A writer has not been selected for the movie, but, due to the three-time Academy Award winner's interest, Fox has unlocked the film for a possible re-make.
West Side Story, with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, opened on Broadway in 1957 and received six Tony nominations, winning Best Choreography and Best Scenic Design. It has been revived in 1964, 1980 and 2009.
