Ansel Elgort continues rising through the Hollywood ranks, embarking on a spectacular career trajectory most actors his age would honestly dream of.
Tony used to be part of the Jets, though his status is now hazy, and he and a local girl called Maria meet each other and begin to fall in love, despite the differences that others say are supposed to keep them apart.
West Side Story, of course, is the classic modern-day urban riff on Romeo and Juliet that was first a popular musical and then an Oscar-gobbling movie from 1961, starring Natalie Wood, Rita Moreno, plus future Twin Peaks scene stealers Richard Beymer (who played Tony) and Russ Tamblyn (who played fun-loving Riff - a far, far, far cry from gold shovel fanatic Dr. Jacoby).
Ansel Elgort has been announced as Steven Spielberg's pick to star as Tony in his new film adaptation of West Side Story, featuring a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize and Tony victor Tony Kushner (Angels in America;Caroline, or Change). The story takes place in 1950s NY and is a retelling of Romeo and Juliet.
Lindsay Lohan Punched by Mother After Trying to Take Her Son Lohan's representatives have yet to respond to the live stream, which was swiftly taken down in the early hours of the morning. The video appears to end when the mother of the family attacks Lohan, who then stops following them down the street.
At its core, West Side Story centers on a tale of star-crossed lovers.
Spielberg is directing from Tony Kushner's adaptation of the 1957 musical, which was originally written by Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim with music by Leonard Bernstein, and concept, direction, and choreography by Jerome Robbins.
The role of Maria has still to be cast. Elgort has previously starred in Baby Driver, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Divergent Series.
The stakes are high for the rivaling factions of the Upper West Side, and these conflicts underscore the ultimate tragedy of Tony and Maria's relationship.
West Side Story parallels the story of Romeo and Juliet in 1950s NY, featuring white and Puerto Rican rival gangs.
