Emma Watson and Miles Teller are currently in talks for the musical La La Land.

Whiplash writer-director Damien Chazelle want the pair for his upcoming musical, which centres around lonely aspiring actress Mia (Watson) who falls for cocky jazz pianist Sebastian (Teller) in Los Angeles, according to The Wrap.

The couple soon realise the challenge of staying together in the cut-throat industry of entertainment.

Watson will appear next in Regression alongside Ethan Hawke, and Teller will be seen in the Fantastic Four reboot and Divergent sequel Insurgent.
