Though Hollywood is not in danger of losing its love for period dramas any time soon, there’s often a push these days to give it a bit of a twist. Thank heavens, then, that Nora Ephron and Sony have, of all places, ITV to turn to for a new project. Because the writer/director is now busy adapting 2008 miniseries Lost in Austen for the big screen.

The series – written by Guy Andrews – followed Amanda Price (Jemima Rooper), a lifelong Jane Austen fan who finds her mundane London reality suddenly swapping places with her favourite author’s storyline from Pride and Prejudice. After discovering that a small door in her flat leads to Elizabeth Bennet (Gemma Arterton)’s world, the two women trade places, only to find that the switch makes things more complicated for both of them.

Naturally, Ephron plans to switch the setting to New York, but with Sam Mendes on board as a producer, we’ll be hoping it maintains the requisite decorum. There’s no word on when it’ll get started, but Ephron will be behind the camera as usual. The film may find itself overlapping a bit with the similarly themed Austenland, wherein Keri Russell plays a modern girl given tickets to an Austen-style immersive holiday, complete with Mr Darcy type (JJ Feild). That’s directed by Jerusha Hess, and based on Shannon Hale’s novel.

These pictures of some of Britain’s most beautiful actresses will feature in a new exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.

The images of Rosamund Pike, Sienna Miller and Gemma Arterton, newly acquired by the gallery, are among 39 pictures in The Actress Now display, opening on October 20.

Photographer Sarah Dunn revealed how she broke through Pike’s “very proper” demeanour. She said: “I just told her a dirty joke to get that reaction. She’s very proper, Rosamund, which is what I love about her. I had to be very cheeky.”

Elisabeth Hoff, who photographed Sienna Miller, said: “She didn’t have an entourage and so it was very free and very raw. Although she is really famous she did not come with lots of baggage.”

Gemma Arterton talked briefly about Byzantium when she attended the Burberry Prorsum.

Arterton had weather on her mind. “I’m glad it’s not too hot today — can you imagine, we’d melt in this plastic tent,” she said. “Everyone is wearing leather and tweed, so I’m grateful the good old English weather came through.” The bubbly Arterton is headed to Dublin next week to begin filming “Byzantium,” directed by Neil Jordan. “I’m playing Saoirse Ronan’s mum, would you believe? That makes me feel old.”

Thesp lands male lead in Neil Jordan pic
By Justin Kroll

Caleb Landry Jones has landed the male lead in “Byzantium” directed by Neil Jordan.

The pic currently stars Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton and is based on the Moira Buffini play.

Story revolves around a mother and daughter who are vampires and arrive in a small British town revealing their secret to the town. Jones plays a teenager dying of leukemia which in turns forces him to struggle with his mortality, causing Saorsie Ronan’s character to struggle with her own immortality.

Buffini also penned the script with Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley producing.

Jones was most recently seen in Fox’s “X-Men: First Class” and can be seen next in the Universal/Working Title co-production “Contraband” starring Mark Wahlberg.

He is repped by Paradigm, Untitled and Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal Laviolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman.

If you’ve picked up the new issue of Grazia – out today! – you’ll know Gemma Arterton is on a mission to save the world, win an Oscar and have a baby. Oh yes.

But first things first. When we sat down to chat with the A-list actress, Gemma revealed her plans to tackle climate change by protecting the rainforest. ‘Deforestation is responsible for as much greenhouse gas emissions as all the world’s cars, planes, trains and ships put together,’ she says. And right now, with a new highway slicing through one of the last densely forested areas of the Amazon, the future of the planet is very much in danger – whenever a road appears in Brazil, loggers quickly follow.

Fortunately, Gemma’s got there first. As an ambassador for the Sky Rainforest Rescue project in partnership with WWF, she’s helping to create sustainable partnerships that prove the trees are worth more alive than dead. Go Gem!

Here’s where you come in. Photographs documenting Gemma’s trip to the Amazon will appear as part of a collaborative exhibition with the acclaimed Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado later this year. So for your chance to win a pair of tickets to the VIP launch party and enjoy a caipirinha with Ms Arterton, just answer the question below…
