Kylie Minogue & Gemma Arterton Are 'Walking On Sunshine' For Musical Comedy

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist November 2, 2012 at 12:22PM

It has been an interesting, arthouse-driven year for both pop star Kylie Minogue and actress Gemma Arterton. The former features in the lesbian werewolf drama "Jack and Diane" (opening today) and in one of the most talked about movies of the year, Leos Carax's "Holy Motors." As for Arterton, she's been busy on the festival circuit helping to get the word out for Neil Jordan's vampire flick "Byzantium" and the feel-good Brit comedy "Song for Marion." But the two are set to team up in something a bit more multiplex-ready.

Kylie Minogue Gemma Arterton

It has been an interesting, arthouse-driven year for both pop star Kylie Minogue and actress Gemma Arterton. The former features in the lesbian werewolf drama "Jack and Diane" (opening today) and in one of the most talked about movies of the year, Leos Carax's "Holy Motors." As for Arterton, she's been busy on the festival circuit helping to get the word out for Neil Jordan's vampire flick "Byzantium" and the feel-good Brit comedy "Song for Marion." But the two are set to team up in something a bit more multiplex-ready.

Minogue and Arterton will star in "Walking On Sunshine," which is not a biopic on Katrina & The Waves. Instead, it tells the story of a mother and daughter who fall in love with the same man in Spain, all powered by songs of the '80s for some reason. And oh yeah, there will be dancing! The film comes from "Streetdance 3D" helmers by Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini (which isn't the most ringing of endorsements), while choreographer John O'Connell ("Moulin Rouge!," "Romeo + Julliet") will get the jazz hands going here.

As you might guess, this isn't up our alley at all and lord knows it sounds like it has the potential to be pretty garish. But Minogue fans and Moms will likely be excited. Pre-production is underway, and like everything else this week, it's being repped at AFM. [The Wrap]
