English rose Gemma Arterton and
Ed Westwick of TV's
Gossip Girl will
star in the latest film version of Wuthering Heights, the classic novel which has never gone out of print
since it's initial publishing in the 19th century. Arterton and Westwick will play star-crossed couple
Catherine and Heathcliff.
Peter Webber, of Girl With a Pearl Earring fame, has just been hired to direct the long-languishing project. Natalie Portman had been cast to play the heroine Catherine last year, but quickly pulled out of the production. With a new cast and a director firmly in place, the film should begin shooting later this year.
