Two-time Tony-nominated Broadway director Alex Timbers is set to make his feature debut with Rosaline, Universal’s reimagining of Romeo & Juliet.  A comedic take, produced by Shawn Levy and scripted by (500) Days of Summer’s Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, Rosaline is told from the point of view of the title character: Romeo’s jilted lover, the cousin of Juliet.  The picture will be set in the time of the classic Shakespearean tale, but will use modern language to tell its story and is based loosely on Rebecca Serle’s novel, When You Were Mine.  As THR reports, no actors are currently attached, although previous reports had Allison Williams and Deborah Ann Woll vying for the title role, and Dave Franco and Lily Collins in talks to play Romeo and Juliet.
