Portman to star in new Wuthering Heights

Natalie Portman is to star in a new version of Wuthering Heights, the tragic Emily Bronte romance which has been the subject of numerous big screen outings. Portman will play Cathy Earnshaw, whose love for her foster brother Heathcliff starts a ball rolling which destroys the lives of family members across two generations.

Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche starred in the 1992 version of Bronte's only novel decades after Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon played the star-crossed lovers in 1939

The film's UK producers Ecosse Films, who made Becoming Jane and the upcoming Brideshead Revisited, are currently searching for their Heathcliff to appear opposite Portman.

These are busy times for the American actress, who recently finished filming Jim Sheridan's English version of the Danish hit Brothers, in which she plays the wife of a missing serviceman in Afghanistan who is comforted by her wayward brother-in-law.

Portman is also preparing to direct and star in a segment of the portmanteau film New York, I Love You.
