West Side Story (2021) Release Date: December 10, 2021

West Side Story (2021) is directed by Steven Spielberg. The movie is based on the 1961 movie and Broadway musical of the same name.

The original film was directed by Robert Wise, who won an Oscar for directing the film. Wise went on to win another Best Director Oscar four years later for directing The Sound Of Music.

West Side Story tells the tale of two youngsters from rival New York City gangs who fall in love. However, tensions between their respective friends build toward tragedy.

Natalie Wood and George Chakiris headlined the original film.

Baby Driver star Ansel Elgort has nabbed the male lead in Steven Spielberg’s take on West Side Story. He plays Tony, a role first portrayed by Larry Kert in the original 1957 Broadway musical. Richard Beymer played the role in the 1961 movie.

Oscar nominated screenwriter and Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner has written the adaptation of the 1957 musical originally penned by Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim with music by Leonard Bernstein.
