Gemma Arterton could very well be one of The Wright Girls for Relativity Media and Atlas Entertainment’s upcoming remake of Japanese filmmaker Yukihiko Tsutsumi’s bad roommate thriller 2LDK.
The film’s official synopsis reads:
Vanessa and Katie are best friends and roommates who are living the Hollywood dream by starring together on a hit television show. Ambitious and eager to advance their careers, the two both set their sights on the same choice movie role.
A wicked game of sabotage begins, which soon escalates into a visceral, bloody catfight filled with violence, mutilation… and nearly murder.
The Wright Girls is scripted by Easy A scribe Bert Royal. Andy Fickman, director of such family fare as Race to Witch Mountain, The Game Plan and She’s the Man, is said to be circling the project.
Genre fans last caught an eyeful of Arterton in the Anchor Bay abduction thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed. The sexy Brit also starred in Disney’s Prince of Persia and Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ Clash of the Titans.
Arterton will next be seen opposite Jeremy Renner in Tommy Wirkola’s (Dead Snow) Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and as Saoirse Ronan’s mom in Neil Jordan’s (Interview with the Vampire) mother/daughter vampire drama Byzantium.
