Not Only Will Lady Gaga Star But She Will Compose The Score As Well As Perform
Marking the directorial debut of Bradley Cooper, ‘A Star Is Born‘ has officially been announced. The leading lady to fill in for Barbra Streisand? None other than pop & jazz singer Lady Gaga! Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Warner Bros. Pictures announced the project early on Tuesday, June 16th.
‘A Star is Born‘ is being produced by Billy Gerber and Jon Peters along with together with Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips. Basil Iwanyk is serving as executive producer.
This will be the first time Bradley Cooper will step into the directors chair and the first time Lady Gaga will star in a feature film. The singer will also compose brand-new songs for the film as well.
“For those of us lucky enough to watch him work as an actor and producer, it has been clear that Bradley would make this transition to director. We are honored that he is doing it, here, at his home—Warner Bros.—and with Lady Gaga as a collaborator and co-star. The world is in for a treat as these great artists craft an all new vision of ‘A Star is Born.’”
While it’s sad that Gaga won’t be remaking “Evergreen” by Barbra Streisand, this is still a huge moment for the singer/actress. This was the film that helped Streisand land another Oscar so maybe this could be the Lady’s time.
