(Los Angeles, CA) — It’s official, gang rivals the “Jets” and “Sharks” will once again face-off on the streets of New York City in Steven Spielberg’s remake of a “West Side Story.” Spielberg’s official casting call seeks to find a “non white-washed cast” and the classic romantic musical will be written by Tony winning writer Tony Kushner. The official 20th Century Fox casting call specifically seeks Latinas for the roles of Maria and Anita and a Latino for the role of Bernardo. Producers are only searching for one Caucasian to play the headlining role of the hopeless romantic — Tony. Producers say all cast members must speak Spanish and would prefer Puerto Ricans in supporting roles.
