Lady Gaga Could Star in Bradley Cooper's A STAR IS BORN
A remake of the 1937 film A Star is Born has been in development since 2011. Clint Eastwood and Beyonce were originally attached to the project. Over the years it has obviously gone through several changes.
Bradley Cooper is now set to direct and star in the film, and according to THR, Lady Gaga is in talks to take on the lead role. If she lands the part this will be her first starring role in a feature film.
The film has already been remade twice — in 1954 and in 1976. The story "centers on a movie star who helps an aspiring young actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral."
Gaga has emerged as a very talented actress who really impressed in American Horror Story: Hotel. She's also previously appeared in films such as Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Machete Kills, and Muppets Most Wanted. Those were smaller type roles, though.
According to the report, Gaga auditioned for the Warner Bros. film and impressed the executives. This seems like a perfect project for the actress so it would be cool if she actually landed the role. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
