Spielberg to direct `West Side Story` remake?
Los Angeles: Filmmaker Steven Spielberg will reportedly direct `West Side Story` remake.
A leading broadcasting network has apparently unlocked the movie title from its archive in hope that the Academy Award-winning director will helm the project, after he expressed keen interest in remaking the classic musical, reportedly.
Spielberg`s adaptation could see a modern spin on the original `West Side Story`, based on the classic tale of `Romeo and Juliet`, which started off as a Broadway musical in 1957 before being made into a movie in 1961.
The film starred Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno and George Chakiris and was directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins.
