Deborah Ann Woll, Hailee Steinfeld and Dave Franco sign up for Rosline

ROSALINE has just found itself a cast, and it’s full of Hollywood up and comers, with one already having an Oscar nomination under her belt.

That would be “Best Supporting Actress” Hailee Steinfeld of TRUE GRIT fame (did anyone even WATCH that movie? Supporting?), who will play Juliet in the film, which shows the perspective of the girl, Rosaline, who Romeo leaves to be with Juliet.

That girl would be played by True Blood’s Woll, and Franco will presumably be Romeo. I guess his brother finally reached his upward limit on how many roles he could take on, and now finally a few have opened up for him.

The film is from the writers of 500 DAYS OF SUMMER, and will use modern day dialogue in 16th century Verona, kind of the opposite of ROMEO + JULIET I guess.

Extra Tidbit: Oh yeah, Dave Franco WAS in SUPERBAD, I forgot. I just know him from ACTING WITH JAMES FRANCO.

I loved Steinfeld in True Grit, but isn't she too young for the part compared to the other actors ? I know that Romeo and Juliet are supposed to be something like 15, but Woll and Franco are 11 years older than her.

While this sounds like a great project...

... with a talented screenwriter and new up-n-coming talent behind the camera (Michael Sucsy, who made the excellent "Grey Gardens"). I was really hoping we'd hear something about Carlo Carlie's more traditional "Romeo and Juliet", with Steinfeld slated to play Juliet.
It's doubtful her agency would let her play Juliet twice in a row, even in different projects. So, if she's confirmed for this I fear Carlei's "Romeo and Juliet" is a non-starter.
