It looks like Beyonce won’t be getting her swirl on with Russell Crowe in a remake of the classic film A Star Is Born, which would have seen her taking on the role played by the likes of Judy Garland and Barbara Streisand. Pop the hood.
Beyonce previously expressed interest in starring in the romance about an aging, alcoholic male musician who falls in love with a younger singer whose career is on the rise .Russell Crowe has confirmed that he’s still in talks to play the lead.
Crowe, who tasted rock star success as the frontman of Thirty Odd Foot Of Grunts, admits he’s still interested in making the movie – but doesn’t think Beyonce is.
He tells news show Extra, “I think she’s pulled out of it. I’m still chatting about it. It’s one of those stories that’s been made a lot, but I think it’s still quite a big focus – you can see that in terms of the popularity of things like American Idol.”
Wonder what made Beyonce pull the plug….
