‘La La Land’ May Reunite Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are circling the romantic musical ‘La La Land’, director Damien Chazelle’s follow-up to ‘Whiplash’.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are both circling the romantic musical La La Land. We first reported on the project back in June 2014, when Miles Teller and Emma Watson were attached to star, but Miles Teller has moved on and Emma Watsonwas forced to drop out due to her commitment to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. No deals are finalized for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone quite yet, but Deadline reports that all parties are trying to make this happen.

The story centers on the budding romance between a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress in modern-day Los Angeles. While both quickly fall for one another, they discover how difficult it is to maintain a relationship along with their artistic endeavors. If both stars sign on, the plan is to move forward and start production sometime this fall. The project would also mark the third movie Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone have starred in together, following Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad

The project will mark writer-director Damien Chazelle‘s follow-up to his critically-acclaimed Whiplash, which was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar, although the filmmaker actually wrote the script for La La Land before Whiplash. Jordan Horowitz (The Kids Are All Right) is producing alongside Fred Berger (Taking Chance). Ryan Gosling recently made his directorial debut with Lost River and he will next be seen on the big screen in The Nice Guys. Emma Stone starred in Best Picture winner Birdman and she will next be seen in Aloha and Irrational Man.

La La Land comes to theaters in 2015 and stars Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone. The film is directed by Damien Chazelle.

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield Are ‘Taking a Break,’ Source Says

The rumors are true – Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are on a break, a source tells PEOPLE.

After three years of dating, the actors seem to have fallen victim to the perils of a long-distance relationship.

Garfield, 31, is currently shooting Martin Scorsese’s new film, Silence, on location in Taiwan – and was noticeably absent from the Golden Globes andOscars, where Stone was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

“He’s thrown himself in the project to the detriment of all else,” the source says of Garfield’s work on the film. “But it’s too early to say the relationship is over.”

“Emma understands his work anxieties – it’s why she originally pulled out of Cabaret last year and only did it this year – but they’re taking a break from seeing each other,” the source explains. “They’re both a slave to their schedules. This time last year they were privately discussing marriage.”

Meanwhile, the former Superbad sweetheart, 26, has been seen spending time with her brother, Spencer, in Los Angeles after wrapping up production on her new film Aloha, starring Bradley Cooper.

Still, there is hope for the Amazing Spider-Man costars to reconcile once Garfield finishes filming in May.

“It’s one of those situations where only Andrew and Emma quite know if they’ll pick up where they left off or they’ve separated,” the source says.”

Another insider confirms that the split is temporary and not an official breakup.

“They are just separated for work,” the source says. “Andrew is overseas. They are both busy with their careers and have not seen each other.”

The couple was last photographed together in New York City’s West Village on Jan. 7. Reps for both have not commented.
