I just received some exciting news directly from the team behind “Private Romeo,” last year’s breakout gay military twist on Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” starring Matt Doyle (“War Horse”). They’re planning to finally release the film in a big New York City premiere Feb. 10-15 at the Cinema Village Theatre.
For those who don’t remember, “Private Romeo” is a film I excitedly wrote about back in February 2011 when it was creating early buzz with it’s eye-catching trailer. It is probably the first film to ever deal with gay young people and the military.
Here’s more from the film’s Web site:
