Alicia Vikander And James McAvoy Begin Filming ‘Submergence’ | Film News
A talented actress very much in demand, Alicia Vikander finds her schedule overflowing with opportunities.
Having had an incredible 2015, capping it off by receiving the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Danish Girl, the Swedish thesp now turns her attention to upcoming projects like Jason Bourne and Wim Wenders‘ Submergence. It has been reported that she and co-star James McAvoy have just begun filming on the latter.
Loosely based upon the J.M. Ledgard novel of the same name, Submergence follows the story of two lovers separated by thousands of miles.
McAvoy plays James More, an aquatic engineer held captive by Somalian Jihadists; Vikander plays Danielle Flinders, a woman tasked with taking a submersible to the ocean floor. As they both face dangerous situations in different circumstances, they both think back to the previous Christmas; the time they fell in love with each other.
Wim Wenders, a leading figure in New German Cinema, is taking the reins for this project and no doubt the enlarged budget will go a long way to seeing what he is capable of on a larger scale. Filming will take the actors to Africa, France, Spain and Germany, wrapping in July. With a director as artistic as Wenders and actors as vastly talented as Vikander and McAvoy, Submergence promises to be a big deal for 2016 film.
