On the surface, this might sound noble. A studio wanting to usher in new talent and make a classic piece of literature more desirable to a new, young audience? Huzzah! But that's not quite the case. Twi-hards and voracious teen readers and fans of forbidden teen love are already well aware of Emily Brontë's book. It's Bella's favorite. The books not only reference the novel -- they also quote from it. That pic to the right holds the nifty little label: "Bella & Edward's Favorite Book." Maybe I'm wrong, but it sounds a lot like the studio going a new way with the project, rather than Arnold bringing new ideas to the table. Will we soon learn of her departure?
Being a die-hard fan of the novel, methinks Bella herself would be mighty unpleased, and call me crazy, but I think teens and Twi-hards can handle Wuthering Heights without a "reboot."
