ROMEO'S JILTED LOVER
EXCLUSIVE: Lily Collins is in early talks to star in the Fox 2000 pic ROSALINE, a twist on the ROMEO AND JULIET story that’s based on Rebecca Serle’s debut novel WHEN YOU WERE MINE, Variety's Justin Kroll and Rachel Abrams report. Michael Sucsy (HBO’s GREY GARDENS) is directing from a script by Scott Neustader and Michael H. Weber, who previously wrote (500) DAYS OF SUMMER. In Shakespeare’s ROMEO AND JULIET Rosaline is the woman Romeo first claims to love from afar before he becomes enamored with Juliet. Sucsy’s film finds Romeo’s jilted ex-girlfriend Rosaline telling her side of the story. There had been talk of Hailee Steinfeld, Dave Franco and Deborah Ann Woll starring, but deals were never able to work out.
