Ed Westwick of Gossip Girl and Gemma Arterton of Quantum of Solace are rumored to be playing star-crossed lovers in a new movie version of Wuthering Heights.

The young Brits beat out a host of other high-profile names - including Sienna Miller, Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman - to bag the parts in the adaptation.

The last movie version in 1992 saw Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche in the main roles. Can these two sexy stars make the famously electric, tortured romance between the fictional lovers Heathcliff and Cathy even hotter? We think so.

Westwick, who plays poor little rich boy Chuck Bass in U.S. teen drama we love, reportedly wooed producer Robert Bernstein to play Heathcliff.

"We’ve cast it as written," said Bernstein, whose production company has been developing the film for years. Gemma has just turned 23; Ed is 21.

"Heathcliff’s a teen, and the story takes him into his early 20s. Cathy is just as young," Bernstein said. "It’s radical because usually actors playing these characters are much older. We’re also very proud to have British actors."

No word on whether the film will include any scenes of Gemma Arterton nude. But one can certainly hold out hope of that event taking place.

If you don't watch Gossip Girl ... you're missing out.

Seriously, if you like reading celebrity gossip, you'd love the show. But you don't have to know a thing about it to take part in The Hollywood Gossip's new poll.

Part of the CW teen drama's popularity (a big part) comes from its hot cast. See below - Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick on the cover of Details ...

A couple of swingin' singles, Drew Barrymore and Chace Crawford of Gossip Girl fame, are now dating, Perez Hilton is reporting this morning.

"It's early on but they're definitely dating," an insider said.

The pair hit up the Saturday Night Live after-party together this past weekend, and were out and about again on Monday night!

Drew Barrymore and Chace Crawford were at the Kings of Leon concert in New York City and they made no attempt at hiding their relationship.

Multiple eyewitnesses say they were making out in plain view!

Chace's last relationship of note was with Carrie Underwood, but they broke up via text message. Like, OMG. Drew broke up with Justin Long in July.

UPDATE: Now Us Weekly is reporting that she actually made out with Ed Westwick - Chace's BFF and Gossip Girl co-star. Apparently Crawford was there, as they go everywhere together, but Drew was all over Ed. Nice work, Perez. Jackass.
