This is NOT OK by us in A-mer-ica!

Fox has reportedly unlocked the title West Side Story, making it available for a remake! Why?

Because Steven Spielberg is interested in the project!

No! Steven, you are obvi a very accomplished filmmaker, but why mess with perfection?!

You used to get inspired by old movies and make amazing new versions of them- like how Indiana Jones was a big budget version of adventure serials!

And you didn't remake Sergeant York- you made a new classic WWII movie with Saving Private Ryan!

Please, by all means, like all of us, LOVE West Side Story, be INSPIRED by West Side Story, dance along in your underwear to West Side Story (is that last one just us?)-

But don't remake West Side Story. Make your own story.

    Agree!! Hasn't Hollywood learned anything about remakes — nine out of 10 fail, miserably. Or else, like Psycho, they shoot it frame-for-frame and change nothing except the stars which no one went to see. There's enough crap coming out of Hollywood — why destroy the memory of classic movies!

    I do sometimes get frustrated by the lack of creativity in Hollywierd, but Westside Story is basically a retelling of Romeo & Juliet. Great stories and great writing is something that every generation should have an opportunity to explore and adapt for modern times. I personally think Naya Rivera would SLAY Maria and a modern Westside Story would be a great opportunity to feature Latin actors.

    Please remake it, and this time cast an Hispanic girl as Maria — not a white girl with body make-up and a bad fake accent. I love Natalie Wood, but come on. . .

    What is it with theses movie execs are trying to remake great classics? Footloose, West Side Story, and the one that really gets me, Dirty Dancing! They don't even respect Patrick Swayze by remaking it. Did they finally run out of ideas? Leave the great movies ALONE!!

    Steven Spielberg…if you're listening in: Please do NOT even THINK of remaking the great, golden, venerable keeper of a classic musical movie, West Side Story!! This movie is fantastic as it is! If it ain't broke, please DON'T fix it! Thanks.

    Hollywood has run out of creative ideas! THAT'S why they're recycling and remaking a lot of older movies today, and why West Side Story's up for consideration for a remake. Disgust!
