Hollywood star Natalie Portman has dropped out of a forthcoming big-screen adaptation of Wuthering Heights over conflicts in her schedule.

The Star Wars actress was set to play the film's lead role, Cathy Earnshaw, in John Maybury's take on the classic Emily Bronte novel, but has quit the project in favor of an unknown movie venture.

Portman was slated to appear opposite German actor Michael Fassbender, who will play the iconic Heathcliff in the film.

Movie bosses at Ecosse Films are said to be determined to shoot the movie on schedule and are currently searching for a replacement for Portman.
