'Gossip Girl' guy Ed Westwick has landed a role to move him off televisions and onto the big screen in a new version of 'Wuthering Heights.' According to Variety, he will play Heathcliff alongside Bond girl Gemma Arterton as Cathy.

Project has also seen a number of cast changes. Natalie Portman was originally tapped to play the role of Cathy. Scheduling conflicts saw her exit the project before being replaced by Abbie Cornish. Arterton will now play the iconic romantic role after producers opted to go younger with the pic.

For those unfamiliar with the 'Gossip Girl' oeuvre, below is a slideshow of Westwick over the past few years.
