Wuthering Heights to Be Adapted for the Screen Yet Again


Emily Bronte's Gothic tale of love and class division, Wuthering Heights will find itself adapted for screen yet again. This time the director is John Maybury, though the cast won't be decided until the Fall.

Variety explains that this "tempestuous love story about obsessive passion across the class divide, set on the Yorkshire Moors" has been adapted for film and TV "more than a dozen times, most famously in 1939 with Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon. A 1992 version starred Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche."

In my perfect world, I'd have Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) adapt Wuthering Heights. Can you imagine how beautiful it would be? Sigh. Anyway, who do you think should play the English lovers, Catherine and Heathcliff?
