How cute is this? Amanda Seyfried and Gael Garcia Bernal are teaming up to play a couple in the Italy-set romantic movie Letters to Juliet. They're joined in the cast by Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero. The story is based on a book "about the letters written by the lovelorn to star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet." Here's more:
Story follows a couple (Seyfried, Garcia) who take a trip to Italy and receive a note meant for Juliet written by a woman (Redgrave) searching for a young man who romanced her during a long-ago vacation in Italy. The young woman scours Tuscany to find the older woman's long-lost love (Nero).
The production company behind the project is none other than Summit, home of the Twilight movie franchise, so we know those folks are no strangers to the whole star-crossed lovers thing. What do you think about yet another story loosely based on Romeo and Juliet? Do you think Amanda Seyfried and Gael Garcia Bernal make a sweet couple?
