Maddie Ziegler Joins Huge Cast In Spielberg's 'West Side Story' Film
Maggie Ziegler is the latest (and we think greatest) member of the fast-growing cast of Steven Spielberg‘s highly anticipated West Side Story film.
She is one of over 50 talented dancers, singers and actors who have so far signed up to perform in the timeless tale of rival street gangs.
Dear Evan Hansen actor Mike Faist will play Riff, the leader of the Jets, alongside popular Puerto Rican entertainer Ana Isabelle, who plays the Sharks' Rosalia.
They join David Alvarezis Bernardo, Josh Andrés Rivera, Rita Morenowill, Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler, Ariana DeBose, Corey Stoll and Brian d’Arcy James - among others. Phew!
“One of our largest priorities was to find a caliber of triple-threats who could bring this film to life with great proficiency," choreographer Justin Peck explained. "West Side Story has influenced generations of dancers since its inception, and I am thrilled that we have found this extraordinary group to bring our new vision for the musical to the big screen."
