"Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsLady Gaga is poised to make a major leap onto the big screen: The singer-actress is reportedly in talks to headline a remake of Hollywood classic "A Star Is Born."

Both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter confirm that Gaga is circling the high-profile project, in which she'd star opposite Bradley Cooper, who's also making his feature directorial debut on the film. Rumors of their possible collaboration on the flick surfaced earlier this year when Gaga and Cooper were seen riding Cooper's motorcycle together, prompting speculation that the singer was Cooper's choice to take on the titular starlet's role.

Now, it looks like studio Warner Bros. is also on board the Gaga train, with both Deadline and THR reporting that Gaga and Cooper recently tested for execs -- and, according to Deadline, "the studio loved the results." It seems it's only a matter of time before Gaga formally joins the flick.

"A Star Is Born" first hit the big screen in 1937 with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, who played a young aspiring actress on the road to fame and her alcoholic actor mentor, whose own once-stellar career is faltering. The drama was remade twice into musical versions: First in 1954, starring Judy Garland and James Mason, and again in 1976, starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. Beyonce was at one time attached to star in a contemporary remake for director Clint Eastwood, but both eventually left the project.

It's unclear if Cooper and Gaga's version of "A Star Is Born" will take after the straight drama or its musical adaptations, but either way, it seems Gaga -- like her soon-to-be-onscreen alter ego -- is also primed for great things in film: Earlier this year, she took home a Golden Globe for her role in "American Horror Story: Hotel," and was also nominated for an Oscar for co-writing the song "Til It Happens to You," from documentary "The Hunting Ground." Stay tuned for an official casting announcement.
