Beyonce And Bradley Cooper To Begin Filming ‘A Star Is Born’ In January 2017
Could this be the iconic role BeyBey has been waiting for? Earlier this week we told you she’s been working on her acting chops — but will this project be a flop?
According to Page Six reports:
Bradley Cooper is moving ahead with his planned directorial debut — a remake of the classic “A Star Is Born” — and Beyoncé is on board to star with him, sources tell Page Six.
But insiders added that although Cooper’s now meeting with producers in Hollywood to back the project, the film won’t be ready to go before cameras until the end of next year, or possibly January 2017.
“Beyoncé is a go,” said a source of Cooper’s remake of “A Star Is Born,” which originated in 1937, was remade in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason, and again in 1976 with Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand. Our source added Cooper’s still seeking the rest of the cast. “He’s out to find the rest of the cast, but he may take another acting role [in the meantime]. He’s furiously making everything he can.”
Beyoncé’s reportedly been taking acting lessons and looking for “an iconic dramatic role.” She was originally said to be interested in the “A Star Is Born” remake when it was to be helmed by Cooper’s “American Sniper” director Clint Eastwood, who then dropped out.
The reports are also saying Cooper is trying to fit in another part before filming starts because he’s so upset about his last two films ‘Burnt’ and ‘Aloha,’being flops. This sounds like it could be a big gamble for both of them.
