It’s been a long road for this A Star Is Born project. A road so long that you begin to question your sanity. Will it ever end? Is it all a dream? Why are there no other cars on the road?
Warner Bros. remake of the classic film has been on life support for what feels like years now. At one point, Leonardo DiCaprio and Beyonce were set to star and Clint Eastwood was attached as the director. Unfortunately, that strange combination didn’t work out, and the project was left for dead.
Bradley Cooper entered the room to save the day though. After both Eastwood and Beyonce dropped out, Cooper announced he would both star and direct the remake. That’s when Lady Gaga joined the project, and now Warner Bros. has finally decided to move forward. It will be Cooper’s directorial debut.
This will be a challenge for both Cooper and Lady Gaga. Starring in your directorial debut sounds super stressful, and Gaga faces the challenge of trying to match the performances by Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. It’s not going to be easy.
The 30-year-old singer/actress went on her Twitter account to let her fans know how excited she is…
Filming is scheduled to begin in California next year. According to the reports, Lady Gaga will be composing and writing new songs to perform.
Warner Brothers president of Creative Development and WW Production Greg Silverman made it clear that everyone is excited to watch this project develop…
“For those of us lucky enough to watch him work as an actor and producer, it has been clear that Bradley would make this transition to director. We are honored that he is doing it, here, at his home—Warner Bros.—and with Lady Gaga as a collaborator and co-star. The world is in for a treat as these great artists craft an all new vision of A Star is Born.”
