Kaitlyn Dever stars in ROSALINE, streaming this Fall on Disney+’s Star banner.
“Rosaline” is a fresh and comedic twist on Shakespeare’s classic love story “Romeo & Juliet,” told from the perspective of Juliet’s cousin Rosaline (Dever), who also happens to be Romeo’s recent love interest. Heartbroken when Romeo (Kyle Allen) meets Juliet (Isabela Merced) and begins to pursue her, Rosaline schemes to foil the famous romance and win back her guy. Directed by Karen Maine (“Yes, God, Yes”), the film also stars Sean Teale (“Skins”), with Minnie Driver (“Speechless”) and Bradley Whitford (“The Handmaid’s Tale”). The screenplay is by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (“500 Days of Summer”), based on the novel “When You Were Mine” by Rebecca Serle. The producers are Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen and Dan Levine, with Kaitlyn Dever, Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber and Emily Morris serving as executive producers.
Some new Stills:
ROSALINE streams October 14, 2022 on Disney+ under its Star banner.
Primetime EMMY and SAG Award winner Bradley Whitford is no stranger to Toronto, having been hard at work on Hulu’s THE HANDMAID’S TALE, joining the acclaimed Series since its second season as Commander Joseph Lawrence. His celebrated body of work needs no introduction: The West Wing, Transparent, Get Out, Tick, Tick… Boom! are perfect showcases for his immense talent.
So jealous that he’s been spotted around town, but I finally had my own sighting of him as he was out enjoying a quiet dinner by himself! And he was so amazingly nice, stopping for a Snap walking on-foot. And look how matchy we are! No fancy SUV or Driver as you might think someone of his stature would have. He’s casual and we love it! Honourary Torontonian!
Whitford next can be seen with Kaitlyn Dever in upcoming Hulu/Disney+ release ROSALINE. The Film is an updated take on Romeo & Juliet, told through Juliet‘s cousin’s eyes. Cannot wait!
