It would seem that Gemma Arterton has a thing for the works of author Posy Simmonds. The actress sashayed across the screen in Stephen Frears' adaptation of the writer's "Tamara Drewe" a couple of years back, and now it looks like she's set to lead another one of Simmonds' books as it heads to the movies.

It would seem that Gemma Arterton has a thing for the works of author Posy Simmonds. The actress sashayed across the screen in Stephen Frears' adaptation of the writer's "Tamara Drewe" a couple of years back, and now it looks like she's set to lead another one of Simmonds' books as it heads to the movies.

French actor Fabrice Luchini revealed to Allocine that he'll be starring with Arterton in "Gemma Bovery," which Anne Fontaine ("Two Mothers," "Coco Before Chanel") confirmed she will direct. A reimagining of Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary" (duh), the story is told in flashback, detailing the tragicomic last few months in the life of the titular character, an English expatriate living in Normandy. The setting is contemporary and nods to Flaubert's novel overt, so perhaps it will be a bit of fun for those looking to shake up the literary canon.

Production is set to get underway this summer, which means you can probably catch up with both the original book and then the graphic novel before this arrives.
