Bringing together the best of both Broadway and Hollywood, West Side Story, brings the classic musical back to the silver screen. Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Tony Kushner, the musical tells the classic tale of fierce rivalries and young love in 1957 New York City.
This reimagining of the beloved musical stars Ansel Elgort (Tony); Rachel Zegler (María); Ariana DeBose (Anita); David Alvarez (Bernardo); Mike Faist (Riff); Josh Andrés Rivera (Chino); Ana Isabelle (Rosalía); Corey Stoll (Lieutenant Schrank); Brian d’Arcy James (Officer Krupke); and Rita Moreno (as Valentina, who owns the corner store in which Tony works).
West Side Story has been adapted for the screen from the original 1957 Broadway show. Like the musical it will feature music by Leonard Bernstein with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The musical is slated for a release in December 2021.
