Romeo & Juliet (2011)

Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to star in an indie adaptation of Romeo & Juliet.

My curiosity is piqued since Shakespeare's screenplay has been adapted by Julian Fellowes! (Young Victoria, Gosford Park, Downton Abbey)
To be steered by Italian director Carlo Carlie (Flight of the Innocent) with Gabriele Muccino (Seven Pounds) attached as a producer.

Update: Holly Hunter in negotiations to join cast (she's been cast as the nurse)
Update: Ed Westwick cast as Tybalt
Kodi Smit-McPhee in talks to play Benvolio, Romeo's cousin

Not entirely sure how this adaptation will be different from previous ones?
Shooting is expected to begin in Italy later this spring.

  3. An indie adaptation? Not sure what to think of it yet.

    I've been hoping for a proper classic version for years (I still like the 1968 one best so far).

    At least she's the right age for Juliet.

  4. Elanne, yes this is the one in which Lily was assumed to be cast. I don't think it's set in stone yet for Steinfeld either.
