Actress Eva Green and Gemma Arterton will star in the movie based one of the life tracks of celebrated writer Virginia Woolf. The duo is set to star in “Vita & Virginia” directed by Chanya Button. The movie discovers the course of friendship and love affair between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West, which formed the inspiration for the author’s novel “Orlando”.

Green will play the character of Woolf and West will be played by Arterton. “… what ‘Vita & Virginia’ offers is an example of a relationship where bold, brilliant women bent these institutions to their will at great personal cost,” said the director. Button has co-written the screenplay with Eileen Atkins.
