Damien Chazelle in early talks with Emma Stone, Brad Pitt for his subsequent ‘Babylon’ | THE DAILY TRIBUNE
Damien Chazelle is working on his next feature film “Babylon” and the filmmaker wants to reunite with his “La La Land” star Emma Stone for the project.
The makers are also in talks with Brad Pitt to join the film, which will be his second drama in Hollywood after “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. According to the deadline, Chazelle wrote the script and is included to direct the film.
According to sources, neither Stone nor Pitt officially boarded the project. Marc Platt, who produced “La La Land”, is one of the producers of “Babylon” alongside Olivia Hamilton, Matthew Plouffe and Tobey Maguire. The exact details of the plot are not yet known, but the story is said to be set during the transition of the film industry from silent films to talkies.
Chazelle wants to cast Stone in the role of Clara Bow, the early sex icon and box office star in the movie industry. The filmmaker is busy with his Netflix series “The Eddy” while Stone is fresh from the success of Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Favorite” and the TV series “Maniac”.
