Gemma Arterton is to return to Shakespeare’s Globe in The Duchess of Malfi next year.

She will play the title role in the show, which will be the first production in the London venue’s new 340-seat indoor theatre, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Arterton made her professional stage debut at the venue as Rosaline in a production of Love’s Labour’s Lost in 2007.

The Duchess of Malfi will run from January 9 to February 16, 2014. It is directed by the Globe’s artistic director Dominic Dromgoole.

Arterton said: “To play the Duchess of Malfi in a magical new theatre seemed an irresistible opportunity for me. I am thrilled to be coming back to Shakespeare’s Globe where I made my stage debut and I really look forward to the adventure of performing in such an intimate and wonderful space.”

Anne Fontaine (“Perfect Mothers”, “La fille de Monaco”…) est actuellement en tournage dans le centre-ville de Rouen. Le tournage est fermé à toute personne extérieure. Les rues d’Amiens, des Boucheries-Saint-Ouen et rues adjacentes sont bloquées à la circulation. La réalisatrice tourne “Gemma Bovery”, avec Fabrice Luchini et Gemma Aterton (déjà vue dans “Tamara Drew”). Elle avait déjà posé ses caméras ans le Pays de Caux.

L’histoire : Martin est un ex-bobo parisien, reconverti plus ou moins volontairement en boulanger d’un village normand. De ses ambitions de jeunesse, il lui reste une forte capacité d’imagination, et une passion toujours vive pour la grande littérature, celle de Gustave Flaubert en particulier. On devine son émoi lorsqu’un couple d’Anglais, aux noms étrangement familiers, vient s’installer dans une fermette du voisinage. Non seulement les nouveaux venus s’appellent Gemma et Charles Bovery, mais plus encore leurs comportements semblent inspirés par les héros de Flaubert. Pour le créateur qui sommeille en Martin, l’occasion est trop belle de pétrir – outre sa farine quotidienne – le destin de personnages en chair et en os. Mais la jolie Gemma Bovery, elle, n’a pas lu les classiques, et entend bien vivre sa propre vie…

« Gemma Bovery » Réalisé par Anne Fontaine, scénario Anne Fontaine et Pascal Bonitzer, avec Fabrice Luchini, Gemma Arterton, Elsa Zylberstein, Isabelle Candelier, Jason Flemyng… Sortie prévue deuxième semestre 2014.

They join Stephen Fry in the voice cast of the movie to be directed by Alexander Williams and touted in Toronto and then AFM.

LONDON — Nicholas Hoult, Gemma Arterton and Stephen Fry have been tapped to lend their voices to the family animation feature Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen.

Alexander Williams, whose animation résumé boasts stints on The Lion King, Pocahontas and Robots, will direct from a script by Chris Brown, one of the original writers of sitcom Friends.

Production is due to get underway in September on a story that revolves around what happens in a kitchen when the humans leave. It features a feud between everyday utensils and the best silver and cutlery from opposite sides of the table.

U.K. independent sales and distribution banner Kaleidoscope (KFD) has boarded the project and taken sales duties and British distribution rights. KFD inked a deal for the movie with production banner A Polished Productions, whose producer Bob Thompson is a veteran of the BBC and LEGO and whose credits most recently include the CGI feature Ultramarines with John Hurt and Terence Stamp.

Williams described Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen as “a fantasy adventure aimed squarely at a family audience, but with enough sophisticated wit to keep the grown-ups happy.”

KFD CEO Spencer Pollard said: “We expect a lot of interest from the market, and it should be a busy time in Toronto and the upcoming AFM. The film has all the right ingredients to be a potential global theatrical family smash with excellent animation, a very fun script and A-list voice talent both for the U.K. and international market.”

Gemma Arterton is set to star in a West End musical version of the 2010 film Made in Dagenham.

The former Bond girl has been involved in early workshops for the production from a script by One Man, Two Guvnors writer Richard Bean.

It is understood Arterton would be in line to play the lead role of Rita, played in the film by Sally Hawkins.

Producers Stage Entertainment told the BBC they would “very much love her to be part of the production”.

It has not yet been announced which London theatre the musical will be staged at, but it is hoped it will play next year.

“As with all casting there are schedules to work out, but we’d very much love [Arterton] to be part of the production when it opens in the West End,” a spokesman said.

Early workshops were directed by Rupert Goold – the new artistic director of London’s Almeida Theatre – with the score written by David Arnold, who also provided the music for the Bafta-nominated film.

Made in Dagenham told the story of the machinists who went on strike in 1968 at the Ford Dagenham car factory demanding equal pay and protesting against sexual discrimination.

The character of Rita played a pivotal role in leading the strike and meeting former employment secretary Barbara Castle, leading to the Equal Pay Act 1970.

The film also starred Andrea Riseborough, Jaime Winstone and Bob Hoskins.

Neil Jordan’s Byzantium, his return to the blood-sucker genre following Interview with the Vampire, was due to open in Australian cinemas on July 25.

Not so. The distributor Rialto pulled the release this week and the fantasy thriller about mother-and -daughter vampires will go straight to DVD and Video-On-Demand.

The decision to bypass cinemas is a growing trend as distributors calculate their chances of recouping hefty marketing costs from the theatrical release are diminishing, and the waning DVD market is a less effective safety net.

Horror movies are the most problematic given the genre has never been popular in Oz, unlike the US and the UK. Read More
