To me, Clint Eastwood is a god. Almost every movie that he has directed turns into box office or critical gold (minus Invictus, which I thought was a total bust). And now he has signed on to remake A Star is Born, with Beyonce as the lead!
Clint is a great director for this project, considering he is extremely music-oriented. He planned to major in music theory during his college years, and ended up scoring most of his recent films, including Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Changeling.
For all of you non-film-buffs out there, A Star is Born was originally made in 1937 and revolves around an up and coming singer/actress. It has been remade twice, once starring Judy Garland and once starring Barbra Streisand. Beyonce, pictured at a Lorraine Schwartz jewelry collection launch in November, is set to star in the latest remake, although her leading man has not been cast. Will Smith is rumored to be the front runner, although P Diddy, Eddie Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., and Jon Hamm’s names have all been floating around. Who would you like to see acting opposite Beyonce?
