Damien Chazelle directing the contemporary musical…

Miles Teller is reportedly looking to reunite with his ‘Whiplash’ writer-director Damien Chazelle for the musical ‘La La Land,’ with Emma Watson (‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’) lined up for the female lead.

The folks over at TheWrap describe the film as “a two-hander that follows a pair of dreamers — aspiring actress Mia, who’s lonely desperate to fit in, and cocky yet charismatic jazz pianist Sebastian — who fall in love in Los Angeles. However, the city that brought them together may tear them apart, as they soon discover that balancing love and art in such a cutthroat climate isn’t easy.”

‘La La Land’ is set up over at Lionsgate with Jordan Horowitz (‘The Kids Are All Right’) producing via Gilbert Films, along with Fred Berger (‘ Taking Chance ‘) of Impostor Pictures.
