Gemma Arterton feature to shoot late spring
A late spring shoot is currently on the cards for Like a Virgin, a new feature starring Gemma Arterton.
The project marks the directorial debut from actor Catherine Shepherd (Paddington) who has also written the screenplay, and comes from London-based Fly Film.
Kate Ogborn produces, working alongside executive producer and co-founder of Fly, Lisa Marie Russo. The film centres on Mary (Arterton) who, while inebriated from a big night out, has a visitation from the Angel Gabriel, who announces that she has been chosen to give birth to the new Messiah and thus save the worldâ€¦
Arterton is currently around halfway through an eight-week shoot on Their Finest Hour and a Half, which has been filming in locations including east London, Swansea and Freshwater West, Pembrokeshire.
Subscribers can follow Like a Virgin on PI from 21 October, with updates on crucial hires including the line producer and casting director.
