Eastwood, Beyonce Remaking A STAR IS BORN

Warner has been floating the idea around for some time now with such luminaries as Will Smith, Beyonce, and Nick Cassavetes once attached to the project, but now Deadline says in an exclusive report that Eastwood will direct Beyonce from a script by Will Peters.

There have been several A Star is Born versions and knock-offs throughout the years, including the memorable 1976 rendition with Kris Kristofferson in the role of the alcoholic rock star on the way down, and Barbra Streisand as the up-and-coming singer.

No male lead has yet been cast for Eastwood's version, but the crew is looking to begin filming later in the fall of this year.

Stay tuned as more details are sure to roll in.
