Gothic Romances In Hollywood

I am so very excited for a few soon-to-be released films this year! First off there's Jane Eyre (March 11), which had a miniseries remake in '06, but hasn't had an actual movie remake done since the 90's.
Red Riding Hood is also scheduled to come out March 11. I'm a bit skeptical about this one (mostly because I'm not a big Amanda Seyfried fan, and It's done by the same director as Twilight), but I'm going to look past these issues, if for no other reason than to satisfy my obsession with fairytales. Finally, sometime this year a new version of Wuthering Heights is scheduled to arrive. Let's see if it's as good as the recent version done by BBC (hard boots to fill) but as a change of pace, this one will be starring James Howson- making him the first-ever black Heathcliff. (considering Emily Bronte considered Heathcliff to be "tawny", and never the deathly-pale characters we have seen, this is probably more role appropriate.)P.S. on a decidedly un-period drama side, The Adjustment Bureau looks intriguing and the trailer can be viewed here.
