The first image of Steven Spielberg’s new version of West Side Story has been released.
The musical, about young love and the tension between rival gangs the Jets and the Sharks on the streets of 1957 New York, is currently filming.
Ansel Elgort stars as Tony and Rachel Zegler as Maria, the star-crossed lovers, alongside a host of other cast members in the first picture.
Spielberg is adapting the original Broadway musical, which was inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and written by Arthur Laurents, with music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and direction and choreography by Jerome Robbins. Walt Disney Studios will release the film in December 2020.
