At least three feature film versions have already been made from the book, including a surrealist take from Luis Buñuel in 1954. The most famous is the 1939 version starring Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon. Other attempts starred the 'much maligned Bond' Timothy Dalton and Anna Calder-Marshall. Another version in 1992 starred Ralph Fiennes and Heathcliff and Juliette Binoche in dual roles as Cathy and her daughter. Heights was published way back in 1847, so you have to admire a girl who has the nerve to write such a 'saucy' book in those days. It's not often you come across implications of incest and necrophilia in your classic literature. Production is set to begin this fall and casting has already gotten underway. So stay tuned to Cinematical to find out who our next Cathy and Heathcliff are going to be.
