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.”

Yesterday night (February 18) Gemma attended the 2018 EE British Academy Film Awards, held at the Royal Albert Hall in London. She walked the red carpet together with the ‘Original Dagenham Girls’ Gwen Davis And Eileen Pullen. A number of other A-listers arrived at the awards with activists as their plus ones, and everyone wore black in support of the Time’s Up movement.

Gemma looked splendid in a black Alberta Ferretti gown. During the night she presented the Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer award, together with Lily James (and they were such cuties together!). Several photos from the red carpet, show, backstage and press room have now been added to the gallery. In case of more additions be sure to keep our twitter checked @GArtertonOnline!
