There have been ongoing rumors that Beyonce will take on the main role in Bradley Cooper’s remake of the classic, A Star is Born, but we are now learning that there are other plans.

While we would love to see the bootylicious singer play the role of what was once taken on by Janet Gaynor in 1937, Judy Garland in 1954 and Barbara Streisand in 1976, Cooper claims it is just a “rumor.”

Bradley, who has been tapped to star and direct the remake, confirmed to E! News’ Marc Malkin that while the reports are untrue, “I would be honored obviously with to work with her in any capacity.”

According to Deadline, A Star is Born remake has been a longtime dream for Warner Brothers, who first made the film back in 1954. Apparently, there have been leading names circling the project for years, including Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale.

Deadline also reported back in March “Beyonce has been most often mentioned for that female lead.” But now that we know the multi Grammy Award winner will not be hitting the big screen alongside Cooper, who will play the role?

We also wonder: Would WB ever have put Will Smith and Beyonce together in the film?


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
