    La La Land is going to be a West End musical

    It was inevitable – ‘La La Land’ is heading to the West End. After almost picking up Best Picture at last night’s Oscar’s, it looks as though the critically-applauded musical drama is being adapted for the West End. According to The Sun, prolific Broadway and West End producer Sonia Friedman revealed that an adaptation of the much-loved movie is already in the works.

    La La Land almost starred Emma Watson, was nearly about rock instead of jazz

    Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone literally shimmer opposite each other and are so charming that you have to resist the urge to try and kiss the big-screen while watching, while director Damien Chazelle instils ‘La La Land’ with a breeziness that’s reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood, and composer Justin Hurwitz’s music is just all kinds of divine. ‘La La Land’ has made a huge impact with audiences, too. Damien Chazelle and Justin Hurwitz devised the idea when studying at Harvard University, where Chazelle graduated in 2007, while it was only the success of ‘Whiplash’ and its five Oscar nominations that convinced Lionsgate to put up the money for Chazelle’s vision of the musical over five years later.

    La La Land is the joyous, vibrant film we need in 2017

    In pole position for this year’s prize is ‘La La Land’, a film arriving as much-needed respite following the many shocks, horrors and uncertainties of 2016. ‘La La Land’ is a mug of hot chocolate after getting caught in a sleet storm. It’s a sincere homage to a bygone Hollywood era, and so there are certainly similarities to be drawn with another Oscar-winner – ‘The Artist’, but none favour the 2012 Best Picture winner. What undoes Michel Hazanavicius’ well-meaning ode to silent movies is its knowing winks, and a single line of illusion-cracking dialogue. ‘La La Land’ by contrast is a wholehearted and true resurrection of a long-forgotten form which pays tribute in all the right ways, but is contemporary also, making the genre work for modern audiences but never trampling its legacy.

    Ryan Gosling's next project is to play moonwalker Neil Armstrong

    Ryan Gosling’s been a busy man in recent years, but 2016 has only seen him star in one movie – Shane Black’s ‘The Nice Guys’ alongside Russell Crowe – but 2017 just got a whole lot busier. With ‘La La Land’ hitting UK cinemas in early January, the ‘Drive’ actor has ‘Blade Runner 2049’ in post-production, with Terrence Malick’s ‘Weightless’ out in March. With Gosling on board after a relatively quiet stint, fans will be glad to see the Canadian back on the big screen after a number of high profiled roles in ‘Gangster Squad’, ‘Only God Forgives’, and ‘The Big Short’ since since 2013.
