Damien ChazelleDamien Chazelle, the Oscar-winning director of "La La Land," is tackling another musical project, but this time for the small screen.

THR reports that Chazelle is attached to direct "The Eddy," which is described as "a musical drama set in contemporary multicultural Paris that revolves around a club, its owner, the house band and the volatile city that surrounds them."

The other talent associated with the project is pretty impressive as well: Jack Thorne, who wrote the play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child," is the screenwriter; Grammy-winning songwriter Glen Ballard, who co-wrote Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill" and Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror"; and Alan Poul ("Six Feet Under") will executive produce.

It's probably too much to expect Ryan Gosling or Emma Stone to reteam for the project. But Gosling and Chazelle are reuniting on the next big-screen project, "First Man," a biopic of astronaut Neil Armstrong -- a film that we're guessing will involve zero piano playing or classic jazz.
