Grammy award winning singer Beyonce is in negotiations with Oscar award winning director Clint Eastwood to remake the 4th version of âA Star Is Born,â according to Deadline.com.
There have been a trio of A Star Is Born versions made since the 1930s, the last one coming in 1976 with Beyonce’s idol Barbra Streisand. The well-worn film is story of a love affair between an alcoholic star on the way down, and a young female artist on the rise.
Set to produce are Billy Gerber, Basil Iwanyk and Jon Peters, spokeswoman Jessica Zacholl notes that the deals have not been finalized and negotiations are ongoing.
Mrs. Knowles-Carter is no stranger to musicals, having starred in 2006’s Dreamgirls and 2008’s Cadillac Records. No male lead is cast as yet.
