True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld has landed the most romantic role in Hollywood after signing on to play "Juliet" in a new movie adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet.

The teenager, who was Oscar nominated for her role in the western, will be Italian director Carlo Carlie's leading lady in an indie production based on the tragic tale of forbidden love and suicide.

The film, which does not have a Romeo on board yet, will shoot in Italy, where the original play was set, later this year.

Who would you cast as Romeo?
