Emma Stone exited Babylon over scheduling issues. (Photos: AP/File)Oscar winner Emma Stone has exited filmmaker Damien Chazelle’s next Babylon, with actor Margot Robbie being in negotiations to fill in her place. Exact plot details are currently under wraps, but the story is said to be set during the movie industry’s transition from silent films to talkies in the 1920s. If the deal goes through, the film will reunite Robbie with Hollywood star Brad Pitt after they worked together in Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 feature Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Marc Platt, who produced La La Land, is one of the producers on Babylon along with Olivia Hamilton, Matthew Plouffe and Tobey Maguire. Stone, who won an Oscar for best actress for Chazelle’s 2016 movie La La Land, left the new project over scheduling issues, according to The Hollywood Reporter.×1.png
