The image features stars Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler as Tony and Maria as well as members of the rival gangs the Sharks and the Jets.

Spielberg is directing from a script penned Tony Kushner. David Newman will be arranging the score for the new adaptation and Gustavo Dudamel will helm the recording of the score.
