Steven Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’ remake to film in Harlem

By Francesca Bacardi and Melissa Minton

Play it cool, New Yorkers.

Steven Spielberg‘s “West Side Story” remake is heading to Harlem this summer to film, Page Six has exclusively learned. A source told us that the movie is set to shoot outside apartments on 131st Street between Fifth and Lenox avenues in mid-July.

It’s unknown which cast members will appear on that particular set.

Rita Moreno — who won an Oscar for the role of Anita in 1961’s original “West Side Story” movie — confirmed that she’ll appear in Spielberg’s remake as Valentina, a reworked version of the character Doc, the owner of a corner store where Tony works. Ansel Elgort has been cast as Tony.

Set on the Upper West Side, the musical follows two star-crossed lovers, Tony and Maria, who are each associated with rival New York street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Pulitzer-winning playwright Tony Kushner (“Angels in America”) is adapting the script.
