Clint Eastwood Will Direct Beyonce In A STAR IS BORN
In what will be the fourth version of A STAR IS BORN, Warner Bros has decided to pair Clint Eastwood with Beyonce. Eastwood, who has a shown a major interest in music on and off screen, will direct and produce the film which is written by Will Fetters.
Warner Bros has been toying with the idea of A Star Is Born for a while now, and the last that we’d heard, Nick Cassavetes was in talks to direct. A Star Is Born is the story of two musicians – one an alcoholic falling star, and the other a young female on the rise. The first version of the film was made in the 1930s, and most recently (1976) we saw Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand in the roles.
While there isn’t a male lead yet, Warner Bros had hoped to pair Beyonce with Will Smith; but the verdict is still out!
In addition to Eastwood, Billy Gerber, Basil Iwanyk, and Jon Peters will also produce. Warner Bros. is looking to begin shooting A Star Is Born in the fall.
