Universal Pictures announced Tuesday that the “La La Land” duo would be reuniting after their awards season success to make another run at it for the 2018 circuit, the Associated Press reports.

“First Man” will focus on Armstrong through the years of 1961-1969 and detail NASA’s race to land the first man on the moon. The movie will be based on James R. Hansen’s book titled “First Man: The Life of Neil Armstrong” with a script written by Josh Singer of “Spotlight.”

Chazelle recently became the youngest person ever to win the Academy Award for best director at the age of 32. “La La Land” was awarded with six Oscars, seven Golden Globes and has made nearly $400 million globally, according to the Associated Press.
