Tank Director Goes To “Wuthering Heights”

Andrea Arnold (“Fish Tank”) is set to direct the new film adaptation of “Wuthering Heights” for Ecosse Films reports Variety.

Emily Bronte’s classic 1847 novel is a tempestuous love story about obsessive passion across the class divide, set on the Yorkshire Moors. The property has been adapted for film and TV more than a dozen times.

Arnold takes over for Peter Webber who left the project last month. Olivia Hetreed adapted the script with shooting to start in the Spring.
