Lady Gaga will officially star in the upcoming remake of the musical A Star is Born alongside Bradley Cooper, who is set to make his directorial debut with the film.
The movie will start production next year in California and Gaga will compose and perform new music for the soundtrack.
“For those of us lucky enough to watch him work as an actor and producer, it has been clear that Bradley would make this transition to director,” Warner Bros. president of creative development and worldwide production, Greg Silverman, told Deadline in a statement. “We are honored that he is doing it, here, at his home—Warner Bros.—and with Lady Gaga as a collaborator and co-star. The world is in for a treat as these great artists craft an all new vision of A Star is Born.”
Beyonce was originally in talks to star in the film several years ago.
