I reported this news some months ago, but today all the net is a buzz with news of the singer backing out of the project because of a rumored pregnancy.
The real deal however is a bit more complicated. Originally the film was in constant limbo because of producers inability to find a suitable male lead.
However, my source, the same one who told me the film would never be made with Beyonce in the lead, says Clint Eastwood put the brakes on the film not to find a suitable male lead, but rather to find a replacement for Beyonce who Clint is apparently none too anxious to work with.
This version of the story is basically backed up by Eastwood who recently told E! News that Bradley Cooper is being considered for the lead male role and that it is now Beyonce’s participation in the film that is in question.
When asked about the Queen Bey, Clint said: “She’s great. I don’t know is she’s available, but we’ve talked a bit.”
Really, Clint? Wasn’t Beyonce attached to this film before anyone… including you?
Crazy old white man or not, Clint has mucho pull in Hollywood and if he wanted Beyonce out it was as good as done.
Word is the lead female role will now be played by an empty chair wearing a blonde wig.
