Though Natalie Portman had shown tons of excitement over the role of Catherine Earnshaw in Wuthering Heights, a scheduling conflict has forced the actress to exit the film's production.
Natalie Portman Exits Wuthering Heights
So what keeps popping up on Portman's calendar? It sounds strange, but she has been forced to exit Wuthering Heights due to an unannounced project.
Though the production lost a major talent, it is still scheduled to begin shooting this fall.
Adapted by Olivia Hetreed, Wuthering Heights is one of the classics of English literature, and tells of the intense, elemental and yet ultimately thwarted passion between Earnshaw and Heathcliff. John Maybury will direct.
Though multiple adaptations of the tale already exist, Ecosse Films was hoping that Portman could help make the best version yet.
Guess we'll just have to wait and see what sort of influence she left behind.
