Damien Chazelle’s next project, a historical drama set in the golden age of Hollywood, was revealed in July 2019. With Emma Stone and Brad Pitt in the running to star, Lionsgate was the favorite to purchase the movie. The film was bought by Paramount Pictures in November, with Stone and Pitt still circling positions. Pitt announced his involvement in the project in January 2020, describing it as taking place when the silent cinema period gave way to sound. He’ll play a fictitious character based on John Gilbert, an actor, and director.

Stone left the project in December 2020 owing to schedule difficulties, with Margot Robbie in early talks to replace her, and Li Jun Li cast to play Anna May Wong. Clara Bow will be played by Robbie in March 2021, with Jovan Adepo and Diego Calva also joining the cast. The cast was expanded in June with the additions of Katherine Waterston, Max Minghella, Flea, Samara Weaving, Rory Scovel, Lukas Haas, Eric Roberts, P.J. Byrne, Damon Gupton, Olivia Wilde, Spike Jonze, Phoebe Tonkin, and Tobey Maguire. Jean Smart joins the cast in July 2021. Chloe Fineman, Jeff Garlin, and Troy Metcalf joined the cast of the film in August 2021.
