Warner Bros. Pictures has given the official green light to the latest remake of “A Star Is Born” with shooting to begin early next year in California.
“The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper will both star in and make his directorial debut on the film alongside Lady Gaga in what will be her first studio starring role.
Gaga will play an ingenue singer whose star rises as quickly as her troubled lover/mentor (Cooper) is falling out of favor. She will also compose and perform new music for the film.
Cooper and Will Fetters penned the script while Cooper, Billy Gerber and Jon Peters are producing.
