El­gort feels pretty great

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Steven Spiel­berg has found his lead­ing man for the leg­endary di­rec­tor’s re­make of clas­sic mu­si­cal West Side Story.

Baby Driver and Hunger Games star Ansel El­gort (pic­tured, right) will play Tony in the up­dated tale of war­ring New York City gangs the Jets and the Sharks.

Also nab­bing a new role in a re­boot is Sam Claflin after he joined El­iz­a­beth Banks’ mod­ern take on Char­lie’s An­gels.

Claflin’s part re­mains a mys­tery for now but he will line up along­side tit­u­lar trio Kris­ten Ste­wart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balin­ska in the Septem­ber 2019 re­lease.
