A teaser trailer for Hailee Steinfeld’s new movie Romeo and Juliet has been released.
The 16-year-old actress plays alongside Douglas Booth as star-crossed lovers in the new William Shakespeare adaptation. Damian Lewis, Ed Westwick, Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgård are also in the cast.
Italian director Carlo Carlei directed the movie – which was filmed across locations in Mantua, Verona and Rome. The release date for the U.S. hasn’t been confirmed yet but the movie will open in the UK on July 26.
Last year screenplay writer Julian Fellowe said of the leads, “When I saw Douglas Booth in his costume and Hailee Steinfeld, it was clear that we had found a way to retell this most classic of all love stories, with a pair of lovers who really are as young, as pure, and as handsome as I had always wanted them to be.”
