Fil-Am Hailee Steinfeld Tasked with Nude Scenes as New Juliet


MANILA, Philippines -- Young Filipino-American actress Hailee Steinfeld is reportedly called for nude sequences in the latest "Romeo and Juliet" reboot where she plays female lead.

UK's Sunday Times and Daily Mail posted a slice of the movie's script that requires the 14-year-old to disrobe: "They (Romeo and Juliet) start undressing each other - slowly, gently and carefully until they are naked.

Fellowes had said he wanted to be true to Juliet who was about Steinfeld's age in the original text.

"I wanted Hailee because she is the perfect age. Juliet is at that stage of- what you might call a child/woman. Just like Hailee herself is. My version is a romantic story - one that keeps pretty true to Shakespeare but is, I hope, more accessible."

Steinfeld, who definitely took thunder away from Matt Damon and Jeff Bridges in the Coen Brothers' acclaimed "True Grit," is also reported to be a top choice for a possible "Carrie" remake, according to Cinema Blend. Writing the updated film version of the Stephen King story is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ("Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark").
