Prepare yourselves, Rejects, as the rise of British hottie Gemma Arterton is coming on hard and fast. Last year she got oiled up as a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace, later this year she will be the princess to Jake Gyllenhaal’s Prince of Persia and next year she will be starring alongside Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes and Sam Worthington in Louis Leterrier’s epic remake Clash of the Titans.
Arterton will play Io, the love interest of Perseus (Worthington). This is a character that didn’t exist in the original 1981 Desmond Davis directed film, so there isn’t a ton of information about where her character fits into the story. However, if I know Hollywood — which I do — all will be explained in the end. She does exist in Greek mythology though, as one of Zues’ lovers who gets turned into a cow. If that makes the final cut of the film, that will be awesome. For now, have a look at her on a boat, looking quite ancient next to director Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk) below, courtesy of Gemma Arterton Online.
