"A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo."
No tragic love story has ever touched so many hearts as William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. This literary classic has found its way to the Silver Screen in many forms, but a new adaptation will hit theaters overseas this fall.
Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) won the role of the alluring Juliet and Douglas Booth (LOL) plays her lover Romeo. Other notable cast members include Paul Giamatti as Friar Laurence and Stellan Skarsgard as the Prince of Verona. The film also stars Damian Lewis, Ed Westwick, Christian Cooke and Tom Wisdom; Carlo Carlei directs.
Will I set up my everlasting rest,
And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars
From this world-wearied flesh. Eyes, look your last!
Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you
The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss
A dateless bargain to engrossing death!"
No release date has been set in the United States for the film. "Romeo and Juliet" opens in United Kingdom and Ireland theaters on October 25, 2013.
