Emma Watson & Miles Teller In Talks To Star In A Musical About Struggling Actors In L.A.?! We Dig It!
The movie-musical comes from the brain of Damien Chazelle and it's appropriately titled La La Land!
It's plot would center around a pair of aspiring actors in L.A. who, obviously, fall in love with one another.
However, they soon discover that their love may not be as perfect as they think because the struggles of being an aspiring creative in Los Angeles takes a toll on their relationship!
According to the "look-book" for La La Land, Damien wants to "capture the spirit of the city" in the film.
'I'd like to make a contemporary musical about L.A., starting with the L.A. we know but slowly building to a vision of the city as romantic metropolis–one that is actually worthy of the dreams it inspires. I'd like to make a musical about the way L.A.'s peculiar rhythms can push its residents to the edge of their emotions–be they hope, desperation or love..
At its core, this is a movie about artists in love–and what it means to be an artist in love in arguably the most competitive city on the planet.
I hope to capture the spirit of the city I now call home, and make a movie that feels both classical and urgent–and, yes, intrinsically L.A.'
Sounds innnneresting and incredibly inspiring! But, we do have ask…
Can Emma and Miles sing? We've never heard either of them… BUT if they can, they'll be PERFECT!
Though, we think we'll see the film regardless!
