Since Hollywood couldn’t possibly just come up with an original script anymore, they’re remaking A Star Is Born…again.
Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand have already tackled the role of Esther, and now they’re giving Beyonce a shot.
I’d say this has disaster written all over it, but then I learned Clint Eastwood is directing it. Side note—didn’t he claim he was retiring after Gran Torino?
The storyline, if you’re unfamiliar with the original(s), is about a young ingénue who becomes romantically involved with an aging has-been. While her career takes off, his fades. The modern version will feature Beyonce as the young singer who falls for an older rock star.
Word on the street is that Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas and Judi Dench are all attached to the film as well. I’ll bite my tongue for now since that is a badass cast. But I’m not in favor of remaking this classic!
Beyonce better bring it!
