I guess they are keeping true to the original with Juliet being a younger girl and Romeo older, this will draw some controversy but I can totally picture them two as Romeo and Juliet, Douglas is a fantastic upcoming actor and Hailee is also going from strenght so strength.

Can’t wait to see how Hailee will do. Should have a more broad range of emotions to deal with in this part.

# 3

He’s so pretty. She’s incredibly pretty. They’re both age appropriate for their respective parts but I can practically hear the controversy coming!

# 4

HES SUPER CUTE!!

# 5

She may be talented but I don’t find her the least bit pretty. Of course that’s just personal opinion.

# 6

I’ve never seen either one of them act, but I heard Hailee can act. Now Douglas has some big shoes to fill with Leonard Whiting and Leonardo DiCaprio being the previous actors. Douglas is handsome. I hope they make the love scenes tasteful like the previous ones…

# 7

Hailee is such a cutie, loved her in TG

# 8

he’s really cute!!

Why do I always think of Seinfeld when I read her name?

I’ve never heard of him, but he is really cute! I’m excited to see more of her too, she’s good. And the rest of the cast looks good, basically this looks really promising.

this should be a good movie cant wait! :D

aw they’re both so cute! I like it. Great casting. I’d definitely watch this.

So…I love this.

Oh my god. He is beautiful.

@Kaylee: This jewish ***** is ugly as FOCK

are we running out of original film ideas? This film has been re-done how many times??

Oh please Romeo & Juliet was written by William Shakespeare over 500 years ago and is still performed in variations around the world and made into films countless times. A classic is a classic.

@anon: What’s wrong with reinterpreting a classic. Yes, Hollywood has ran out of ideas, but I’d rather see Shakespeare adaptations rather than tireless remakes and sequels.

I personally would fine it odd to be kissing a 14 year old when I’m a 19 year old guy but whatever lol.

Sounds like its going to be cool.

This guy is really cute.

He was a Burberry model along with Emma Watson. He looks cute

She is such a beautiful and sweet girl.
I hope Hollywood doesn’t destroy her.

They said in an interview about the movie that “the love scenes will be appropriate for a 14 year old” so who knows what that will bring. I actually think they should have gone with someone older for Juliet who can handle everything the role entails.

He looks like Keira Knightley….
