The industry is currently having a love affair with the Damien Chazelle-directed film, about a struggling actress and jazz musician as played by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

On Sunday night (12Feb17), the movie dominated the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards, taking home five of the 11 prizes it was up for. Now, Jordan has teased fans that La La Land may soon be adapted for the West End stage.

"(The movie's songs are) indelible," he said to London's Evening Standard newspaper backstage at the BAFTAs. "I don't necessarily know what the stage musical looks like. I think we'll write more songs and there will be work to do... we'll have to figure out what about the story we want to keep."

He adds that he'd "love" to see the story on the stage and hopes the movie's widespread popularity will lead to a renewed interest in Hollywood musicals because they are "joyful and speak to the exuberance of the human spirit".

La La Land composer Justin Hurwitz, who bagged the Original Music BAFTA, shared that there would be no shortage of songs they could use in a new production, as there were "many, many ideas" that didn't make the final cut, including an unused title track.

"It was going to be in the middle of the movie but we nixed that. Then it was going to be over the end credits and we nixed that at the last minute," he divulged.

Next up for the successful film is the 2017 Oscars on 26 February, where La La Land is in the running for 14 Academy Awards. It ties with Titanic and All About Eve for the most nominations ever.
