“Beyoncé is a go,” said the source of Cooper’s remake of A Star Is Born, which originated in 1937, was remade in 1954 and again in 1976.
A Star Is Born narrates a story of how a young aspiring actor and singer finds love in an another actor, only to fall prey to alcoholism and ambition.
The source added that Cooper is still casting the other parts. “He’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,” the source said.
It’s likely that the American Sniper star will do another acting role before going into production on his remake, which will be ready by end of next year or 2017.
