    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.

  • ClearPerspective

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

  • Alaia

    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!



  • Kaylee

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

  • Taylor

    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…

  • LoriLori

    Hailee is such a cutie, loved her in TG

  • cute

    he’s really cute!!

  • whatevs

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

  • Maggie

    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.

  • marie

    this should be a good movie cant wait! :D

  • dee

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

  • Deedz

    So…I love this.

  • HowdyHo

    Oh my god. He is beautiful.

  • Adams

    @Kaylee: This jewish skank is ugly as FOCK

  • anon

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

  • please

    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.

  • kå simply àmazing!

    wow great .they cute

  • Alaia

    @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.

  • Someone

    This guy is really cute.

  • Irena

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

  • Sam

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

  • Liz

    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.

  • Lil

    He looks like Keira Knightley….

  • Madhatter

    This seems like really good casting- I’m impressed.

  • Dani

    I’m looking forward to this. :)

  • literature student

    He is GORGEOUS,trying not to sound harsh though im nt so sure she’s pretty enough to play the beautiful juliet,she doesnt have the ”look” really. Emma Watson or Vanessa Hudgens should play juliet.

  • @

    @Liz: I’m not sure I understand that seen as NO love scene is “appropriate” for a 14 year old child. 14 should have nothing to do with “love scenes” IMO.

  • anon

    i love how hailee didnt go the disney/ nickelodeon way! she is so talented and gorgggeous

  • taylor

    i actually think both look absolutely perfect for the roles… i can’t wait for the movie

  • taylor

    i actually think both look absolutely perfect for the roles… i can’t wait for the movie

  • ME

    Hailee is the one of the best actresses of her generation.

    She can take any role. I’m looking forward to this movie.

    Nothing wrong with re-making a Shakespeare, every generation should have they’re own interpretation.

  • Mina

    I still think, that Lily Collins should have been Juliet :(
    But I also think that Hailee will do just fine. :)

  • Alex

    I’m sorry but casting Hailee as Juliet ruins the movie. She is 14, and I doubt she has read, or can even grasp the complexities a role such as Juliet’s entails. I’d do a better job. She isn’t pretty, sorry. I’m just being honest. They should have gone with someone older, the scenes are serious-not meant for minors.

  • Dasha

    Not impressed by the cast except for Ed Westwick, i can totally picture him as Tybalt.
    It will be very difficult for this unknown actor to fill Leo Dicaprio’s big big shoes.

  • soler

    ed westwick & douglas booth – hottest guys in one movie, can’t wait to see it!

  • Jane

    I don’t think thats really appropriate but whatever, what are you going to do. he is really cute but she still looks way to much like a little kid. They need to find a more mature Juliet or at least a younger Romeo. Because this borderline pedophile.

  • Jocelyn

    @Kaylee: Agreed! Whole time I watched this movie I was like SHE is supposed to be the incandescent Juliet?? She totally doesn’t do “I never saw true beauty until this night” justice at all! And she talks like she has Invisilign on (invisible braces) or something.
