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?
