Bradley Cooper Is in Talks to Direct ‘A Star Is Born’


Bradley Cooper is in talks to take over the remake of A Star Is Born, which pal Clint Eastwood has been trying to get off the ground for almost four years.

A Star Is Born will be the remake of a 1937 movie musical of the same name, which featured Janet Gaynor and Fredric March.

The project, in which Eastwood was hoping to cast Beyonce as his leading lady, will mark the American Sniper star’s directorial debut should he sign on.

Eastwood was all set to start shooting the film when Beyonce fell pregnant and the director turned his attention to another movie musical, Jersey Boys.

Asked about the state of A Star is Born during a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Eastwood said, “I talked about that (movie) for a while with Warner Brothers’ people and we’re still playing with that idea. But the problem at the beginning (was) they were more infatuated with just the idea of the casting.

“They were talking about having Beyonce in it, and she was very popular, but she also is very active and it’s hard to get a time scheduled, so we never could get that worked out. But I’m still playing with the idea.”
