After a successful chemistry test for Warner Bros, the studio has green lit a remake of 'A Star Is Born' with Bradley Cooper directing and starring opposite Grammy-winning recording star Lady GaGa, who will also write and perform new music for the film.
The studio tried, but was unsuccessful in courting Beyonce for the role of a singer whose star rises as quickly as her troubled lover's star is on the decline, and quickly moved on to GaGa at the suggestion of Cooper. Now, deals have been closed by Warner Bros president of Creative Development and WW Production Greg Silverman with production set to start in early 2017.
"For those of us lucky enough to watch him work as an actor and producer, it has been clear that Bradley would make this transition to director," Silverman said. "We are honored that he is doing it, here, at his home—Warner Bros.—and with Lady Gaga as a collaborator and co-star. The world is in for a treat as these great artists craft an all new vision of A Star is Born." Exciting!!!
