"My only love sprung from my only hate!"
We all know whose ill-fated lips those legendary words expel from and we all know how Shakespeare's tragic tale ends. And yet we still love seeing the agony and ecstasy of their star-crossed romance. Get ready, boys and girls -- because the Bard's famous love story, Romeo & Juliet, is coming to the silver screen once again this fall. True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld and Pillars of the Earth actor Douglas Booth are trying their hands at the well-worn roles in the re-imagining of the beloved play. And we have your first look at the brand-new trailer.
Adapted by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and directed by Carlos Carlei, Romeo & Juliet also stars Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick and Homeland's Damian Lewis, who finally get to use their sexy British accents!
Does the world need another remake of Romeo & Juliet? Shakespeare fans will have to wait until October 11, when the film hits theaters nationwide to find out.
