“Valerian” and “Suicide Squad” actress Cara Delevingne has signed on to co-star with Orlando Bloom in Amazon’s new fantasy-noir series “Carnival Row”.
Set in The Burgue, a neo-Victorian city where mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland and have gathered. This is leading to rising tension between citizens and the growing immigrant population.
The investigation of a string of unsolved murders begins to eat away at whatever peace still exists. Delevingne will play faerish refugee Vignette Stonemoss who deals with both rampant human prejudice and secrets that have followed her to this new place.
The project, which is getting an eight-episode first season, marks the first series regular roles for both Delevingne and Bloom. Rene Echevarria, Paul McGuigan and Travis Beacham will all executive produce.
The series is scheduled to begin filming this Fall for a 2019 release.
