Gemma Arterton readies to film Summerland
Gemma Arterton is preparing to film a period feature, Summerland, in East Sussex in September.
The film is set during the Second World War and centres on Alice (Arterton), a fiercely independent writer.
Consumed by her work and haunted by a past love, her outlook on life changes when she takes in Frank, a young evacuee.
The cast includes Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton. The feature marks the directorial debut of Olivier Award-winning playwright Jessica Swale, who has also written the screenplay.
Guy Heeley of Shoebox Films produces.
