As a famous superstar herself, Beyonce Knowles will be starring in the upcoming remake of “A Star is Born.” According to Deadline, the film will be directed and produced by Clint Eastwood, an Oscar winner himself.
After false rumors about Beyonce being pregnant, it is clear the star is ready to shine on the silver screen again. In 2006, Beyonce played a superstar singer role in the film, “Dreamgirls.” Beyonce will once again play a star singer in “A Star is Born.”
PopEater reports no male lead has been chosen for the remake yet. Names being thrown around in rumor include Will Smith, Jon Hamm, Eddie Murphy, Diddy and Robert Downey, Jr. While all sound like contenders, the male lead has not been announced.
The latest remake will be the fourth Hollywood version of the story “A Star is Born.” The most recent version of the movie starred Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. In 1954, the film starred Judy Garland and James Mason. The first version in 1937 starred Janet Gaynor and Frederic March.
The 2012 remake of “A Star is Born” with Beyonce will begin production in the fall.
