Gemma Arterton Is Gemma Bovery Because Tamara Drewe Just Wasn’t Enough

I loved the film of Posy Simmonds‘ Tamara Drewe, I can tell you. It was all kinds of fun and I think Stephen Frears nailed the casting of the lead when he handed the role to Gemma Arterton.

Now Arterton is set to make another film based on Simmonds’ comics.

Director Anne Fontaine has told AlloCine that she’ll be directing a film of Gemma Bovery, Simmonds’ spin on Madame Bovary; then Fabrice Luchini has gone on to tell them he’s in the running for a role in the film, where he’d be acting opposite:

British atomic bomb, Gemma Arterton.

Rather an atomic bomb than a rose, I suppose.

Gemma Bovery was serialised in The Guardian then collected. I remember Rich loving it as a serial, but I came along a bit late so I caught up with it as a book and always kind of wished I had the week-to-week anticipation that I’d missed out on.

Arterton and Simmonds could have a nice Lynch-Maclachlan thing going on. Maybe Arterton will play one of the leads in Mrs. Weber’s Omnibus one day… I’d like to see that, sure.

Incidentally, Anne Fontaine’s next is Two Mothers, which will feature Robin Wright Penn and Naomi Watts sleeping with one another’s sons. Here’s the trailer for that.
