Hailee Steinfeld To Tackle Shakespeare Next. Not Literally, Of Course.
What makes this version of Romeo and Juliet different than all the others? It's not entirely clear. The principles are an odd assortment including Carlo Carlie, an Italian director whose most notable film was in 1992. Screenwriting duties have bee taken on by Julian Fellowes who has curious dichotomy of work that includes both Gosford Park and The Tourist.
The movie will shoot in Italy in the next couple months and will be screening in English classrooms across the country in late 2012. (THR)
