VARIETY – Embankment Films has sold British rights to Lionsgate U.K. for romantic drama “Summerland,” starring Gemma Arterton and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Variety has been given the exclusive first-look image for the film, which has just wrapped production.

The pic is the feature debut of British playwright Jessica Swale, who won an Olivier Award for her play “Nell Gwynn,” in which Arterton and Mbatha-Raw both starred. Swale won BAFTA’s JJ Screenwriting Bursary for “Summerland” in 2012.

The film centers on fiercely independent writer Alice (Arterton) who “secludes herself in her clifftop study, debunking myths using science to disprove the existence of magic,” according to a statement.

When a spirited young man, Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is placed in her care, “his innocence and curiosity awaken Alice’s buried emotions… perhaps magic really does exist.”

The cast includes Penelope Wilton (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) and Tom Courtenay (“45 Years”), as well as rising young actors Lucas Bond (“Slumber”) and Dixie Egerickx (“The Secret Garden”).

The film is produced by Guy Heeley and Adrian Sturges, with Arterton serving as an executive producer alongside Natascha Wharton for the BFI, which helped finance the pic alongside Quickfire Films.

Embankment is handling international sales and co-representing the U.S. with the Gersh Agency.

Zygi Kamasa, CEO of Lionsgate U.K., said: “At Lionsgate we’re constantly looking for projects that nurture both established and rising British talent – and ‘Summerland’ has both of those elements. Jessica is clearly a filmmaker on the rise.” (source)

DEADLINEEXCLUSIVE: Gemma Arterton is to play Marilyn Monroe in a one-off TV comedy set against the backdrop of the 1959 rom-com Some Like It Hot.

The Their Finest star is to front Sky Arts’ Marilyn Monroe and Billy Wilder, formerly known as It’s Me, Sugar, alongside Rome’s James Purefoy, who plays Billy Wilder, as part of its Urban Myths strand.

I hear the show, which will air later this spring, is focused on hard-drinking Monroe’s rumored inability to land the ‘it’s me, sugar’ line in the film, although others suggest it was actually a line about bourbon or even a deliberate ploy by Monroe to get Wilder to rewrite the movie. Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon reportedly made side bets during filming.

It is part of the forthcoming Urban Myths season, which features The Sex Pistols vs Bill Grundy, starring Steve Pemberton, When Bowie Met Bolan (Lion TV), starring Jack Whitehall as Marc Bolan and Luke Treadaway as David Bowie, The Dali and The Cooper (Me & You Productions), starring David Suchet, Noel Fielding and Sheila Hancock and Public Enemy feat. Kev Wells (Happy Tramp). More projects are expected to be revealed shortly.

The 30-minute comedy is directed by Mindhorn and Brass Eye director Sean Foley. It is produced by LittleRock Pictures, the indie run by Zoe Rocha, who is exec producing and who is now in charge of The Fyzz Factility’s fledgling TV division.

Rocha is understood to be producing a number of other one-offs as part of the Urban Myths strand. In addition to LittleRock, she is aggressively expanding the TV slate of film firm Fyzz. The 47 Metres Down producer is currently developing a limited series based on the Paul Torday’s book The Girl On The Landing with Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes writing and James Strong directing.

SCREEN DAILY – In a quiet corner of suburban Dublin, the Bloomsbury group is bringing art to life. Paintings and drawings are dotted throughout Baldonnell House, one of several Irish locations hosting the production of a new film about literary icon Virginia Woolf.

Vita & Virginia, directed and co-written by Chanya Button (Burn Burn Burn), centres on the true story of the love affair between the acclaimed author (played by Elizabeth Debicki) and socialite/writer Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton), and how the relationship inspired Woolf’s novel Orlando. Isabella Rossellini and Rupert Penry-Jones also star.

For Arterton, who is an executive producer on the film — based on Eileen Atkins’ 1993 stage play — the story is one she has long aspired to bring to screen. “Eileen Atkins sent me a very early draft, maybe four or five years ago. I ended up showing Chanya the script on holiday.”

While many accounts of Woolf turn towards her troubled later years, this film shows her at her most vibrant, according to Arterton. “She wrote such vivid stories, full of inspiration and energy and creativity and humour and wit,” she says. “I don’t know if we’ve seen that side, because the fascination with her is always the end of her life, which is sad, I think. They were only lovers for a small period of time, but they were great friends.”

This is the actress’s second time in a producer role. “I produced a film which has yet to come out called The Escape,” she says. “My involvement comes more creatively — script stage, crew stage, getting directors and the cast in place. I was very involved in that, and various drafts of the script. Because Chanya is a friend of mine, it was very collaborative with her in terms of visual style, what we felt about this story.”

THE DAILY MAIL – Gemma Arterton was on the move.

Her new picture, The Escape, was shooting on location in London, and I was tagging along for a day of guerrilla film-making.

Led by producer Guy Heeley, the leading lady strode through the streets of London: from Fitzrovia, then Bloomsbury, across the Marylebone Road and finally into King’s Cross station, where cast and crew stopped for a lunch of salad and stew.

Then it was off again, to a park where, I’m sorry to relate, a lot of dog owners had clearly not been picking up after their mutts.

Gemma and director Dominic Savage came up with the idea of making a film about the ‘taboo’ topic of mums who leave their kids.

Arterton described her character Tara — a mother of two who is married to a businessman called Mark, played by her pal Dominic Cooper — as a ‘creative person’.

‘But she’s got absolutely no outlet for her creativity — and what that means is that Tara feels trapped — though she’s not.’

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art-trained actress (making her debut as a producer on the film) and director Savage came up with an improvised blueprint of a script, which meant that the movie often veered off in ‘varied and interesting directions’.

‘This is about a woman who walks out on her family — which isn’t usually the term that’s used. Usually the word is ‘abandoned’,’ she told me, pointing out that when a father leaves, ‘he walks out’.

‘Abandoned by my mother’ is such a strong term — and I think it’s because of this idea of ‘How could they possibly do that?’ Because women should feel: that’s why we exist. And I don’t think that’s the case.’ The last film I can think of that tackled this subject was Kramer vs. Kramer.

Gemma said filming had been intense, but both she and leading man Cooper had been exhilarated by it. ‘It makes you think of your own life,’ she said.

‘I’ve always wanted to have children,’ she reflected. But since working on The Escape, she’s been thinking: ‘Oh my God . . . do I?’

Now that she has finished filming, Gemma has moved onto rehearsals for G.B. Shaw’s Saint Joan, for the Donmar Warehouse. (source)
