Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling Will Make Sweet Music Together in an Upcoming Film
I am in the small minority of folks that did not care for Whiplash, so I can't say I am rushing to see another film from writer/director Damien Chazelle, even if it does star Ryan Gosling. The actor has re-teamed for a third time with Emma Stone in Chazelle's next film, LA LA LAND, for Summit Entertainment. (You might recall the two starred in the unfortunate 2011 comedy, Crazy, Stupid Love, and 2013's Gangster Squad).
At any rate, LA LA LAND is described as a musical, which means there will likely be singing and dancing. So...this will be interesting. More in the synopsis:
In this modern take on the Hollywood musical from Damien Chazelle, the Academy Award-nominated writer and director of WHIPLASH, Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma Stone) are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.
LA LA LAND will open on July 15 in wide release. Thoughts?
