Beyoncé’s Salary Request Effectively Put A Halt On “A Star Is Born” Remake
Late last year, we reported that Beyoncé would be making her way back to the silver screen via the Bradley Cooper directed “A Star Is Born” remake.
Welp, according to PageSix, Mrs. Carter will no longer be starring in the film. In fact, the film is not being made at all…
Bradley Cooper’s planned directing debut, a remake of “A Star Is Born,” has fallen through after his rumored co-star Beyoncé wanted too much money for the role.
Warner Bros. was negotiating with “American Sniper” star Cooper to direct and star in the remake of the 1950s Judy Garland musical. Beyoncé was being lined up to play the lead, a young woman whose dreams of stardom are helped by an aging icon.
But one Hollywood source tells Page Six, “Beyoncé wanted too much money, and Warner Bros. balked at her price. The production budget was also said to be an issue with the studio, so the project has fallen apart.”
Beyoncé wasn’t gonna do this movie for pennies, but it’s not like she’s some amazing Oscar-winning bankable actress.
Guess she didn’t want to be a team player…
