Cannes 2009: People in films!

News keeps on coming through in Cannes about lots and lots of actors appearing in lots and lots of films. It’s what they do.

So in order to teach the filmmakers out here one or two things about brevity, we’re going to do a quick breakdown:

Gemma Arterton – who seems to be in everything these days and would have been great in Good Will Hunting – has landed the role of Cathy in an adap of Bronte’s Wuthering Heights. She’s English. Which original actress attached Natalie Portman isn’t. Good.

Brighton Rock – it’s a book by Graham Greene, kids – is to star Control’s Sam Riley and up-and-coming Carey Mulligan. It’s about a gangster marrying a witness.
