Dave Chappelle Joins “Star Is Born” Remake

Dave Chappelle will join Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the remake of “A Star is Born” at Warner Bros. Pictures and 22 & Green.

The story gives a fresh look at the story about a singer whose star rises as quickly as her troubled lover/mentor’s star is falling. Chappelle will play Cooper’s oldest friend, who used to perform with him at blues clubs. Andrew Dice Clay and Sam Elliott also star.

Eric Roth (“Munich”) penned the latest draft, earlier versions were done by Cooper and Will Fetters. Cooper is also directing the project and will produce alongside Jon Peters, Bill Gerber, and Basil Iwanyk. The film opens September 28th 2018.
