    Natalie Portman Set For 'Wuthering Heights' Remake
    by Staff



    Natalie Portman is set to star in a new big-screen version of 'Wuthering Heights'.
    The 'Star Wars' beauty will play Catherine Earnshaw in the movie adaptation of Emily Bronte's 1847 novel after convincing director John Maybury she was perfect for the role.
    Maybury had initially wanted a British actress to play Cathy - whose ill-fated relationship with Heathcliff is the basis for the story set on the Yorkshire moors - but decided Portman could carry off the part.
    The film's producer Robert Bernstein said: "Natalie is an extraordinary actress and is right for the role."
    It was recently revealed Lindsay Lohan and Keira Knightley were also in the running for the part.
    Maybury said at the time: "I certainly wouldn't count Keira out but it's whether or not she wants to get back into period costume, because she's been in a few period dramas.
    "I don't count Lindsay Lohan out either. I really believe in the girl and she's coming out from the other side of her well-documented problems - she just needs to be treated seriously."
    Colin Farrell is one of the favourites to take on the role of Heathcliff. Natalie Portman Set For 'Wuthering Heights' Remake - Tittle-Tattle™: The Post Chronicle

    I completely agree Grimmlok. I almost spit out my lungs when she destroyed almost every line in V for Vendetta.

    Geez... Keira and Natalie are practically twins anyway. Why not go for the real English accent?

    Another needless remake.......

    Natalie Portman's British accent is the pits! Why in the name of God do they keep casting her in roles that require one? I don't like Keira for Cathy either, and Lilo is not even worth discussing. I don't know who would work in this role, frankly.

    Colin would be good for Heathcliff, but Heath Ledger would have been better.

    There must be other (English) actresses who could have been considered? Why is it always Natalie or Kiera or Lindsay or Sienna or Scarlett that get mentioned or get the part???

    Exactly! And think of the publicity if they put on a Scarlett O'Hara style search for the perfect actress to play Cathy. I'm sick of the same old pretty faces in serious roles they have no talent for. Natalie started out well, but has steadily tanked. Scarlett is only good in certain things. Sienna is good but her modern look limits her roles, imo.

    I think they're all so over-used that I've had enough of them. I honestly don't think any of the really big names are supertalented - often I'm just left disapointed. The more famous they get, the more talent they seem to loose IMO.

    As opposed to Knightley, who just looks like she's talking with a mouthfull of marbles.

    My god! Why why why? Why remake Wuthering Heights? Why with Natalie Portman? She sucks ass. She is terrible. I can not believe that they were seriously considering Lindsay Lohan. Oh my gawd what have movies come to? Crap.

    I love the version with Merle Oberon and Laurence Olivier. Classic. They shouldn't touch it again.
