Damien Chazelle Headed To “Babylon”

“La La Land” and “First Man” filmmaker Damien Chazelle is still in production on his first Netflix series “The Eddy,” but he’s already lining up his next feature – “Babylon”.

Deadline reports Chazelle is seeking a studio to support the film which he has penned and will direct next. In fact, Emma Stone is reportedly already looking at possibly starring in the period Hollywood-set tale.

Specifics of the plot are under wraps, but Lionsgate is said to be the apparent front-runner to land the project which requires a significant budget, is dubbed a “bold auteur piece,” and would roughly aim to begin filming next year.

Chazelle’s “The Eddy” series meanwhile follows a New York jazz musician that opens a club in France and finds himself involved with relationship drama with a singer and the appearance of his estranged daughter.

Olivia Hamilton, Matt Plouffe and Marc Platt will produce.
