Romeo & Juliet Trailer — Hailee Steinfeld & Douglas Booth Star As Lovers
This is a far cry from Hailee’s most known role as fierce cowgirl Mattie Ross in 2010’s True Grit, but from the looks of it, Hailee makes a great Juliet. Douglas is a newcomer to the Hollywood scene but after watching his Romeo risk it all for his lady love, we are sold. He is exactly who we pictured Romeo to be. And the fact that he looks like a morphed version of Zac Efron and Chace Crawford has us swooning.
Developed by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, we know this film is sure to have us producing mass amounts of tears, because if anyone knows how to break our hearts it’s Julian (RIP Lady Sybil and Matthew). With a cast that includes Homeland’s Damian Lewis, Oscar-nominated Paul Giamatti, and Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick, this film is sure to be epic.
