Los Angeles: "Whiplash" director Damien Chazelle, who has already announced a full-fledged musical titled "La La Land", finds a lack of original scripts of the genre in Hollywood.

"Musicals are only adaptations these days. There are hardly any originals. 'Whiplash' has helped take off 'La La Land', something I wrote even before I worked on 'Whiplash'," Chazelle said in a statement.

"By all means for now this is my dream project. Of course I'm certain I will write many more dream projects in the future," he added.

"Whiplash" features a stellar combination of actors like J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller.
