La La Land photos give us a first look at filming for the musical
The photos, taken in Los Angeles, feature stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone (reuniting after Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad), while the film also features recent Academy Award-winner J.K. Simmons playing a character called “Boss,” as well as Jessica Rothe, Sonoya Mizuno and Callie Hernandez playing Stone’s roommates.
The story follows Sebastian (Gosling) and Mia (Stone), who are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts, they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.
Chazelle wrote the script and is directing the film, with Fred Berger, Gary Gilbert, Jordan Horowitz and Marc Platt producing. Summit will release La La Land in theaters on July 15, 2016.
