National Theatre to make original film of Josh O’Connor, Jessie Buckley in ‘Romeo & Juliet’
The production will be filmed at the Lyttelton Theatre building on London’s South Bank.

The UK’s National Theatre (Nt) is to make its first original film with a screen production of William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet starring Josh O’Connor and Jessie Buckley.

The production was first announced last year, intended for stage at the National Theatre’s Lyttelton theatre in London this summer.

That theatrical run was withdrawn due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the Nt has reimagined it as a 90-minute filmed version, directed by Nt associate Simon Godwin, and adapted for screen by Emily Burns.
