We told you back in August of 2016 that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper officially signed on to star in the remake of A Star is Born. It was pretty big news at the time because the project had went down such a difficult road. At one point, Leonardo DiCaprio was set to co-star in the film with Beyonce, and Clint Eastwood was in talks to direct.
That obviously didn’t work out, and just when the studio was about to scratch the idea, Bradley Cooper came in to say he would star and direct the movie.
Following his announcement, Lady Gaga joined the cast and now filming has officially started. Warner Bros. released the first photo from set, which shows Cooper playing the guitar next to Gaga.
According to multiple reports, Cooper and Gaga have been at Coachella filming scenes for the movie. It’s going to be interesting to see the finished product. As you may already know, this will be Cooper’s directorial debut.
Most actors who dip their toes in the directing waters start off with indie projects. Cooper is going straight to the top with his debut. Andrew Dice Clay and Sam Elliott are set to co-star in the movie.
We’ll keep you posted as more information is released. It’s set to hit theaters in 2018.
