Since her breakthrough as a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace, Gemma Arterton has moved on apace, mixing mega-budget Hollywood with low-cost Isle of Man. Craig McLean meets an actress destined not merely to be remembered as Strawberry Fields for ever.

June 2009, Shepperton Studios, Surrey. On the set of Clash of the Titans, a toga-clad Gemma Arterton is gracefully evoking the aura of a mysterious spiritual guide while clutching a script and an iPhone. She is playing the ‘wise and ethereal’ Io in this big-budget remake of the cult 1981 film based on the myth of Perseus, Zeus’s mortal son who leads a band of warriors to defeat Hades, battling Medusa and the Kraken along the way. She shares the screen with Avatar’s Sam Worthington (as Perseus), Liam Neeson (Zeus), Ralph Fiennes (Hades) and, courtesy of the 85 special-effects and animation teams employed by the director Louis Leterrier, a menagerie of fantastical creatures.

FemaleFirst reports the recent words pronounced by Gemma Arterton on her ‘former’ role as Cathy in Wuthering Heights:

Gemma Arterton is not starring in a big screen remake of Wuthering Heights.
It had been reported that Arterton was all set to star as Catherine Earnshaw in the Andrea Arnold directed movie alongside Ed Westwick as Heathcliff.
Speaking to MSN.com the actress said:”I was hoping that that would work out, but actually she’s looking for a pure Yorkshire lass – so any Yorkshire lasses out there who want to be Cathy in Wuthering Heights, she’s doing open auditioning.”
She added: “I think she [Arnold] will make the best Wuthering Heights film ever, she’s such an amazing director.”

Arnold, who won an Oscar back in 2005 for her short film Wasp, will be adding her version of Heights to the numerous others, including the Laurence Olivier classic from 1939, and Ralph Fiennes’ stab back in 1992. Read More

Success of the Twilight saga books and films inspire new productions of Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.

The Brontës are back in fashion – with a bit of help from Bella Swan. New films of Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre will shoot next spring, and a script about the teenage fantasies of the four Brontë siblings is in the works.

The film-makers are piggybacking off the success of the Twilight saga, which has sparked a renewed enthusiasm among financiers for gothic romance; the Brontës in particular. Wuthering Heights is one of Twilight heroine Bella Swan’s favourite books, frequently referenced in the third episode Eclipse, whose storyline is inspired by Emily Brontë’s only novel. Read More
