There isn't much out there about this yet but Hailee Steinfeld has been cast to play Juliet in a new rendition of Billy Shakespeare's play. Directed by Carlo Carlei, who hasn't done much that you'd remember. I am intruiged because I want Hailee to have a successful career, but I also firmly believe there is no way this movie could top Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet (1996). NO. WAY. It is one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time.
