Famous for both her musical and her fashion style, Beyoncé is headed for the big screen again, having been cast in a remake of the classic film A Star is Born, which will be directed by Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood. The movie has been remade several times, with the most famous (for most people) being the 1976 version that starred Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. The producers of the 1976 remake, Jon Peters and Billy Gerber, are also involved with the new version, which will be a full-scale musical. Production will begin in fall 2011.
The original movie is about an aspiring singer who falls in love with an older, “fading star” who helps her get her big break. The latest celebrity gossip about possible male leads has been about Robert Downey Jr., Jon Hamm, and Will Smith.
