  |  @   |  

20th Century Fox has released its first look at Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of 1957’s West Side Story. Based on the Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise film of the same name starring Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer, this latest iteration of the beloved musical, which takes inspiration from Romeo and Juliet, pairs Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler as Tony and Maria, respectively.

Steven Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’ Finds Its Maria In NJ High School Student Rachel Zegler

Steven Spielberg‘s West Side Story has found its actress to play Maria opposite Ansel Elgort‘s Tony.

It’s been confirmed that New Jersey high school student Rachel Zegler will be playing the iconic role of Maria, the love interest of Tony, who is a member of a rival street gang. Natalie Wood played Maria in the 1961 original. The film was ahead of its time and one of the few to feature a richly diverse cast that had people of color in lead roles. It was one that helped Rita Moreno, who played Anita in the original and has a role in this new take on the story, to become the iconic figure that she is now.

And before you question whether or not Zegler can sing, I suggest you take a look at the video of her singing a cover of “Shallows” from A Star Is Born. It left me floored. Check out who will be joining Zegler on the cast and the video, below.
