Lady Gaga is featuring in her first leading role in a movie- and it smells like an Oscar may just happen for her.
She plays the role of a song writer with a powerful voice but low self-esteem, until she discovered by one of the most successful male artist played by Bradley cooper.
What follows can be seen in the trailer — an intimate relationship, success and all the troubles that come with both. As she blooms into a mega star, he starts to fade.
Beyoncé was originally supposed to play the lead role. She was approached in 2012 but she was she was pregnant with blue Ivy and years later would focus on her child
She was approached again in 2016 but was said to have been too expensive for the project being helmed by Bradley Cooper in his directorial debut. A source told the New York Post’s Page Six: ‘Beyoncé wanted too much money, and Warner Bros. balked at her price. ‘The production budget was also said to be an issue with the studio, so the project has fallen apart.’
Finally the remake is happening with Lady Gaga playing the lead role and I just get all the chills watching the trailer- Beyoncé may have just missed out on an Oscar moment
A star is born was first released in 1937, then remade in 1954 and 1976 . Aashiqui 2 the Indian version was made in 2013. And now this again.
I am excited to see this movie, but I think going forward, it’s time to put this storyline to rest.
