Clint Eastwood is set to direct Beyoncé Knowles in a new version of the musical A Star Is Born. According to Deadline, Eastwood will direct from a script by Will Fetters (Remember Me) and filming will begin this autumn in what will be the fourth incarnation of the film.
The latest version of this movie was shot in 1976 with Barbra Streisand as the main lead, a project which earned her a best original song Oscar. There are also rumors that point to Will Smith being targeted by Warner Brothers for a role in the movie as well.
Personally, I´m not very fond of remakes but if Eastwood is involved it might translate into a good movie in the end. What do you think?
