A new film adaptation of Romeo & Juliet, directed by filmmaker Carlo Carlei, will hit the UK on October 25, 2013. According to Indiewire, the movie currently does not have a US distributor.
We’ve embedded the trailer above–what do you think? Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes wrote the screenplay. Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld portrays fair Juliet and LOL actor Douglas Booth plays Romeo.
The supporting cast includes Sideways actor Paul Giamatti as the gentle Friar Lawrence and Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick as the hot-tempered Tybalt.
