Stephen Frears to Direct Posy Simmonds' TAMARA DREWE Movie

From today's Guardian article by Catherine Shoard:

"Tamara Drewe, Posy Simmonds's comic strip about a journalist who ruffles feathers in a rural writers' retreat, is to be turned into a film by Stephen Frears.

"The director of The Queen and The Grifters is reported to have cast former Bond girl and St Trinian's graduate Gemma Arterton as the title character, a newspaper columnist whose recent nose job transforms her into a seductive flirt, to the chagrin of the quiet village's womenfolk. Tamsin Greig and Roger Allam are also said to be attached to the project."
