Beyonce to Star in A Star Is Born Remake?

Beyonce has already proved she’s not only a great singer, but a fantastic actress as well. And now she’s reportedly being considered for the lead role in the remake A Star is Born.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers has hired up-and-coming screenwriter Will Fetters to do a draft on the script based on the 1970s flick.

The original starred Barbra Streisand as Esther Hoffman, a rising starlet who becomes romantically involved with a well-known male star. He shows Esther the way to stardom while forsaking his own career. As they fall in love, her success only makes his decline even more apparent.

THR says that Beyonce’s name has “surfaced in connection with the lead role” but she is “not officially involved at this point.”

We love this story, and Beyonce would be great in this role!
