Doing a remake is seldom an act of artistic bravery, but it’s arguably the case with Spielberg’s new feature adaptation of the musical “West Side Story,” the release of which was delayed to December 2021 due to the pandemic. While the original is beloved by generations, Spielberg made sure the Sharks’ story in his version is more authentically Puerto Rican in both the casting and the telling. It’s not the only singing-and-dancing project on Spielberg’s plate, either. The filmmaker is producing a Broadway musical based on the 2012 TV series “Smash” and a movie version of the musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s novel “The Color Purple,” which he brought to the screen sans songs in 1985 and reeled in Oscar noms and wins.
