Kaitlyn Dever Unveils First Look Of Hulu’s Rosaline Inspired By Romeo And Juliet

Kaitlyn Dever is taking on a Shakespearean love triangle with her next role. The movie is based on the 2010 novel When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle.

The Golden Globe nominee, 24, stars as the eponymous lead in Hulu’s Rosaline, inspired by the previously-unseen Romeo and Juliet character. Dever’s portrayal of Rosaline was unveiled on Thursday during Disney+ Day with the announcement of the movie’s 2022 premiere.

However, Rosaline is characterized as “a fresh comedic twist on Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet in which the classic love story is told from the perspective of Juliet’s cousin Rosaline…who just happens to be Romeo’s ex-girlfriend,” according to a plot summary from Disney.

Dever stars alongside Isabela Merced as Juliet, Kyle Allen as Romeo, Bradley Whitford as Friar Laurence, and Minnie Driver as The Nurse. The flick is helmed by Karen Maine and penned by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. However, the movie is based on the 2010 novel When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle.

Dever took to her official Instagram handle to share the first image of herself in character which was met with praise in the comments. She captioned the picture, “I am SO excited for this one.” Meanwhile, Beanie Feldstein commented, “It’s honestly too much!” “Coming out as straight,” Noah Galvin wrote. “Marry me,” Joey King added. “Been waiting for this one!!!” AnnaSophia Robb replied while Billie Lourd reacted with a series of exclamation points.

Dever has earlier appeared in Bad Teacher, J. Edgar, Short Term 12, Beautiful Boy, and Booksmart. Her most recent movie credit includes Ben Platt in the feature adaptation of the Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen. While she can currently be seen in the Hulu limited series Dopesick.
