Finally after all this time and after all the remakes that seem to be the latest trend in movies. We have the widely popular West Side Story Remake. The original West Side Story originally debuted in 1961, which was an adaptation of 1951 Broadway Musical also called West Side Story.

The new film will be made in a modern day setting, with a Romeo and Juliet vibe. Rita Moreno will be joining the newly remake. We all look forward to this one, and perhaps engage the younger crowd to revisit the original West Side Story.
