Shakespearean is not a language. Romeo and Juliet, as were all of Shakespeare's plays, were written so the general public of the time could understand it, albeit with some of Shakespeare's own little touches. The plays were written in English. That said, I do not know if the film will be in modern English or if it will be following the original play.
