‘Romeo and Juliet: The War’ Movie is in development at Lionsgate.
The novel is a reimagining of William Shakespeare’s classic “Romeo and Juliet” tale, created by Stan Lee and Terry Dougas of 1821 Media, written by Max Work with illustrations by Skan Srisuwan.
“What a treat it is to finally announce our partnership with Lionsgate on a project,” said Lee. “The story of Romeo and Juliet is one of my absolute favorites, and I can’t wait to bring our rendition of this classic to life.”
The book was a New York Times bestseller following its publication in 2012. It was also published in a limited giant edition that set the Guinness World Record for the largest graphic novel.
