We now have more details of the previously reported news that Gemma Arterton is to lead the stage adaptation of the hit film Made in Dagenham in the West End. Adrian Der Gregorian will also star in the Rupert Goold directed musical comedy, with a book by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors), music by Grammy winner David Arnold (Sherlock) and lyrics by Olivier winner Richard Thomas (Royal Opera’s Anna Nicole). Performances will begin at the Adelphi Theatre on October 9 with opening night set for November 5.

Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning Rita O’Grady (Arterton) is just trying to get her husband Eddie (Der Gregorian) out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change forever when it’s announced that the girls in the sewing room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to “unskilled.” Quickly drawing on a strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?

Design will be by Olivier winner Bunny Christie and choreography by Aletta Collins.

Bond girl Gemma Arterton is set to star in the stage adaption of Made in Dagenham. According to the Daily Mail ‘s Baz Bamigboye, the musical, directed by Rupert Goold, will open at the West End’s Adelphi Theatre in the fall, after The Bodyguard ends its run.

Based on the 2010 film of the same name, Made in Dagenham tells the tale of the female machinists who went on strike in 1968 at the U.K.’s Ford Dagenham car factory demanding equal pay and protesting against sexual discrimination. Arterton will star as Rita, who leads her co-workers to strike.

Arterton recently appeared in a revival of The Duchess of Malfi. She made her professional stage debut at London’s Globe Theatre in 2007 as Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost. Other London theater credits include The Master Builder and The Little Dog Laughed. Her TV and film credits include Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, St Trinian’s, The Disappearance of Alice Creed, Hansel and Gretel and Runner Runner.

Vampires battling werewolves? That’s nothing compared to the craziness of the Monty Python troupe’s newest comedy.

Back in 2012, we reported that writer-director-actor Terry Jones (Monty Python and the Holy Grail) and the Monty Python team were working on a new sci-fi comedy called Absolutely Anything. Now, thanks to Deadline, we have some new details about the long-gestating project.

Underworld‘s Kate Beckinsale has been cast as the potential love interest for Simon Pegg’s character, presumably the role for which Gemma Arterton was originally rumored. Beckinsale and Pegg are joined by comedian Eddie Izzard, Sanjeev Bhaskar (Notting Hill), Robin Williams, and Joanna Lumley (The Wolf of Wall Street).

Producer Ben Timlett said of Beckinsale’s casting, “We are over the moon to welcome Kate Beckinsale to our brilliant cast. She’s perfect in the role of Catherine and joins some of the best names in comedy. Terry Jones and Gavin Scotts’ script is laugh out loud and we look forward to bringing it to a worldwide audience.”

Deadline provides the following synopsis for the film: “Pegg plays a disillusioned school teacher who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens watching from space. The aliens are voiced by Jones and his Python co-horts John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Michael Palin. Struggling with the new-found powers, he calls upon his loyal canine companion Dennis (voiced by Williams) to help him along the way. Mishap after mishap finally leads him to an ultimate conundrum: Should he choose the girl (Beckinsale) or the dog?”

That premise sounds incredibly bizarre, which is exactly what you want from a Monty Python outing.

Gemma Arterton and Tim Roth are among the starry cast assembling on The Keys to the Street, which has a screenplay by acclaimed director Christopher Nolan.

Max Irons and Sebastian Koch are also on board the feature, which is a big screen adaptation of the psychological thriller by Ruth Rendell.

Currently slated for a summer shoot in London, the story centres on a woman who, having escaped from her violent boyfriend, becomes embroiled in an affair with a man who is not what he seems.

The producer is Steve Norris, who is working alongside LA-based Gail Mutrux of Pretty Pictures; Czechoslovakian director Julius Sevcik will direct.

Nolan has written the screenplay along with Michael Stokes; the Memento director has been nurturing the project – originally under the auspices of studio giant Fox – for some time but reportedly had to attend to the small matter of directing Batman Begins in 2005 instead.
