On a hot and humid night last August, I spent the night on the San Juan, Puerto Rico set of director Brad Furman‘s (The Lincoln Lawyer) crime thriller Runner, Runner. The film stars Justin Timberlake as a Princeton student who is cheated out of his tuition money playing online poker and ends up traveling to Costa Rica to confront the on-line mastermind (Ben Affleck). The film also stars Gemma Arterton, Ben Schwartz, Dayo Okeniyi and Oliver Cooper and it was written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Rounders). For more on the film, watch the trailer.

During a break in filming, I got to participate in a group interview with Gemma Arterton. She talked about what drew her to the role, working with Timberlake and Affleck, shooting in Puerto Rico, being inspired by Gilda, and a lot more. Hit the jump for the interview. Runner, Runner opens September 27th. Read More

Gemma Arterton is one busy lady – having just finished filming a new comedy series, she is heading for France to use her newly-acquired language skills in her first French film.

Filming recently wrapped on Inside No.9, a new BBC Two comedy from Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith (Psychoville etc). The 6 x 30 series examines the extraordinary, macabre and sometimes just mundane, goings on behind the door of several very different ‘No. 9s’.

The anthology is a BBC in-house production, from seasoned comedy honcho and exec producer Jon Plowman.

Arterton will soon head for France, where she is due to being shooting Gemma Bovery, a film based on Posy Simmonds’ graphic novel – first published in The Guardian – which is in turn based on Flaubert’s classic Madame Bovary. It sees our heroine moving to Normandy to start a new life. Ruby Film & Television is the UK company involved in this international co-production. This is the second time Arterton will have starred in a Posy Simmonds film adaptation, having previously played the title role in Tamara Drewe for director Stephen Frears.

Arterton is also due to join the cast of Ned Rifle, the third in Hal Hartley’s tragi-comic trilogy about the Grim family. The feature follows on from Henry Fool (1998) and Fay Grim (2007).

She will also have to find time to voice the newly-announced family animation Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen, along with Nicholas Hoult and Stephen Fry, who will also lend their voices to the fantasy adventure about the rivalry between various kitchen utensils.

In the meantime, you can always head to the cinema, where, from 27 September, you can see Arterton in the crime thriller Runner, Runner with Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake. Or there’s always the forthcoming DVD release of the fantasy thriller Byzantium, directed by Neil Jordan and co-starring Saoirse Ronan.

Bonne chance with your French film Gemma, and come back to Blighty soon.

Mel Raido joins Gemma Arterton in the adaptation

07 August 2013 | Written by Phil de Semlyen

Tamara Drewe‘s Gemma Arterton may be gearing up to tackle another Posy Simmons graphic novel, but she can’t do it on her own. Good news, then, because Spooks and Strike Back‘s Mel Raido has signed up to join her in Anne Fontaine’s adaptation of Gemma Bovery.

Raido will play Gemma Tate’s (Arterton) ex, a roguishly charming but occasionally obnoxious food critic, who returns to Gemma’s life in the Norman village in which she’s settled. The problem? She’s since married Charlie Bovery, and her desires and duties are soon at loggerheads.

Riffing on Gustave Flaubert’s great novel Madame Bovary, the results should offer interesting cultural osmosis with Coco Before Chanel director Fontaine, Arterton and co decamping to rural France for a tale of love, lust and camembert.

“Imagine carrying so many sad memories with you from century to century,” he says of his latest film’s creatures

By Allen Barra

Two women, one in her late 30s and another perhaps in her early 20s, move into a rundown seaside hotel named Byzantium. They are pursued by menacing strangers who prove to have no connection to the police or any legitimate authorities. The atmosphere is moody, the night air neon-lit. The plot becomes increasingly ominous, and we see violent flashbacks of the same women, not years but centuries in the past.

Neil Jordan’s 17th feature film, “Byzantium,” is already confounding critics on both sides of the Atlantic. Starring Saoirse Ronan (“Atonement,” “Hannah”) and Gemma Arterton and co-starring Sam Riley and Jonny Lee Miller, “Byzantium” is adapted by Moira Buffini from her play “A Vampire Story.” The film is at once identifiable as a Jordan film but is also kind of a busman’s holiday. “There are definitely elements of my other films in this one,” he told me by phone from his home in Dublin, “but I decided not to work on this film as a writer because Moira’s adaptation of her play brought the story to the screen very well. So I was a bit more relaxed while making it.”

Jordan has dealt with vampires before, in his 1994 Anne Rice adaptation “Interview With the Vampire.” In that film, Brad Pitt’s Louis is asked if Bram Stoker’s Dracula is an accurate depiction of the vampire life. “The feverish dreams,” replies Pitt, shrugging off the question, “of a demented Irishman.” Jordan’s interest in vampires is much different from Stoker’s. “I’m very interested in the burden of memories which people carry from one generation to another. Imagine how much more of a burden that must be for creatures who live for centuries. I was intrigued by ‘Byzantium’ because this time it was two women, and the idea of a mother-daughter relationship added a whole dimension. In some ways it’s a little sad, don’t you think? All the things that human beings must carry with them from decade to decade. Imagine carrying so many sad memories with you from century to century.”

Byzantium” came out in the U.S. on June 28, and it’s just another step in Jordan’s uncommonly varied life and career. He was born in Sligo, in the shadow of Yeats’ Ben Bulben. (“Not so impressive as it sounds,” he once told me, “since virtually all of Sligo is in the shadow of Ben Bulben.”) He was raised in Dublin; his grandfather, mother and sister were all painters.

SHE’S used to attending Hollywood events, so it was no surprise to see Gemma Arterton working the red carpet at Paris Fashion Week.

By: Kirsty McCormack

The 27-year-old actress arrived at the Lanvin fashion show yesterday looking absolutely stunning in one of the designer’s black gowns.

The one-shouldered garment showcased Gemma’s curves perfectly and featured a ruffled shoudler and one long sleeve.

Gemma teamed it with a pair of black strappy heels, a matching clutch bag and a sleek hairdo.

Speaking at the Lancome Lanvin party, the ‘Quantum of Solace‘ star said of her attire: “it’s very fitted, I sort of wriggled my way into it.

“It’s nice because he designs dresses that look good on women, especially curvy women like me so I love his clothes for that reason.”

on being a guest at the fashion event, Gemma admitted that she loves people watching. “I see it as a real experience, an acting experience because there’s so many characters as fashion week, so different to the film world, which is also batty.

“I just love watching people, I feel like a bit of an outsider but it’s so nice to see all these crazy people.”
