Beyoncé and Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in Clint Eastwood's A Star is Born
We previously reported that Clint Eastwood and Beyoncé Knowles were in talks to work together on the third remake of A Star Is Born. All of the hype has officially been confirmed.
According to NME, Clint Eastwood has selected Beyoncé Knowles and Leonardo DiCaprio to play lead roles in the upcoming film. DiCaprio will play an aging rock star opposite an aspiring singer, played by Beyoncé. Knowles is following in the footsteps of famed actresses Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand, who both have played the iconic role before her.
The musician-turned-actress reportedly told Good Morning America she was very excited about the role.
“Clint Eastwood? Can you believe that,” Knowles said. “I can’t believe it still. When I met with him I was just in awe. I’m so, so honored that he believes in me. And I can’t wait to do this film.”
The movie is set to hit theaters next year.
