triple Frontier and most recently in the Michael Bay action pic 6 Underground. She can be seen next in Sony’s extended Marvel Universe pic Morbius, which also stars Jared Leto and Matt Smith.

Arjona was recently tapped for the female lead in the anticipated Rogue One spinoff series Andor, which also stars Diego Luna and Stellan Skarsgard. She is repped by CAA, Anonymous Content and Goodman, Genow.
