One of the most anticipated films for this year has always been Damien Chazelle’s successor to Oscar winner La La Land. The flick in question is Babylon, a look at Old Hollywood that was initially supposed to reunite Chazelle with Emma Stone, who won an Oscar for their first collaboration. Well, that won’t happen for two reasons. First, Stone won’t be part of the movie, but more on that later. The other reason? This has to do with Paramount postponing the film to 2022.

Paramount moved Babylon for Christmas Day next year, and that makes sense. With COVID-19 ceasing production for so many films, it is clear that this film never began filming. In addition, Emma Stone had to step out of the lead role opposite Brad Pitt, with Margot Robbie likely to take the lead.

Here is part of their story:
Separately tonight announced that Damien Chazelle’s Hollywood picture Babylon starring Brad Pitt is dated for a limited theatrical release on December 25, 2022, with a major hiatus on January 6, 2023. The deadline brought the news about the project first, reporting last month that Margot Robbie is in early talks to join in and take over Emma Stone, who got off.
The film is an R-rated drama set in Hollywood as the industry shifted from silent movies to talkies. When Paramount acquired the picture in late 2019, a price for qualifying for Christmas Day 2021 with a large berth was published on January 7th. The image is produced by Olivia Hamilton, Matt Plouffe, Marc Platt and Tobey Maguire.
