For whatever reason, Robin Hood has become a very hot property.

Details on WB's Robin Hood are being kept under wraps, but Will Beall (Aquaman, Gangster Squad) wrote the script, and Dan Lin (The Lego Movie, Sherlock Holmes) and John Zaozirny are attached to the project as producers.

Exclusive: How hard has Hollywood fallen for the idea of a Robin Hood film? Warner Bros quietly has put one into development, scripted by Gangster Squad and Aquaman scribe Will Beall, and produced by The Lego Movie‘s Dan Lin, and John Zaozirny. They’re keeping the take on this one secret (it’s not Lego, which seems to work for everything), but this makes four major movie projects on the same subject. Sony, Disney and Lionsgate have the others. This latest deal follows… »
This marks the fourth film about the famed outlaw currently in the works, joining Lionsgate and Appian Way's dark origin story "Robin Hood: Origins," Disney's family adventure tale "Nottingham & Hood," and Sony's high-octane action take "Hood" which Jerry Bruckheimer is tipped to produce.
What kind of tale this one will be is being kept secret for now. These projects all follow in the wake of 2010's "Robin Hood" movie from Ridley Scott which garnered $300 million worldwide - but cost a whopping $200 million to produce.

There are no details right now about who, or what, Gosling's character would be in the film. Production is set to begin in Summer of 2016. ...

You might’ve used the expression “The Real McCoy” and not actually known where it came from. Colloquially it refers to something being authentic, or the real deal. In fact, if someone were to name their movie after it, you might presume it was just a romantic comedy.
Well, now super-mega-star Chris Pratt is set to star in a movie about where that expression originated. The Real McCoy is a bootlegging drama about the life of Bill McCoy, a famous rum-runner during Prohibition who, as an American sea captain, shipped and sold illegal liquor across the coast until his capture in 1923. According to urban legend, McCoy touted that his liquor was never “cut”, or watered down, thus the expression “The Real McCoy”. But McCoy is also credited with having essentially created the six pack in order to better carry and ship bottles of rum and whiskey.

Crazy Stupid Love brought together one of contemporary cinema’s most attractive pairings in the shape of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Their electric chemistry outshone the sometimes-wavering material and left audiences feeling all warm and fuzzy at their cutesy story arc. As the duo are now circling a new project, that would fling them back together, will we see more of their romantic rapport onscreen?
By the sounds of it, that’s a resounding yes. According to Deadline, Stone and Gosling are the latest thespian couple in the crosshairs for Damien Chazelle’s romantic musical La La Land, which is described as “an old fashioned musical set in contemporary Los Angeles and centers on a love story between a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress.” Originally, the Whiplash helmer had his drummer boy Miles Teller set to co-star alongside Emma Watson, but the pair dropped out due to various commitments elsewhere. »

La La Land: Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, who previously showed great chemistry in Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad, are now in talks to join the musical La La Land. The modern day-set but old fashioned song-and-dance style movie is writer-director Damien Chazelle's follow-up to Whiplash. The two actors would replace departed leads Miles Teller and Emma Watson. [Deadline] Untitled Shanghai Swat Project: Stuntmen-turned-directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, who made their mark last year with John Wick (pictured above), have signed on to a period-set action movie based on the true story of the first Swat team. The currently untilted movie will focus on real-life British soldier William E. Fairbairn, who is said to have been a major influence on the...

La La Land - a romantic musical set in contemporary Los Angeles - is expected to begin shooting in the autumn, according to Deadline.
The project would reunite Gosling and Stone, who previously worked together on 2011's Crazy, Stupid, Love and 2013's Gangster Squad.
La La Land will centre around aspiring and lonely actress Mia (Stone) and cocky, charismatic jazz pianist Sebastian (Gosling), who fall for each other.
However, the pair soon discover the challenge of making their relationship work in the cut-throat climate of the entertainment industry.
Last summer, we heard Whiplash star Miles Teller was looking to reteam with director Damien Chazelle for a Los Angeles set musical La La Land. At the time, Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson was also in talks for the female lead, but they've both fallen away. Deadline is now reporting that Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad co-stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are circling the film about an aspiring actress named Mia, who's lonely desperate to fit in, and a cocky yet charismatic jazz pianist named Sebastian, who fall in love in Los Angeles. It's a straight-up, contemporary, romantic musical. More below! La La Land is also written by Chazelle, and it certainly sounds different than his Best Picture nominated directorial debut Whiplash. This also sounds like an interesting change of pace for both Gosling and Stone, who we haven't seen sing on the big screen at all yet. »

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are such magnetic personalities individually, it's not a shock that Hollywood has been eager to see what happens when they get matched up on the big screen. Their first effort "Crazy, Stupid, Love" was a decent enough airplane movie that kind of lost it in the third act, while "Gangster Squad" is probably best not discussed. But if all works out, their third film could be the most promising yet. Deadline reports that Gosling and Stone are replacing the previously attached Miles Teller and Emma Watson in "Whiplash" director Damien Chazelle's musical "La La Land." Previously described as a cross between "The Graduate" and "Boogie Nights" (but, obviously, with music), the story is set in Los Angeles, and follows a young couple — actress, Mia and jazz pianist, Sebastian — who try to keep their relationship together in a city of cutthroat careerism.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling have teamed for a film twice before. One was Crazy Stupid Love, and that worked out alright. The second movie was Gangster Squad (above), and the less said about it, the better. But that film’s problems weren’t related to the casting, and we’d be happy to see them work together […]

The film, which Chazelle wrote before his breakout film Whiplash, is described as “an old fashioned musical set in contemporary Los Angeles and centers on a love story between a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress.” It would mark the third time that Gosling and Stone have worked together, having starred in Gangster Squad and Crazy, Stupid, Love previously.
In the early days of the project, Whiplash star Miles Teller was set to star, but he has reportedly moved off the project, as has Emma Watson who was also rumoured, but is to star in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast instead.
The plan is for La La Land to shoot in the fall should deals be made for both the actors. »

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are in talks to star in 'La La Land'. The 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' co-stars are in negotiations with director Damien Chazelle and Lionsgate to star in the upcoming romantic musical after Miles Teller - who played the lead in Chazelle's Oscar-nominated film 'Whiplash' - dropped out, Deadline reports. Although neither Stone, 26, nor Gosling, 34 - who also appeared alongside one another in 'Gangster Squad' - have officially signed up for the film, production is scheduled to begin in autumn with the studio hoping to have the Hollywood stars on board. Chazelle - who is also a screenwriter - penned 'La La Land' before 'Whiplash' and it's described as an old fashioned musical set in contemporary Los Angeles and centres on a love story between a jazz pianists and an aspiring actress. Teller was originally attached to star alongside 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson, »

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 Watson was 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 »
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are in talks to lead Damien Chazelle's romantic musical, La La Land. The film centers on the love story between a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress. La La Land is Chazelle's directorial follow up to Whiplash, which took home the 3 Oscars last year. We reported last summer that Chazelle would re-team with Whiplash star Miles Teller in the role of the pianist, but, per Deadline, Teller has moved on from the project. Likewise, Emma Watson, who was originally attached as the aspiring actress, has departed for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast. When Steve interviewed Chazelle last year, the director cited Singing in the Rain, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, and A Star is Born as influences, and described La La Land as "an old fashioned song and dance". Though the film is conceived in a retro vein, the story is set in contemporary times as a “a big, »

There was a time when it looked liked Whiplash director Damien Chazelle would be reuniting with that film’s star, Miles Teller, and working with Emma Watson on his new, much less violent musical, La La Land. But with Teller out and Watson off to Disney-land for Beauty And The Beast, Chazelle is instead looking at securing Emma Stone for one of the lead roles. And though he’s recently tried to score Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne to co-star with her, it seems likely that Redmayne will be playing Newt Scamander in the Harry Potter series prequel Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, thus knocking him out of the running. According to The Wrap, Chazelle is now looking at a possible Crazy, Stupid, Love / Gangster Squad reunion, with Ryan Gosling his current choice as leading man. There’s no indication that Gosling (who recently sat down for a chat »
