My h-l-p helpfully points out a report that the new big screen Wuthering Heights ("Enough", sez I. "Can't we adapt Villette or Shirley already, for the love of Bronte?") has found a director and stars, supposedly reuniting the team behind "Girl With a Pearl Earring."
Cathy will be played by that luscious-lipped Tess, Gemma Arterton, who is fantastic. Great choice.
Heathcliff will be played by sneering prepster
Brilliant marketing strategy yes--Wuthering Heights as teen angst melodrama, capturing the hearts of Twilight and Gossip Girl fanladies galore.
But appropriate casting for the wild, menacing, Heathcliff? I'll believe it when I see it.
