Bradley Cooper in Talks to Direct 'A Star is Born'
Bradley Cooper is reportedly in serious talks with Warner Bros. to make his directorial debut with a remake of "A Star is Born." His "American Sniper" boss Clint Eastwood was previously attached to direct with none other than pop superstar Beyoncé lined up as the female lead, but that fell through a few years ago. Will Warner Bros. be able to convince Queen Bey to give it another shot?
The original musical was a glossy David O. Selznick production from 1937, starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March as an aspiring actress and her aging paramour. It was first remade in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason, and then remade/rebooted in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson as rockers instead of actors.
Whether or not Cooper will also star is up in the air, as is whether or not WB will approach Beyoncé for the role once again. It would be fabulous to see her in such a legendary role, but she's a busy Bey.
