Are you ready for a musical with Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone? While many don’t particular think of them for their singing, they’ve both actually opened up their pipes numerous times on screen (after all, Gosling was nearly in N*Sync) and now they’ve teamed up with Whiplash director Damien Chazelle for La La Land.
The film is about a lonely, aspiring actress (Stone) who desperately trying to find her way in Los Angeles. She meets jazz pianist Sebastian (Gosling) and they quickly fall in love. However they soon realise that balancing their art and their relationship isn’t as easy as they thought.
Chazelle has said of the movie, “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.”
The film is due in cinemas this summer, but take a look at the first image above.
