Your high school literature teacher can finally trash her DVD of 1998's Great Expectations, which starred Gwyneth Paltrow as Estella, Ethan Hawke as Pip (renamed Finnegan Bell for whatever reason), and Anne Bancroft as an updated Miss Havisham. A new version of this classic Charles Dickens novel is on the way, and it bypasses the hip, updated nature of the last remake for something more akin to the actual book. Directed by Mike Newell (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), this new Great Expectations promises to be the most accurate representation of the written word ever brought to the screen. We have a hi-res photo gallery from the movie featuring stars Ralph Fiennes (Magwitch), Helena Bonham Carter (Miss Havisham), Holly Grainger (Estella), and Jeremy Irvine (Pip), and if nothing else, it looks like they got the costumes right.
