Warner Bros. has officially confirmed to Deadline that a remake of the classic Hollywood movie " A Star is Born " is in production. The information we previously reported regarding the casting was also reinforced: the leading female role in the musical film will be performed by the singer Lady Gaga , and the director's chair will be taken by Bradley Cooper , who, in addition, has assigned himself central male role. Filming will begin early next year in California.|
Warner Bros. Director of Creative Development Greg Silverman commented on the appointment of Cooper as director of the film: “For those of us lucky enough to see his work in as an actor and producer, it was clear that Bradley would soon move on to directing as well. We are honored that he will be filming the film at the base of Warner Bros. and in collaboration with Lady Gaga . ”
For both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga , the upcoming project will be somewhat debut. Cooper has produced his own films and was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the military drama Sniper, but he has never directed himself before. Lady Gaga previously received only supporting roles in a big movie ("Machete Kills", "Sin City 2: A Woman Worth Killing For"). The singer does, however, have a Golden Globe for her performance in the American Horror Story miniseries, as well as a Academy Award nomination. in the Best Song category.
A remake of the classic film hit the studio's plans a few years ago. Initially, Clint Eastwood was supposed to modernize the classics along with Beyonce in the title role, but due to the pregnancy of the diva, the project stalled.
" A Star is Born " is a classic Hollywood story told to viewers three times already. In the center of her plot is a young girl who dreams of becoming an actress. She meets a famous and respected actor, whose fame is gradually beginning to fade. A romantic relationship is struck between them, and the man is trying with all his might to fulfill the cherished desire of his beloved, continuing to experience the decline of his own career.
Janet Gaynor played the role of a talented young lady in the original 1937 film, which won the " Oscar " for the best story, in the first remake of 1954 - Judy Garland, and in the rock version of 1976 in this role she performed Barbra Streisand. By the way, the last picture won the " Oscar " award in the "Best Song" nomination.
So, Lady Gaga will become the fourth actress who will try on such a textbook image. But her participation in the film will not end there: the shocking artist herself will write and perform songs in the film. The scriptwriters of the next star birth will be Cooper himself and Will Fetters, known for his work on the melodramas "The Best in Me" and "Lucky".
