Lady Gaga is set to play the starlet to Bradley Cooper’s washed up manager in the remake of “A Star is Born” at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Cooper will not only star but make his directing debut on the film which originally had Beyonce co-starring until she had to bow out due to scheduling conflicts.
Gaga was high on the actor’s list from the start but was undecided when her name came up last month. Now though she’s reportedly on board and negotiations are currently underway.
Based on William Wellman’s 1937 film, the story centers on a fading movie star who helps a young aspiring actress while his own career spirals downward.
Cooper, Jon Peters, Billy Gerber and Basil Iwanyk will produce with filming aiming for a February start.
