    Apparently she was in the running to play Maria in this Spielberg remake but was pipped to the post. SHAME!

    The role went to a high school student who you can hear below singing an unknown song



    Ansel Elgort is playing Tony

    Ansel Elgort is fit. The girl is giving me irritating Rachel from Glee vibes, but nobody is as irritating as Camila Cabello, so it's okay.

    Isn't Tony supposed to be Latino? Weird choice to whitewash that role in 2019.

    It's the Sharks that are the Puerto Rican gang, whereas the Jets are white, so its the Maria role that will have the whitewashing controversy rather than the Tony one.

    Apparently, she's Colombian-American which I guess is close enough to keep them out of trouble?

    Yeah, there won't be any controversy over her casting.

    I watched the first thirty minutes in a dance class once and found it unbearable.

    I haven't seen the original (that run time :zombie:) but the musical is fabulous. Looking forward to this.

    A woman has accused Ansel Elgort, star of Disney’s upcoming Steven Spielberg movie “West Side Story,” of sexually assaulting her in 2014 when she was 17.

    The woman named Gabby, who did not reveal her last name, tweeted a statement on Friday and claimed the actor, now 26, sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager. Gabby described sobbing and being in pain and said, “I didn’t want to do it the only words that came out of his mouth were ‘we need to break you in.'”

    Gabby said that in 2014, she direct messaged Elgort letting him know that it would soon be her 17th birthday and said Elgort then gave her his private Snapchat account and asked for nude photos. She also posted a photo of what appeared to be her sitting with Elgort as well as what she said is a screenshot of their direct message exchange. Gabby said she was coming forward now “so I can finally heal.”

    The woman added, “Years later, I have PTSD, I have panic attacks I go to therapy.”

    Gabby further described Elgort requesting a threesome with herself and one of her “dance friends,” who she said were also underage. Gabby said she did not tell anyone because he told her it would “ruin his career.” She added there is “much more” to her story.

    “He made me think this is how sex was supposed to be. I WAS SO YOUNG AND HE KNEW THAT. He as well said stuff like, ‘you’re going to be such a beautiful young lady when you’re older.” I was f—ing 17,” she said in her statement.
