Romeo and Juliet Reboot “When You Were Mine” May Hit Theaters before the Shelves
Audiences around the world are accustomed to good books quickly being turned and around and adapted for the big screen. A developing twist in this trend may finally see an adaptation hit theaters ahead of the book arriving on shelves.
The classic story of star crossed lovers has recently been retold from a different angle by author Rebecca Serle in her upcoming book “When You Were Mine”, and it appears that before it can hit bookshelves, it will hit movie theaters. Serle’s take on the story views it from Rosaline’s point of view.
Publishing house Simon & Schuster will not be printing the book until May 2012, but reports are already surfacing that a feature film is in development with Keira Knightly cast in the lead.
