Kudos has acquired the TV adaptation rights for the Wuthering Heights companion Ill Will, from author Michael Stewart.
Ill Will is a neo-gothic novel that puts a spotlight on the character of Heathcliff, a tortured romantic, from Brontë’s classic. The title is to be published by HQ Harper Collins in March 2018, and Kudos has preemptively secured TV rights.
Executive Producer Emma Kingsman-Lloyd said, “Heathcliff has always been a powerfully alluring figure. Michael Stewart’s brilliantly atmospheric and clever story gives us a provocative and profound insight into this well-loved hero and answers the question that has haunted fans for generations. I am delighted we are finally able to bring Heathcliff’s full, remarkably compelling story to life.”
