‘Romeo & Juliet’ Will Finally Be Remade as a ‘300’-esque Action Movie

Romeo & Juliet is a pretty good story. Over the past few centuries, most of the world has been on the same page about that. But the world has also agreed that Romeo & Juliet is a little light on big, slow-motion, gratuitously sweaty war sequences in which everyone looks like they just walked off the shoot for a Bowflex commercial. Sony aims to rectify that with a new movie they just greenlit called Verona, which promises to “reimagine the classic love story through a lens of an epic, 300-style world.” Perfect. Everything about this sounds perfect. Who wouldn’t want to see a flashy, updated version of Romeo & Juliet? (Besides this one.) (And this one.) (And this one.) (And all these.) Who hasn’t watched 300 and thought, “This would be better if it was exactly the same except it was also Romeo & Juliet.” Everything about this sounds perfect and there won’t be any problems with it all.
