Did you know that the Ryan Gosling / Emma Stone duo weren’t the first choice to star in the musical “La La Land”, which airs this Monday night on M6?
It is indeed Miles Teller and Emma Watson who should have starred in La La Land. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Teller, who had just worked with Damien Chazelle on Whiplash, would have been too greedy financially, demanding more than the fee of $ 4 million offered. Negotiations with the studio dragged on, the studio did not waver, and Miles Teller finally shot the third installment of the SF Divergent saga.
Emma Watson, for her part, was not part of the La La Land adventure for another reason. The Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter saga simply had an inconsistent schedule: she was in the middle of preparing for the live version of Beauty and the Beast, as she explained. at the Entertainment Weekly microphone. Ironically, Ryan Gosling had refused the role of the Beast to play in … La La Land!
Miles Teller and Emma Watson must have had some regrets. La La Land, which hit theaters in 2017, was a huge public and critical success, lauding its two main cast, who ended up after Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad. Emma Stone notably won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance.
These romantic comedies could have had … another couple!
