Lady Gaga To Join Bradley Cooper's 'A Star Is Born' Remake

Recommended Posts

Lady Gaga might star in Bradley Cooper's directorial debut, a remake of 1937 film A Star Is Born. The Golden Globe-winning actress is in talks for the female lead opposite Cooper, a new report reveals. According to Deadline, the stars "tested and the studio loved the results." Negotiations are expected to happen shortly with production of the movie set for early 2017.

Warner Bros. has been working on the project for over five years. Clint Eastwood was originally set to direct the movie with singer Beyoncé headlinging it, but they both dropped out of the project. Due to that, the project was stalled until Cooper picked it up. Rumors that Gaga would be replacing Beyoncé as the female lead surfaced last month when the singer was caught by paparazzi on a motorcycle ride to a restaurant with Bradley.

I'm not sure how I feel about Bradley as a director given he hasn't really done anything before tbh. It seems like a pretty big movie to debut with. But if he's starring alongside Gaga I think that could work really well! I see an OSCAR in her future. :magic:

A Star Is Born has been so great to me. Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, now Gaga? How great is that? :'( 
I'm hoping they stick more to the original era of the movie instead of modernizing it :/

Don't act like you know who Janet Gaynor is you flop. :morning: 

But idk, I'm kind of expecting them to modernise it tbh. That's what they've done with each movie so far so I think it would work well with the past versions, even though I would like to see Gaga as a 50s movie star. ;)

Bitch I'm the forum queen of the Golden Era :morning:

I really want to see Gaga as a 30s-70s movie star. Image how great she'd look :'( When movies are modernized it can either come out great or outdated extremely fast. It would be interesting to see how modern struggles of fame would effect Vicki. OMG! She could shade Perez throughout the movie :stretcher:

Right? Instead of her boyfriend being addicted to drugs which are now legal, he can be addicted to social media! :hail: And that's how Perez and the #1Perez fansite become the villain of the piece. :evil:

As of right now it looks like it comes out the week after a Melissa McCarthy comedy & the week before the Han Solo Anthology Film. It's only competition is gonna be "Slenderman" and an Untilted LAIKA production. A decent chance to smash at the box office in it's first week! I'm super excited to see this movie. Hopefully we get the trailer by the new year!

Melissa has been flopping lately and Slenderman is incredibly 2015 so I can imagine this doing well! :stretcher: I guess the Star Wars film will be pretty big but they're attracting different demos so hopefully this can still be a hit. <3

Just when I was ready for this movie to slay my very existence, it was revealed that the DISGASTING HALSEY has a role... :yeah: 

Quote

 

EXCLUSIVE: Sony Pictures has closed a life rights deal with singer/songwriter Halsey. The hope is to develop a movie loosely based on her life, which she would star in. I’m told the closest cousin to what they hope for here is a vehicle that does for her what 8 Mile did for Eminem.

How did this happen? The studio often meets youthful for roles in its movies, and the decision after the meeting with Halsey was that the best course was to sculpt a vehicle for her, and about her. Her hits include Now Or Never, Him and I, and Bad At Love. She also drew notice for directing the video of her song Alone. And she plays a small role in the Bradley Cooper-directed A Star Is Born. Sounds like Sony might be onto something here.

 

Why does she ruin everything good? :fishie:

Honestly it's a lot more cheesy than I expected and a lot more Bradley-centric as well... :orly: I'm not mad though, I'm obviously gonna see this the day it comes out and I can't wait for the soundtrack!

Just got back from seeing it for the second time, and I still really enjoy the movie. <3 It's not as amazing as I was maybe hoping for given the hype but I'd still give it a solid 8/10. The best part, of course, is the performances from the leads but honestly the movie is really solid all around. Definitely the kind of thing I'll watch again and again!

I just watched it. It was really good. I truly liked it. But.... 

I think they should have added 3 more scenes to make it FANTASTIC. 

1. The scene where Jack hangs himself. They could've shown more. Like at least him kicking the stool or something.

2. I wish there was a scene where Ally finds out and throws a serious emotional tantrum. They showed her punching the poster, but it was a few days after his death. I wonder what her immediate reaction would be.

3. I kinda wish they elaborated the last scene where she sings I'll Never Love Again showing people cry or throwing some news headlines idk. She could have worn a black dress as well.

      Back in June, we reported that Dr. Luke's legal team had demanded that Kesha hand over a group of select texts between herself and Lady Gaga as evidence in their ongoing defamation trial. According to Luke, the texts were proof that Kesha had defamed his name publicly by spreading three intentional lies about him: that he had raped her, that he had given her drugs against her will, and that he had also raped Katy Perry.
      Up until now, those texts were under lock and key. But thanks to the transparency of the New York legal system, they have now been uploaded online for anyone to view as they please. The original document is online and is probably worth a look just for the sheer bizarreness of watching two major popstars texting like twelve year old girls, but if you don't feel like scrolling through pages of digital information you can read the full transcript below.
      Apart from confirmation that Kesha was indeed under the apprehension that Luke raped Perry - an accusation that both Perry and Luke have both vehemently denied - the texts also brought to light the fact that both Kesha and Gaga at one point considered Perry "mean". While Gaga has always shrugged it off in interviews, the rivalry between her and Perry is well-documented, meaning her claim is pretty unsurprising. But Kesha's negative opinion is a little more confusing, because as far as we know the two were always good terms, with Kesha even appearing as a background extra in Perry's breakthrough music video for 'I Kissed A Girl'.
      Not long after the documents were released online, Gaga took to her social media of choice to retract her claims, countering that Perry is "truly a kind soul" and that her past opinions were a result of "differences w/ each other".
      And it wasn't long before Perry responded with a Tweet of her own, attesting to the fact that there was no bad blood between the two whatsoever.
      Conspicuously absent in the Twitter love-fest was Kesha, who kept quiet about the whole situation. Although it would be easy to suggest that Kesha still holds a grudge against Perry, it's just as likely that she's been advised by her legal team to keep quiet on the issue given that it's part of an ongoing case.
      Either way, we have to wonder what exactly happened in the past that would lead both Gaga and Kesha to consider Perry "mean". Was it really just the fact that Katy wasn't coming forward about her alleged rape, or was there more to it? We were always led to believe that Taylor Swift was the snake of the music industry, but maybe there was another side to the story we haven't been let in on.
      Your thoughts?

      When it was first announced that Lady Gaga would be headlining season five of American Horror Story, sub-titled Hotel, there was a mixed reaction from fans of the show. While Gaga stans were understandably excited, others worried that she wouldn't have the acting chops to pull it off, especially with the shows lead Jessica Lange taking her leave that season. Lange infamously shrugged, laughed and played coy when asked in an interview if Gaga's presence in the show could convince her to stick around for another season.
      Well if new comments from Gaga's co-star and love interest in the show Matt Bomer are anything to go by, the series could have looked very different if Lange had chosen to stay. According to Bomer, season five the show was originally meant to be a Civil War period piece with Lange as the lead before Gaga's involvement was confirmed.
      It's an interesting twist in the story. Up until now, we had been told that Jessica Lange was always going to make her exit in season five and that Gaga's appearance had nothing to do with her choice. But it now sounds as though Lange was at one point confirmed for the season, with an entire plotline based around her character. We can't help but speculate if Gaga's casting made her decide to leave the show, or if showrunner Ryan Murphy's decision to retool the series as Hotel for Gaga encouraged Lange to jump ship.
      Either way, it's all getting very Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, and we'd love to know more about what happened between the two superstars. Better yet, let's just get them in a series together!

      Amelia Lily, aka one of the Holy Trinity of PHF flops, has WOWED us with an iconic rendition of 'Shallow', the hit single from Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's A Star Is Born!  
       
      Not only did Amelia post her version of the track, but she also revealed that she is actually the ghost director, producer, writer and animal handler on A Star Is Born! She also originally had the Lady Gaga role in the movie, but after international audiences couldn't understand her accent she was cut and replaced with Gaga five days before the premiere.
      I always wondered why Gaga got this role when she's never been in a movie before, while Amelia who's starred in blockbusters like Celebrity Big Brother wasn't even considered! Fans are now asking for a director's cut and campaigning for an OSCAR for all of Amelia's hard work with the hashtag #Justice4Amelia.
      What do you guys think of her iconic song and the fact that Gaga is a thief?
