Arterton and Westwick to go to Wuthering Heights

51794809

The new adaptation of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights has managed to pick up Bond girl Gemma Arterton and Gossip Girl’s Chuck Bass, Ed Westwick. It’s to be directed by Peter Weber, of the Girl with the Pearl Earring.

/Film notes interesting that this casting does mean that the two leads will be roughly the same age as their characters, surely something close to unheard-of in Hollywood. It has gone through a number of casting changes over the past few years, including the likes of Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman and Abbie Cornish all being attached and latterly quitting.

It could undoubtedly prove a good choice. Arterton has proven herself a pretty charming screen presence, in other period dramas no less, while Westwick is the best thing about the ridiculously addictive Gossip Girl.
