Emma Stone is NOT starring in La La Land on Broadway, despite a report that’s both late and wrong. Gossip Cop can set the record straight for the second time.

“Is ‘La La Land’ Heading To Broadway, With Emma Stone?” asks RadarOnline, which claims, “The most nominated musical of the year may be taking its success to a whole new level.” It’s specifically alleged, “The record-making fave rave musical’s now aimed like a burning bullet at Broadway where luscious Best Actress Oscar-winner Emma Stone will unsheathe her gorgeous ivory gams and tippity-tap down Gotham’s legendary great white way.”

The webloid quotes a so-called “spy” as saying, “The deal’s deep in super-secret negotiations because honchos are paranoid about leaking the bombshell news.” If that sounds familiar, it’s because the site’s discredited sister outlet, the National Enquirer, published this quote from a “source” back in January, “The deal’s deep in super-secret negotiations because honchos are paranoid about leaking the bombshell news before the Oscars.”

Now a month and a half later, and a few weeks after the Academy Awards, the online version of the quote conveniently omits the Oscar reference. The Internet-based story also makes no mention of Ryan Gosling, whom the tabloid said was in talks with Stone for La La Land on Broadway. Gossip Cop accurately busted the print story, and this new take focusing just on Stone is as wrong as the original.

While one of the film’s producers, Marc Platt, has expressed interest in exploring the possibility of a live stage show, no Broadway production is actually in the works, with or without Stone. Should that one day change, Gossip Cop will have the real announcement. But right now, RadarOnline has just sloppily regurgitated the National Enquirer, which wrongly jumped the gun.
