The trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Romeo and Juliet has leaked. The film, starring Douglas Booth, Hailee Steinfeld, Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti and Ed Westwick, is due out later this year.
As a child of the 90s, I adore the 1996 version from Baz Luhrman starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. I almost feel like another adaptation isn’t needed. But then again, this will be made and made and made over the years, and will never stop.
Just realized Brody from Homeland is Lord Capulet in this version while Carrie from Homeland played Juliet in the 1996 version. Do you think they talked about it on set in between filming awkward love scenes?
Also, I was really worried about Ed Westwick and this hair, but he’s won me over in this trailer. And Douglas and Hailee seem great!
