Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans) and Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) are poised to pair up for a new romantic comedy.  The Wrap reports that the two will star in The Pre-Nup for writer/director Jonathan Lynn (Clue, The Whole Nine Yards).  The story revolves around an American groom who, the night before his wedding, suggests to his British bride that they get a pre-nup.  The groom’s father is a former rock star who threatens to cut him off if he doesn’t get his fiancée to sign the document.  The report doesn’t specify which roles these two actors will play, but given the age difference I’m inclined to believe that Arterton will play the bride while Bonneville might portray the rocker father.

Hit the jump for news of Arterton possibly joining Steven Spielberg’s Robopocalypse.

Additionally, The Wrap’s report briefly notes that Arterton has been under consideration for Steven Spielberg’s next directorial effort, the sci-fi actioner RobopocalypseChris Hemsworth is already set as the lead with Ben Whishaw (Cloud Atlas) in a supporting role, and last we heard Anne Hathaway was The Beard’s first choice for the female lead.  The Les Miserables actress has yet to sign on, so it’s possible that Spielberg is now looking at Arterton as a possible alternate.

Based on the book by Daniel H. Wilson, the story takes place in a future where “artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication.”  The Cabin in the Woods director/co-writer Drew Goddard wrote the screenplay, so this is shaping up to be one of 2014’s most anticipated titles.  Arterton will next be seen opposite Jeremy Renner in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.
