Steven Spielberg is directing the re-make, set to shoot this summer.
If you're anyone who loves musicals, heck just incredible films in general, then I don't need to explain to you what West Side Story is.
Fast forward to 2019! Steven Spielberg is directing a remake (shooting begins this summer) and they recently announced who's been cast as the leads! Here's a look...
Maria — played by Natalie Wood then and Rachel Zegler now:
Tony — played by Richard Beymer then and Ansel Elgort now:
Anita — played by Rita Moreno then and Ariana DeBose now:
Bernardo — played by George Chakiris then and David Alvarez now:
Chino — played by Jose De Vega then and Josh Andrés Rivera now:
Doc — played by Ned Glass then and by Rita Moreno now:
Riff, who was played by Russ Tamblyn in 1961, has yet to be cast/announced for the new film... so STAY TUNED!
Here come the Jets! (And Sharks and EVERYONE!)
