The first images from Carlo Carlei's Romeo and Juliet have gone online.  The film retains the original setting of Shakespeare's play, but the tone is aimed at wooing the Twilight crowd.   Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) stars as Juliet, and Douglas Booth (The Pillars of the Earth) is her fair Romeo.  I'm not sure how Carlei plans to reconcile what's arguably a "dated" setting with a modern attitude, but I like the look of the film, I'm eager to see Steinfeld's follow up to True Grit, and the great supporting cast includes Paul Giamatti, Stellan Skarsgard, Damian Lewis, and Natascha McElhone.  Bring on the star-crossed lovers. Hit the jump to check out the images.  The movie currently has no U.S. release date, but it's set to open in the U.K. on February 14, 2013. Images via Kinopoisk.
