Reports suggest that Damien Chazelle will feature an all-star ensemble to share the screen alongside Brad Pitt and Emma Stone.
As per reports, Emma Stone will portray Clara Bow, an iconic film star. She is known as Hollywood’s first ‘it’ girl.
On the other hand, Brad Pitt will play a fictional character. He will be a silent film star who fails to make the transition to the new technology.
Reports suggest that the actor will portray John Gilbert, a real-life figure, who rose to fame with the silent films.
It is also speculated that celebrities including Meryl Streep, Tobey Maguire, and Michael B Jordan will be a part of Damien Chazelle’s Babylon.
According to reports, Meryl Streep is considered for the role of British author, journalist, and screenwriter Elinor Glyn.
On the other hand, Tobey Maguire might portray the ace Hollywood producer Irving Thalberg and Michael B Jordan will essay the role of a fictional musician, who is modelled on Louis Amstrong.
Meanwhile, Emma Stone is expected to portray Clara Bow.
‘Babylon 2021’ Movie Premise
Very little has been revealed about the movie details.
The narrative of Babylon (2021) will follow the transition from silent films to talkies. Similar to Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’, the movie will see both fictional and real characters.
It will portray the Golden Age of Hollywood. It would be quite interesting to watch if Chazelle will be able to do justice to the critically acclaimed silent film era.
The mixture of two film eras to sketch out Hollywood’s tremendous success would be exciting.
There is no trailer for ‘Babylon (2021)’ at the moment.
Witnessing a movie of such a reputed director has always been a pleasure for movie fanatics and critics. Let’s see what new does this director brings in his 6th movie.
‘Babylon’ release date: when is it coming out ?
Paramount pictures landed the worldwide rights to Babylon, according to reports. Insiders said Paramount was competing with Lionsgate to land the distribution rights.
Insiders added the studio was previously dated the film for a Dec. 25, 2021 limited release, with planed to go wide on Jan. 7.
But Paramount has pushed the movie’s release date back a full year to December 25, 2022 with a wide release on January 6, 2023, due to COVID restrictions delaying filming.
Babylon (2021) is coming out in 2022 on December 25, 2022 (Limited release).
If Paramount thinks they have a serious contender on their hands, I assume they’ll also put the movie on the festival circuit since it’s rare for a movie to debut in December without any festival presence and go on to win Best Picture.
Still, by putting together Oscar-winners Chazelle, Stone, and Pitt, you’ve got a potent combination.
I hope this project holds together because I’m eager to see Chazelle continue to explore America’s past like he did with First Man but combining it with his love of Hollywood like he did with La La Land.
So, these are the major information about the film. It looks like we’ll be waiting quit some time before we see Pitt in action. Are you excited for it? Do share your thoughts about it in the comments section given at the end of this post.
