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.
A very strong British cast is being assembled by director Rupert Wyatt, who helmed the outstanding The Escapist, for his adaptation of the beloved Sebastian Faulks novel, Birdsong.
Reports thus far suggest that Michael Fassbender, Paddy Considine and the great Brian Cox have all signed up to star in the film.
Wyatt compared the story to The English Patient in its sweeping, World War-backdropped love story. The novel is very well loved over here so it could well make Wyatt’s career, something which seems deserved following The Escapist.
