Not only will Spielberg work to make this film politically correct he will also make anti-Trump liberals incredibly happy.
Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg will be directing his first musical — a remake of the 1961 Academy Award-winning classic "West Side Story" about a Puerto Rican gang facing off against a white American gang on the streets of New York. Fearing a potential backlash, the director recently met with students and faculty at the University of Puerto Rico to hear their perspective on how they should be represented.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Spielberg, along with screenwriter Tony Kushner and other members of the "West Side Story" creative team, made a secret visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico last month where they met with as many as 60 invitees to discuss ways to avoid portraying Puerto Ricans in the same stereotypical light as the original.
Spielberg concluded by suggesting to his audience that the film will be a critique of the Trump administration's hardline stance against immigration, which he portrayed as racially motivated.
"This will always be Romeo and Juliet," Spielberg said. "But it also speaks a lot to what’s happening today in terms of what’s happening at the borders. It’s very relevant today to essentially the rejection of anyone who isn’t white. And that’s a big part of our story."
