In order to promote diversity, Spielberg has added in multiple black characters to his remake of West Side Story.

He has written in a new main role, Ade, who had to be played by a black actor and went to Broadway star Curtiss Cook.

The original movie tackles issues such as forbidden love, racism and gang violence in New York City

Spielberg's adaptation will see Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zelgar play the main characters
