Move over Mamma Mia!

Hannah Arterton, 25, might well feel as if she is Walking On Sunshine, acting and spinning this feel-good movie. She talks to Young Performer film editor Nicola Venning.

Q: Are the characters Taylor and Maddie like you and your sister, actress Gemma Arterton?
A: “Not really. Gemma and I share the same passions and are a bit more similar. We’re best friends — we talk all the time, and we love going to the cinema and theatre together.”

Q: Is there any competition between you for roles?
A: “No, not at all. Our casting is quite different. We look quite different and I think our energies are very different. I can’t imagine playing any of her parts and vice-versa.”

Walking On Sunshine dances into cinemas on 13 June (UK).

ENGLISH actress Gemma Arterton challenges stereotypes in a blood-soaked Brothers Grimm retread, writes Vicky Roach.

> Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans, Prince of Persia … you’ve done a few action films, but this is the first time you get to take centre stage.

I have always enjoyed being physical – I did a lot of physical theatre and fight training at drama school – but you rarely get the opportunity to do that in film. Usually, it’s about helping the guy, or you pick up a dagger (mimics a feeble, limp-wristed grip) and go: ‘Eeewww, I suppose I had better hit somebody with this.’ I am always looking for strong female roles so this fitted the bill.

> You do look pretty confident with that crossbow.

It was quite nerve-racking. There is one particular sequence where I have to fight five guys. It was all hand-held, so there was not really much room for error. I had to get punched and then I had to get back up again, and then punched and back up again. Choreographically that’s quite difficult. I was so nervous I wouldn’t get it right – not because I would have to do it over and over again, but because my ego would have been bruised. It would have been like: ‘Oh, the girl can’t do it.’ But I pulled it off and there was something so satisfying about that. Read More

IM Global has reported a strong response to the comedy-musical Walking On Sunshine with Kylie Minogue and Gemma Arterton attached to star.

Kylie Minogue and Gemma Arterton are set to star in the 3D 1980s-fueled musical Walking on Sunshine for the UK’s Vertigo Films.

CEO Stuart Ford and president of international sales Jonathan Deckter have closed deals in: Germany (Square One), Italy (Eagle), Japan (Gaga), Russia (Paradise/MGN), Scandinavia (Nordisk) and South Korea (Entermode).

IM Global has licensed rights in: Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Czech Republic (Media Pro), Poland (Monolith), Taiwan (Applause), Hong Kong (Golden Scene), Switzerland (Impuls) and the Middle East (Gulf). EIM has taken airline rights.

Producer Vertigo Entertainment holds UK rights and talks are ongoing in other territories.

“Distributors are responding to the film’s irrepressible feel-good factor and 1980s nostalgia,” IM Global CEO Stuart Ford said. “The film also has a terrific international feel and it’s the sort of movie audiences are craving in the current global climate.”

Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini — directors of British indie hit StreetDance 3D and StreetDance 2 — are directing the film.

The Hollywood Reporter says Walking on Sunshine (set to pop hits from the 1980s), “takes place in present-day Spain in a beautiful coastal village. Amanda is getting married to the gorgeous Raf and has invited her sister, Taylor, to the wedding. Unbeknownst to Amanda, however, Raf is Taylor’s ex-holiday flame and the love of her life.”

StreetDance 3D, released in 2010, earned north of $17 million and featured debut performances by Britain’s Got Talent stars George Sampson, Diversity and Flawless. It was a production of Vertigo in association with BBC Films.

IM Global’s slate also includes The Butler, headlining Forest Whitaker; Dead Man Down, starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace; Welcome the Punch, starring James McAvoy; and Before Midnight.

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Kylie Minogue and Gemma Arterton are lined up to star in the upcoming musical comedy “Walking On Sunshine,” for Vertigo Films, a person familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

Now in pre-production, the film is set to be directed by Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini and is being sold at this week’s American Film Market by IM Global. Giwa and Pasquini previously directed “StreetDance 3D.”

Walking On Sunshine” is set to hit pop songs of the 1980s and tells the story of a mother and daughter who fall in love with the same man in Spain. The filmmakers brought in John O’Connell (“Moulin Rouge“) as the musical choreographer.

An Australian pop star turned actress, Minogue, could most recently be seen on the big screen in “Holy Motors,” which was in award competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Arterton has a long list of credits to her name, including “Byzantium” and “Song For Marion.”
