All-new Heathcliff is a Kerry German

THE $15m budget movie Wuthering Heights could be shot in Ireland in late October after advanced discussions to bring the film to Ireland were held at the Cannes film festival last week.

Michael Fassbender, who starred in the I'm Sorry Guinness advert, the semi-animated epic 300 and who plays the IRA hunger-striker Bobby Sands in Hunger, will play the role of Heathcliff in the romantic fiction.

If some of the film is shot in Ireland, the film will be co-produced by British film producers, Ecosse Films, and the Irish production company, Octagon Films. The rest of the film would be shot in Britain. Octagon and Ecosse recently co-produced Becoming Jane, a romance about Jane Austen.
