Scripted by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), it promises to tell “the most dangerous love story ever told”.

It stars Hailee Steinfeld, who made her name in the Coen Brothers’ True Grit, as Juliet with British newcomer Douglas Booth as her Romeo. Support comes from the likes of Paul Giamatti, Stellan Skarsgard and Damian Lewis.

The movie is due for release later this year.
