Cast taken to new ‘Heights’

Arterton, Westwick join Ecosse project

Gemma Arterton and Ed Westwick will play Cathy and Heathcliff in Ecosse Films’ adaptation of Emily Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights.”

Peter Webber will direct the pic after original helmer John Maybury ankled.

Project has also seen a number of cast changes. Natalie Portman was originally tapped to play the role of Cathy. Scheduling conflicts saw her exit the project before being replaced by Abbie Cornish. Arterton will now play the iconic romantic role after producers opted to go younger with the pic.

Ecosse Films’ Robert Bernstein and Douglas Rae will produce the film with HanWay Films handling the international sales.
