The idea of a remake of A Star is Born has been tossed around for the last four years, starting with a version directed by Clint Eastwood starring Beyonce and possibly Will Smith. Ever since then the rumor has resurfaced every so often. The one constant is Beyonce, who apparently REALLY wants to play an ingenue one more time in her career.
It looks like the film is once again well on the way to being made, this time with Bradley Cooper directing and possibly starring but still with Beyonce in the Janet Gaynor/Judy Garland/Barbara Streisand role. This sounds like the soundtrack could be incredible. I am not certain about acting-wise, but that Vanity Fair write up of the saga of the remake of A Star is Born is also pretty great so at least we have that.
