A journal comic by Chris Pearce

It seems like every time I do Romeo and Juliet in my class, Hollywood has come out with a new spin on the tale. A few years ago, it was Gnomeo and Juliet. I believe there’s a big budget new version of the tale hitting theaters this October with Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet. I’ve even read that ABC just commissioned a series based on updating R&J to the modern era for next season!
For the record, I haven’t read or seen Warm Bodies yet but given the connection to Shakespeare and the interest my students have shown, I’ll get around to it eventually.
