Sources say Chazelle has met with a handful of suitors over the past couple weeks, and Paramount and Lionsgate are both vying to land the project. While Chazelle previously worked with Lionsgate for “La La Land,” one insider added Paramount may have a slight edge in acquiring it given the scope of the film and the budget it would require to undertake it. “Babylon” is a period piece set in the 1920s Hollywood, and Chazelle is looking for an A-list ensemble to make this film his largest production to date.
Precise plot details are vague, but sources say the film will take place during the transition from silent films to talkies and will feature a mix of real-life and fictional characters, similar to Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.” While the exact budget is still to be determined, sources have indicated “Babylon” will mark Chazelle’s biggest undertaking yet, given the all-star ensemble expected to share the screen with Stone.
He needs to work in small scale movie again where he's good at! despite have beautiful look, LLL and First Man suck alot. I think he needs to build his image genre, like Coens with crime etc., in his early career not making random shit just to satisfy his dreams
