A biopic of Karl Lagerfeld will star polyglot actor Daniel Brühl, according to Screen Daily.
The six-part Disney+ series is currently shooting in France and Italy, and soon in Monaco.
Mainly set in Paris during the 1970s, Kaiser Karl will follow Lagerfeld as he competes with fellow designers Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé and rises up the ranks of high fashion.
Alongside Brühl, the cast includes Theodore Pellerin, Arnaud Valois, Alex Lutz and Agnes Jaoui.
Kaiser Karl is a co-production between Disney+ and France’s Gaumont and Jour Premier. Director Jérôme Salle will be the “artistic mastermind” behind the series, Screen Daily said.
