Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are finally working on a movie together. They will be doing a remake of the classic musical, A Star Is Born. Lady Gaga will not just star in the film. She will also compose new music for the highly anticipated project. For Cooper, on other hand, this is going to be his directorial debut.
A Star Is Born is also a great milestone for Lady Gaga?s career. For the first time, she is tasked to do a major role in a feature film. The singer/actress had obtained several acting recognitions through the years. Some of her movies in which she was recognized are Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Machete Kills and American Horror Story. AHS led her to win a Golden Globe.
The lead role for the remake of A Star Is Born was originally given to Beyonc?. However, when Beyonc? learned that she is pregnant, she turned down the project.
Cooper signed a deal with Warner Bros. in 2015 to direct the remake. He initially tried to convince Beyonc? to do it. But, as mentioned, the pop star did not accept the deal. So Cooper set his sight on Lady Gaga. The latter was also able to impress Warner Bros. executives with a screen test alongside the actor.
Aside from his duties as the director of A Star Is Born remake, Cooper is also busy with writing the script with Will Fetters.
The remake of A Star Is Born that Lady Gaga and Cooper are doing will be the fourth since the movie was first seen in 1937. It follows the story of a failing performer who helps an aspiring star realise her dreams.
The 1937 original was in the direction of David O. Selznick. It starred Janet Gaynor and Fredric March. Judy Garland and James Mason, on the other hand, took the lead roles in the 1954 version. Finally, Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson appeared in the 1976 version of the film.
No official released date has been announced yet for the remake of A Star Is Born. Tune in to TheBitBag for more updates.
