Warner Bros. has snagged â€śThe Manâ€ť for their new remake of ‘A Star is Born.’ Clint Eastwood will direct the 4th remake of this movie, and producers are hoping to lock in Beyonce as the female lead. Get the full story below!
Last made in 1976, the movie then starred Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson playing a young starlet who falls in love with an aging legend. The previous versions were filmed in 1954 and 1937.
With Beyonce waiting in the wings and Clint Eastwood locked in to direct the remake of ‘A Star is Born,’ all Warner Bros. needs now is a male lead and the choices are aplenty. Originally, the film makers were said to be after Will Smith to fill the role, but now names ranging from Robert Downey Jr. to Jon Hamm have been thrown in the mix.
Also in question is the storyline of the new remake. Obviously the plot is under wraps for now, but at least we can rest assured that Eastwood will put out another quality product. Given that he studied music in college and has written scores for his most recent movies, you can be certain that the gritty actor has the talent to film a musical.
Meanwhile, the ‘Dirty Harry’ actor will turn his attention to his current work in progress, ‘J Edgar.’ The move will star Leonardo DiCaprio as FBI founder J. Edgar Hoover and feature Josh Lucas and Judy Dench.
