I remember hearing about a remake of A Star is born back when Beyonce was supposed to have played the lead opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Clint Eastwood. Bey soon revealed she was pregnant with Blue Ivy and dropped out of the project and the whole thing was scrapped. There was also a project before that even that Jennifer Lopez was supposed to star as the “Star” in, but it fizzled out as well.
Now Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are taking a shot. Looks like these two were the duo that finally saw through to retell the story. Over 40 years have passed since the original came out. Many probably haven’t even watched the original. Will they be tempted to head to the movie theatre for Lady Gaga and Cooper?
One never knows, but the trailer looks promising.
The only thing I take issue with is the part where she say’s that almost everyone she ever met liked the way she sounded, but didn’t like the way she looked. Really?
Are we living in a world where somehow Lady Gaga would be considered not pretty enough to be successful in the music industry. Lord help us if that’s true.
Are you planning to see A Star is Born? Did you see the original with Streisand and Kris Kristofferson? Let me know in the comments.
