Last year, director Damien Chazelle and actor Ryan Gosling presented the biographical drama "Man in the Moon" to the public, but the film failed to fly to the top of the Hollywood Olympus the way La La Land did. Now Chazelle will try his luck with another star from his successful musical - Emma Stone.|
The filmmaker began work on his new project - the film Babylon, which will take place in the 1920s. According to insiders, the project is a Hollywood story about how the industry moved from silent cinema to films with sound. Chazelle wrote the script himself and will lead the filming. Rumor has it that the plot will revolve around fictional characters and real personalities, and one of them will be Clara Bow, a silent movie star and sex symbol of the 20s. Emma Stone is tipped for her role.
It is reported that the budget of "Babylon" will be $ 80-100 million, and not every company is ready to shell out that kind of money for a film in a historical setting, which may not interest the general public. Despite a certain risk, Chazelle is still capable of producing something like La La Landa, which has collected 14 Oscar nominations and $ 446 million at the box office.
Well, for those who doubt the advisability of financing his new project, Chazelle has one more trump card: in addition to Stone, he wants to use Brad Pitt in the film. The bosses of Lionsgate, Paramount and Netflix have already wondered about Babylon, but none of them have officially agreed to support Chazelle yet.
