Classic reboot of Romeo and Juliet is due to release July. NOT MODERN.

Douglas Booth as Romeo, Hailee Steinfield as Juliet and Ed Westwick as Tybalt!

I can't wait!

Wow, this looks really nice! I liked Baz Luhrmann's adaptation already, but found DiCaprio too cheesy at some points...I think this will be great! But I looked up some info and I saw this Juliet is born in like...1996! So she's about 16, wow! Great choice though, for Juliet in the play is in fact really young. I hope it will come to the Netherlands too!
Edit: oh wait funny this Douglas is playing Emma's love interest in Noah, isn't he?

Looks nice, but i have some points that don´t fit to me.

 

First it seems like they have added some scenes who wasn´t in the screenplay. Can´t remember any scene when they was judge by an holy man.

Also i don´t like the modern song in the trailer.

 

But the cast for Juliet is very nice, young and a good actress. Loved her in True Grit.

Douglas plays Miley's boyfriend in LOL, that's the only place I know him from.

When she was cast she was 14, directors had to cut the sex scene out and make it innocent because she refused to get naked.

I don't think I noticed any scene's that weren't in the play. The judge scene, if you mean him sitting on the throne was changed a little bit. Romeo still gets banished whether it be he standing or sitting.

Though the song is rather modern it adds a nice touch to a present day adaptation. Times are moving on.

I'm interested in watching the film but I will wait until it's on dvd. I only watch blockbusters at the cinema. I haven't watched any version of Romeo and Juliet so it will be interesting to see this one and some others in time.

Looks good, will probably give it a watch :) I've always loved Romeo and Juliet. At least they cast a great looking actor as Romeo lol, would be wrong if they didn't :P. I don't think this will beat the 1996 version though, that's amazing. Leo and Claire..just the perfect actors for the roles. I'm surprised its not a modern version though but looks good all the same :)
