Have you heard? “A Star Is Born” is getting a remake!
Warner Bros. has confirmed that the musical film will be helmed by Academy Award-nominated actor Bradley Cooper. As the movie is about making a star, it’s only fitting to cast Lady Gaga, who is already a star on her own, to play the lead, don’t you think? ;)
The film, which will be penned by Will Fetters, marks Cooper’s directorial debut and it is also Mother Monster’s first starring role in a feature film. According to Deadline, the singer was the one Cooper wanted, after things didn’t work out with Beyoncé. Although Warner Bros. hasn’t set a release date yet, it was announced that the “Bad Romance” singer herself will compose and perform new music for the film. Productions for the musical film is expected to start early next year in California.
“A Star is Born” (1937) tells the story of an aspiring young starlet who arrives in Hollywood and is helped by an established celebrity. So far, the movie has 2 remakes released in 1954 and 1976 respectively.
