Here Is Wherefore Art the 'Romeo and Juliet' Trailer

Remember that new movie version of "Romeo and Juliet" that "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld was attached to? Yeah, we had completely forgotten about it, too, but now there's a trailer to jog our memories.

Directed by Carlo Carlei and starring Douglas Booth as Romeo, this newfangled "R&J" looks decidedly ... calmer than Baz Luhrmann's game-changing 1996 version starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. But hey, it's, you know, a pretty good script by a fella named Bill Shakespeare, if we remember correctly, and it's nice to see Steinfeld in a more girly-girl role as compared to her terrific tomboyish turn in "True Grit."

The supporting cast is pretty great, too, with Kodi Smit-McPhee as Benvolio, Damian Lewis as Lord Capulet, Natascha McElhone as Lady Capulet, Lesley Manville as the Nurse, Ed Westwick as Tybalt, Paul Giamatti as Friar Laurence, Christian Cooke as Mercutio, Tomas Arana as Lord Montague, Laura Morante as Lady Montague, Tom Wisdom as Count Paris, Leon Vitali as the Apothecary and Stellan Skarsgard as Prince of Verona. Quite the impressive dramatis personae.

Check out the trailer above, and thanks to ComingSoon.net for the find.

Hailee Steinfeld Stars in New Video 'Endlessly' by The Cab

Youtube

Tearing apart your house with Academy Award nominee Hailee Steinfeld sounds fun, right? It looks fun, too, in the new video for The Cab's song "Endlessly."

The 15-year-old "True Grit" star landed the gig by simply tweeting to The Cab front man Alex DeLeon about how much she loves the song; DeLeon responded and even dedicated the song to her during a performance, before offering her the lead role in a music video that's been in the works for the past year.

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...

• John Cusack is a triple threat this week! In just the past few days he's scored roles in the legal drama "Due Process," the Stephen King adaptation "Cell" (Cusack's second King adventure, following "1408") and Roger Avary's "Duel"-type thriller, "Airspace."

• Hollywood loves it when a one-night stand leads to true love (and, often, a baby ... and not always in that order). Deadline reports that Amanda Seyfried and Patrick Dempsey will be playing unexpectedly expecting parents in "Wonderful Tonight," a romantic comedy that we hope gets a new title sooner rather than later (sorry, Mr. Clapton, but do you really need the extra money?).

Hailee Steinfeld Explains 'Why We Broke Up'

Hailee Steinfeld is growing up. Sure, she held her own against Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon in the Coen Brothers' "True Grit" when she was only 14, but she's about to experience the true teenage rite of passage: heartbreak. Word on the Hollywood streets is that Steinfeld is in final talks to join the upcoming comedy, "Why We Broke Up." Need we say more?

OK, we will (say more, that is). Adapted from a book by Daniel Handler (who also wrote the Lemony Snicket series), the story follows Min (Steinfeld), a high-school sophomore who enjoys hanging out with her friends at their favorite coffee shop. Sounds pretty tame to us. But when she falls for Ed, a senior and captain of the basketball team, she gets swept away by their roller coaster romance, which (we assume) ends kinda badly.

A few weeks after their break-up, Min drops off a letter and box of mementos on Ed's porch, spurring an unforeseen chain of events. Hey, no one said break-ups were easy. Get More »

Lily Collins is set to swap a fairy tale for a little Shakespeare.

The "Mirror Mirror" star will soon be getting tragically romantic as she's signed on to star in "Rosaline," a spinoff of the Bard's classic love story, "Romeo and Juliet," according to Variety.

"Rosaline," which is based on a yet-to-be-published novel by Rebecca Serles, centers on the young woman whom Romeo mentions a few times during the first act of Shakespeare's play, a would-be ladylove he quickly dumps (off-stage) once he gets a look at Juliet. If Romeo had stayed with Rosaline, there would've been no "Romeo and Juliet" -- now it's time to hear her side of the story. Get More »
