"Babylon" pushed to 2022

Deadline is reporting that Damien Chazelle's period film, Babylon, now has a new release date of December 25, 2022.  With Covid delaying numerous projects, it seemed inevitable that this was going to be pushed back. I've read the script, and there are many many people in close contact in multiple scenes. 

The film is set during the industry's transition from silent films to "talkies." Emma Stone had been attached in the lead role of portraying Clara Bow, but exited the project last month (she's pregnant). Margot Robbie is rumored to be taking her place, with Brad Pitt attached from the start in the lead male role. We don't even have confirmation of Meryl's participation in this, but if she were to join the cast, it would be in the role of Elinor Glyn, a British author and screenwriter. 

We're awaiting info on when we can expect filming to begin.
