Douglas Booth will lead ROMEO AND JULIET opposite Hailee Steinfeld

Well-known yet talented actors like Holly Hunter and Kodi Smit-McPhee have made up the majority of Carlo Carlei’s cast for his upcoming ROMEO AND JULIET. Now a rather unknown presence is being enlisted to play the titular male of the epic love story.

Variety reports that Douglas Booth will fill the role of Romeo opposite Oscar-nominated TRUE GRIT star Hailee Steinfeld. He was one of over 300 actors who vied for the part. He’ll be starring alongside Miley Cyrus in LOL, currently set to hit theaters this year; that’ll help give him some mainstream exposure. He’s also slated to star in the BBC’s Great Expectations as protagonist Pip.

Considering Booth’s selective but rather impressive career thus far, he should make for an awesome Romeo, and the project still sounds top-notch.

How do you feel about Douglas Booth playing Romeo?
