Gemma Bovery Gets An Ex-Boyfriend
Mel Raido joins Gemma Arterton in the adaptation

Tamara Drewe
's Gemma Arterton may be gearing up to tackle another Posy Simmons graphic novel, but she can't do it on her own. Good news, then, because Spooks and Strike Back's Mel Raido has signed up to join her in Anne Fontaine's adaptation of Gemma Bovery.

Raido will play Gemma Tate's (Arterton) ex, a roguishly charming but occasionally obnoxious food critic, who returns to Gemma's life in the Norman village in which she's settled. The problem? She's since married Charlie Bovery, and her desires and duties are soon at loggerheads.

Riffing on Gustave Flaubert's great novel Madame Bovary, the results should offer interesting cultural osmosis with Coco Before Chanel director Fontaine, Arterton and co decamping to rural France for a tale of love, lust and camembert.
