The remake of the classic 1954 film ‘A Star Is Born’ has been in the works for the past few years. Originally Beyoncé was rumored to get the starring role, but of course that didn’t go through.
Now it looks like the film is happening this time around.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros has green-lit the film, with production expected to start in California early next year. Gaga will star in the film alongside Bradley Cooper, who will also be making his directorial debut.
Lady Gaga has been killing it on the FX hit show ‘American Horror Story,’ which won her a Golden Globe. Now the pop diva is ready to boost her acting career with her first studio-starring role.
She will also write and perform new music for the film.
Cooper has been eyeing this project for his debut as a director since he was working with Warner Bros and Clint Eastwood on his film, ‘American Sniper.’
Warner Bros President of Creative Development, Greg Silverman said, “For those of us lucky enough to watch him work as an actor and producer, it has been clear that Bradley would make this transition to director.”
He continued, “We are honored that he is doing it, here, at his home—Warner Bros.—and with Lady Gaga as a collaborator and co-star. The world is in for a treat as these great artists craft an all new vision of A Star is Born.”
Congratulations to both Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper.
