Whiplash and La La Land director Damien Chazelle will reportedly reteam with the latter film’s star Ryan Gosling for an upcoming biopic of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.
Chazelle will direct from a script by Oscar winner Josh Singer (Spotlight), based on James Hansen’s biography “First Man: A Life Of Neil A. Armstrong”.
Filming is expected to start in early 2017.
La La Land, also starring Emma Stone, is currently expanding across US cinemas and will arrive overseas in mid-January. The musical is expected to be a major Oscar contender this year.
