'In The Heights' Filmed on the Same Streets as 'West Side Story': 'There Was a Fun Rivalry'

The streets are crowded these days!

Director Jon M. Chu revealed in an interview with The Wrap that In The Heights was filmed in the same spot as Steven Spielberg‘s upcoming West Side Story in Washington Heights, New York.

The two movies were both filming in the summer of 2019.

“We were right there in each other’s back some days. There was one day where their catering truck was literally in our shot and we had to go over there and be like, ‘Can you move your catering truck that way, guys, please?’” he revealed, adding that there was a “camaraderie” between the two projects.

“There was like a fun rivalry. All the dancers know each other. There was fighting over who was getting who, but at the end of the day, everyone’s working — how beautiful is it that everyone’s working? And what a great time in the musical space that two of us can exist. I love it when people are like, oh, you guys are like rivals, and you’re like, it only begs the question, why can’t there be two? Why can’t there be more than one musical about LatinX people in New York City? We need to get to that place. If it feels odd, that means something’s wrong,” he continued.

In The Heights just opened in theaters – and you’ll want to stick around for the end credits.
