Holly Hunter in talks to join Hailee Steinfeld in Romeo and Juliet
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Oscar winner (it’s been a while, but it’s true) Holly Hunter has lined up a couple of film projects to keep her busy when she’s not filming ‘Saving Grace’. First up for Ms. Hunter is the drama STILL I RISE about a couple of parents that team up to improve the education system at their children’s inner city school. She joins a cast that includes Maggie Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis and Oscar Isaacs. Holly Hunter just seems like the type of woman that would take on a school district. STILL I RISE is set to be directed by Daniel Barnz.
After that, she’s in talks to join TRUE GRIT’s Hailee Steinfeld in the upcoming re-imagining of ROMEO AND JULIET. The film will be directed by Carlo Carlei. No word yet on who Hunter will play in either film.
