Beyoncé to Star in ‘A Star Is Born’ Remake Alongside Bradley Cooper

Bradley-Cooper-BeyonceRemember the other day when we told you that Beyoncé is taking acting classes and looking for ‘an iconic dramatic role?’

Well, according to new reports she’s getting ready to star in the ‘A Star Is Born’ remake that’s been trying to happen for years. This time, instead of Clint Eastwood directing it’ll be Bradley Cooper.

via Page Six:

But insiders added that although Cooper’s now meeting with producers in Hollywood to back the project, the film won’t be ready to go before cameras until the end of next year, or possibly January 2017.

As a result, Cooper is now trying to squeeze in an acting role before going into preproduction on “A Star Is Born,” but sources said he needs to find the right script that will let him “disappear” into a part and shake off two bombs — chef drama “Burnt” and Cameron Crowe’s “Aloha.”

“Beyoncé is a go,” said a source of Cooper’s remake of “A Star Is Born,” which originated in 1937, was remade in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason, and again in 1976 with Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand. Our source added Cooper’s still seeking the rest of the cast. “He’s out to find the rest of the cast, but he may take another acting role [in the meantime]. He’s furiously making everything he can.”

Beyoncé’s reportedly been taking acting lessons and looking for “an iconic dramatic role.” She was originally said to be interested in the “A Star Is Born” remake when it was to be helmed by Cooper’s “American Sniper” director Clint Eastwood, who then dropped out.

After “American Sniper” raked in more than $350 million at the box office, Cooper impressed critics on Broadway in “The Elephant Man,” then landed in two underperfoming movies. Also, his role in “Joy” was just snubbed by the Golden Globes.

“He is looking to really disappear into his next role,” said a Hollywood source. “That’s where Bradley’s best — in ‘American Sniper,’ ‘American Hustle,’ ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’” Either way, one lined-up role he’ll really disappear into is as CGI character Rocket Raccoon in “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2,” which won’t hit theaters until May 2017. He’s also been rumored to direct another movie starring Robert De Niro, “Honeymoon With Harry.” Reps didn’t get back to us.

It seems that Jada Pinkett Smith will likely be joining Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and Tracee Ellis Ross on ABC sometime next year or in 2017.

Following her one-year stint on FOX’s Gotham, Jada has landed the lead role in the ABC drama pilot Murder Town.

Per Deadline:

“Murder Town” centers on a beautiful and complicated prosecutor (Pinkett Smith) who makes history as Wilmington, Delaware’s, first African American District Attorney. She finds herself confronted by old loyalties and loves, a shocking revelation about her murdered husband and a polarizing, racially-charged case that threatens to burn her and her city to the ground.

Wow! Murder Town sounds juicy! Let’s hope that ABC picks it up to series.

Along with starring in Murder Town, Jada will also executive produce the project.
