According to the Hollywood Reporter, those rumors of Beyonce starring in the remake of the classic “A Star Is Born” may not be rumors after all. Despite reports of the singer turning the role down, it now appears with Clint Eastwood on board, Beyonce may indeed be joining the cast. Eastwood has attached himself to the project as producer and director and reports say the script is specifically being written as the next starring vehicle for the “Queen B.”
It appears the only thing holding up production is the search for a male lead. To date Robert Downey Jr, Will Smith and even Justin Timberlake have had their names thrown into mix. However, none have panned out and so the search continues.
Should the film ever come to fruition, it will be the 4th remake, with the original making its debut in the 1930s. It was remade again during the 1950s with Judy Garland and finally with Barbara Streisand in the 1970s.
