While quite a few Japanese horror movies have gotten an English-language makeover, it’s rarer for a comedy from the Land Of The Rising Sun to get the same treatment, but Gemma Arterton is now in talks to star in The Wright Girls, which is inspired by the Japanese comedy 2LDK, according to THR.
The film is about two young actresses who live together, pretend to be best friends and are co-stars on a successful television show. In reality, they detest each other and go to extreme and violent lengths to do one another in, after they end up competing for the same movie role. The search is still on for the second female lead.
Andy Fickman (She’s The Man, Race To Witch Mountain) is in talks to direct with Bert V. Royal writing the script.
