Lady Gaga is slated to star opposite Bradley Cooper in the long rumored remake of the classic movie musical A Star Is Born. The pop star confirmed the news on her Twitter account.
Reports of a potential remake of the movie have been floating around Hollywood for the past few years. While Cooper was always mentioned as the director and co-star for the project, which will mark his film directorial debut, the actress rumored to be starring opposite him was another A-list pop star, Beyoncé.
Things apparently heated up this spring when Lady Gaga’s name was newly attached to A Star Is Born, and a reported screen test with Cooper apparently wowed the bigwigs at Warner Bros., which is producing the film. Now, Lady Gaga herself has confirmed the news that she will indeed be performing the title role in the flick.
Im elated to be directed by & starring w/ Bradley in this project. He's a brilliant visionary artist. #AStarIsBorn #AStarIsBornCooperGaga
