Beyonce Joins Bradley Cooper in 'A Star is Born' - Report

Beyonce may have a new movie role in the works.

The 34-year-old entertainer is set to star in the remake of A Star is Born, according to Page Six.

This would mark Bradley Cooper‘s directorial debut, which wouldn’t begin filming until late 2016 or early 2017.

Beyonce is a go,” a source told the paper, adding that Bradley‘s “out to find the rest of the cast, but he may take another acting role [in the meantime]. He’s furiously making everything he can.”

In case you’re unfamiliar, A Star Is Born was first made in 1937 and 1954 and then again in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

It follows the love story of a film star helping a young singer and actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career on a downward spiral.

WOULD YOU WANT to see Beyonce star in the new remake?

    Come on, how many times are they going to remake this movie. Get some new ideas. smh

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Another stupid remake. Also, Beyonce is too old for this role by at least 12 years.

  • Jenny from the flop

    No fucking thank you! Why doesn’t it surprise me that this monkey wants to star in a movie like this? “Omg Jay I’m a star too, so I should be in this” bitch bye

  • Bumble

    Vanity project for both.

  • seawausa

    Beyonce? No thank you.

  • Francesca Simoni

    Lady Gaga would be better, she’s got that old Hollywood vibe in her . plus Beyonce is old for this charachter.

  • The Ridley

    There have been many singers turned actors…. Some of them actually have talent. Beyonce (or BeyBey…whatever media calls her) would do probably ANYTHING to get the part. JayZ (or whatever the media calls him) would let her do anything for the part. She wants an oscar. Since she thinks she was robbed in that movie Dreamgirls.
    Too many reboots going on these days. As for this singer/actor being too old for the part as some have stated. I remember Barbara Striesand and her role in that movie. She was maybe older than Beyonce in that role.
    Hell Oprah would spend a 100m to buy her oscar.
    My point is this. Stick to what works for you. I don’t think trying to buy your oscar will work. Too many others with better talents out there.

  • Francesca Simoni

    I was referring to the version whith Judy Garland, she was young, I didn’t think it was believable the version with Barbra Straisand.

  • Ause Ekel

    This film will bomb like all films Cooper did in 2015.

  • Mimilarue82

    Beyonce is not a great actress..

  • TeaCakes

    She can sing, though. I believe she can sing anything well.

  • Ditzzzy

    Please Hollywood find new ideas and stop doing remakes

  • Conte435

    A first for Hollywood, the women for the part should be in their early 20′s, it’s going to someone who’s almost 40.

    Bradley Cooper is making a mistake instead of casting talent he is going for a name.

    Beyonce can’t act and doesn’t have Whitney Houston’s amazing voice to compensate for her wooden acting.

  • Taylor

    👏👏👏 well said!!! She’s a terrible ‘actress’, classes or not

  • shoes4life

    It will be his first major flop. Instead of getting that she goat sounding Beyonce, he could at least ask for singer with some range like Christina Aguilera. Hell she might can’t act very well but at least she can make up for it with her singing. Bad choice Brad, bad remake and lead choice.

  • shoes4life

    All the money these idiots make and their either too lazy or dumb to come up with an original idea. There is plenty of room and need for new and tasteful classics.

  • shoes4life

    Or that great of a singer. Performer okay, singer, ehh.

  • DeeDee00

    This is going to be the 4th version of this film. I’ve seen all them wasn’t impressed by one of them. This one will be no different with him as a director/actor & her as actress with the southern drawl….UUGHHHH

  • VanityInsecurity

    From Barbra Streisand to Beyonce? At least give it to someone who can really hold a note & that can more importantly ACT!

  • ForRealz

    Way to go, BRADFORD! :)

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Huge mistake….Huge.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Beyonce has been taking acting lessons which i find truly laughable.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    ..so is Gaga.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    That’s why he’s so desperate now.

  • Charade

    Remakes… ugh

  • I am Evelyn Salt

    Well, if she is taking acting classes lets hope she’s also taking speech classes. Her diction is awful. She slurs all her words. Mush mouth.

  • kipty

    Neato!

  • Mr0011011 .

    She has a great voice…

  • Mr0011011 .

    Monkey?

  • Naomi

    Almost 40? Beyonce is 34 and looks incredibly young with no makeup, plus she’s an incredible singer.

  • Naomi

    If you like shrieking and warbling.

  • bronxboi

    Ok, I may get major heat from this statement but when she enunciates her words, she sounds like an illiterate project girl.

  • Ditzzzy

    Couldn’t agree more. They keep recycling things from the past. If they took more chances and let new people in, we’d have more ground breaking material to look at.

  • ForRealz

    American Sniper took over the world in 2015 and so did his play. Just saying.

  • Ause Ekel

    I’m not considering a film released in December 2014. American Sniper is a 2014 film which got Oscar buzz and more theaters from January on. In 2015, Cooper had Serena, that one with Stone I forgot and now Burnt, all bombs. He started the year with an Oscar nod and then had three huge flops in a row. Not very good.

  • Mr0011011 .

    No, like she has an actual great voice by any objective standard, which you clearly are not. Can’t expect much from a global warming denialist bigot though.

  • Mr0011011 .

    Well I respectfully disagree. She isn’t Ariana Grande, who I can never understand despite her obvious ability to sing.

  • sabelmouse

    hilarious! what naomi said. also

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByLJstEo0fo

  • sabelmouse

    how old is the character? b is 34 and looks younger.

  • sabelmouse

    racist!

  • sabelmouse

    racist!

  • bronxboi

    I am not taking about her singing, I am talking about how she sounds when she says her words in “normal” conversation. She speaks poorly.

  • Arx

    Lady Gaga looks older than Beyonce tho. I don’t think either should be in this film.

  • Mr0011011 .

    Haha, if you say so.

  • VanityInsecurity

    you & Naomi, perhaps you should re-read what I wrote. Beyonce can’t hold a note comparing to Streisand. …what do I expect really from Beyonce fans..

  • sabelmouse

    no you didn’t. you implied that beyonce couldn’t hold a note as opposed to streisand.
    do you mean lenght of note? streisand is quite extraordinary there but that doesn’t mean beyonce can’t hold a note.
    they do of course have very different singing styles.
    as a long term streisand fan i have no issues with this.
    as for acting; beyonce is no worse than many. she’s a singer after all.
    of course someone [relatively unknown] from musical theater would really be the thing.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Thank you

  • sabelmouse

    maybe she’s not trying to sound white? maybe she’s rejecting that?
    when i grew up we were punished for speaking dialect in school. i learned to hide who i am and where i’m from. i learned to speak like a middle/upper class person.
    i gave THEM power while deceiving them.
