The trailer of Damien Chazelle’s upcoming movie Babylon is delayed from 2021 Christmas to 2022 Christmas.
Brad Pitt will feature in the upcoming period drama Babylon. The film is set in the golden age of Hollywood. It was announced in July 2019, and Paramount Pictures bought the rights of the project in November. The studio confirmed the involvement of Pitt in January last year. Emma Stone was initially signed for the project, but she left the film for some scheduling conflicts. And shortly after Stone stepped down, Margot Robbie was approached for the role.
According to Deadline’s recent report, Paramount Pictures delayed the release of the periodic movie by one year. The studio shared that the film will release on 25 December 2022 in limited cinemas and will release on a wide scale on 6 January 2023. The movie was originally scheduled for 2021’s Christmas release.
Damien Sayre Chazelle is a director, screenwriter, and producer. He is best known for his movies, including the Academy Award-nominated La La Land, First Man, and Whiplash. The director has received the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Director.
Hollywood is suffering a lot due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And Chazelle’s Babylon is also dealing with such issues, including the shortage of budget. The production of the movie is still on hold due to the lockdown. And the female lead of the movie, Emma Stone, also left the project.
However, the team has not revealed much about the film regarding the plot and cast. The fans of Chazelle are impatiently waiting for his next film after the release of First Man in 2018. Director’s romantic musical, La La Land, received much appreciation. The film has collected a gross of $447.4 million against a budget of $30 million. It also got a positive response from critics. The screenplay and direction of Chazelle were remarkable. La La Land won seven awards at the 74th Golden Globes.
Babylon is one of the most awaited movies. Audiences speculate that the film will be a big hit, just like the 2016’s movie La La Land. Olivia Hamilton, Tobey Maguire, Marc Platt, and Matt Plouffe will produce the film and it will be distributed by Paramount Pictures. Similar to Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Babylon will also feature a mixture of fictional and real-life characters.
