“Whiplash” director’s new film to open 73rd Venice Film Festival

Damien Chazelle, director of Whiplash, is set to make his return to the big screen with his new feature, La La Land. The film is scheduled to open the 73rd Venice Film Festival in Italy, where it will have its world premiere on August 31. The Venetian screening will also mark the film’s world premiere.


La La Land is a musical romance set in Los Angeles. It tells the love story between Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician who scrapes by playing piano gigs in dingy bars.


Chazelle’s new film re-unites him with Whiplash composer Justin Hurwitz, who co-wrote the score of songs in La La Land along with the Tony-nominated team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.


La La Land’s U.S. theatrical release is set for December 2.
