Damien Chazelle Will Present ‘Babylon’ Footage at TIFF

It turns out, that not only will Damien Chazelle be having an “In Conversation With …” at TIFF, but he will also be presenting exclusive footage of his upcoming “Babylon.”

Not much else is currently known about what will be shown. Maybe it’s the same trailer shown at Comic-Con earlier this summer or maybe, as I’m being told, it’s actual non-interrupted footage of “Babylon.”

TIFF boss Cameron Bailey will be moderating the conversation with Chazelle on Monday, September 12th. The “La La Land” filmmaker will talk about his impressive directorial career and what lies ahead in the future for him.

“Babylon” is currently slated to roll out in theaters on Christmas Day. The film stars Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Diego Calva and Jean Smart. It is said that Chazelle’s upcoming epic runs at a whopping 3 hours.

Don’t worry, he was unfazed and merely used the moment to berate his prop’s guy.

Damien Chazelle’s Hollywood Epic ‘Babylon’ Delayed to 2022

The next film from Oscar-winning La La Land and Whiplash filmmaker Damien Chazelle is being pushed out of 2021 and into 2022, with Paramount Pictures shifting its release date a full year.

The highly anticipated film is described as an epic set in Hollywood during the 1920s, as Tinseltown is on the cusp of transitioning from the silent era to “talkies.” It follows a number of Hollywood figures both historical and fictional, and Chazelle already has Brad Pitt set in a lead role with Margot Robbie in talks to co-star.

The R-rated drama was originally set for release on December 25, 2021, but likely due to COVID restrictions delaying filming, Paramount has pushed the movie’s release date back a full year to December 25, 2022 with a wide release on January 6, 2023. No doubt Paramount is positioning this one for a major Oscar campaign, hence the importance of the awards-friendly release date.
