Gemma Arterton and French actor Fabrice Luchini are set to star in a film adaptation of the comic strip “Gemma Bovery”.
“Coco Avant Chanel” and “Two Mothers” director Anne Fontaine helms the project which is described as a reimagining of Gustave Flaubert’s “Madame Bovary”.
The story deals with the last few months in the life of an English expatriate living in Normandy. Shooting kicks off this Summer.
Posy Simmonds created the comic, and is the author of “Tamara Drewe” which was also adapted as a film that starred Arterton and Luke Evans.
