Flash forward 60 years, and Moreno is once again appearing in West Side Story.” This time, it’s the Steven Spielberg remake. She was also an executive producer on the project, and she says it was a real honor to be asked to participate. Especially, she told us, since Steven Spielberg is a huge fan of the film and went out of his way to make it a special experience. (Click on the media bar below Rita Moreno)
