Before we all transfer to Chazellefans.com,

Still no topic on it,

Musical comedy, Shoots March 2015 with Miles Teller and Emma Watson, he described it as his passion project
"Most current musicals are based on stage musicals (like Chicago) or other properties, so it’s really cool Lionsgate are letting us do a totally original musical. Even the few other original musicals made today have diegetic justification for the music, like Once. Now I love Once, but the music is all on screen, as opposed to older musicals where orchestra just swells up behind the actor. Or take the film Enchanted from a few years ago, which I thought was great, but it had a high concept to justify the music – she was a storybook character. There hasn’t been a movie in a while where the music just swells up for no reason other than that the characters are moved and want to break into song.”

Chazelle? I'm totally on the board with whatever the fuck he makes after Whiplash.

Beast of the Southern Wild was pretty great, so I'm not sure what you're talking about.

I mustn't have thought it was all that good then.

Actually I didn't mind it, but the adoration was obscene.

Loved Whiplash and the concept sounds very good so I'm in.
