Gemma Arterton in Tamara Drewe

A live-action feature adaptation of Posy Simmonds' acclaimed graphic novel Tamara Drewe. Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) will play Drewe, a sexy flirt who returns to her small country village and stirs up dark passions among the locals.

Simmonds' novel, itself a collection of comic strips she first published in U.K. newspaper the Guardian, is a modern reimagining of Thomas Hardy's classic novel "Far From the Madding Crowd."
