Pop star Beyoncé has confirmed she’ll lead the cast in Clint Eastwood‘s ‘A STAR IS BORN‘ remake!


The Crazy In Love hitmaker, who previously starred in ‘DREAMGIRLS‘ and ‘AUSTIN POWERS: GOLD MEMBER‘, has long been linked to the leading lady role and now she has ended months of speculation by revealing she’ll follow in the footsteps of Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand for a fourth remake of the classic movie.

Making the announcement during her summer concert series performance on Good Morning America on Friday (1st July 2011), she says:

“Clint Eastwood? Can you believe that? I can’t believe it still. When I met with him I was just in awe. I’m so, so honoured that he believes in me. And I can’t wait to do this film.

“I represent this generation’s talent and for me to be the chosen person, as an African-American woman, is incredible.”


Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio are both reportedly in talks to co-star. Eastwood is producing through as well as helming the script by Will Fetters. Producing partners include Billy Gerber, Basil Iwanyk and Jon Peters (who was behind the infamous version with Streisand and Kris Kristofferson).
