Is Beyoncé Returning To The Big Screen For Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” Remake?

Actor Bradley Cooper is making is directorial debut with a remake of A Star Is Born, and according to Page Six, “Beyoncé is a go.”

It’s been nearly six years since she stood alongside Idris Elba in the box-office thriller Obsessed and nine years since Golden Globe nominated role in Dreamgirls, but don’t go looking for this remake to hit theaters anytime soon, as insiders say the movie won’t be ready to film until the end of next year, or even January 2017.

As far as what role Beyoncé will reprise from the remake, details are mum. However, Us Weekly has reported that the singer is actually interested in focusing more of her attention on disciplining herself in the craft of acting, in which she’d like to take on less of a musical part and more of an “iconic dramatic role.” In addition, it was reported that she’d like to be a part of a “film that’s socially relevant to African American rights.”

Well, knowing the backstory of the 1937 film that has been remade twice already, we’d guess that Beyoncé would be the main character, who is a small-town aspiring actress who moves to Hollywood in hopes of launching her career.

This will be interesting to see what Beyoncé brings to this role, as she makes her foray back into the acting world. What are your thoughts?

    Auntie is a horrible actress, I am not holding my breath for this one.

    Let’s see if she can pull off a non-musical role!

      Yes, Bey is a not-so-good actress, Iu noticed!! …but better than Tiwa Savage in MTV Shuga, I suppose… If she (Tiwa) were fair, I’d think she were Lilian Bach’s grand daughter…lol.

    Is Beyonce a star? Yes.
    Is she an actress? not so sure.
    That main role will need a slayer.
    I don’t see her getting it except of course the reason they are delaying the movie till 2017 is for her to work on her acting skills, because trust me, she’ll sell the movie.

    They’ve been talking about this remake for sooooo long now, it seems like one of those projects that just won’t ever get made. I remember it wasn’t even Bradley Cooper that was going to direct it. Some other famed director (I forget his name). But he wanted Beyonce so bad but she couldn’t commit cos she’d just had Blue Ivy, or was preggars. Now this. They must really be determined to cast her in this remake.

    Maybe it was the assistant-star role she played in DreamGirls, but she alwayz looked…lost to me in that movie. Maybe she will channel some of that energy her music videos have into this

    Since she started singing “Nak me akpako” songs, i commot hand where this girl dey….she cannot act, her voice cannot be used for animation. Bradley Cooper should use lupita or Jlaw.

    Beyonce wants to come back 2 the Silver Screen? After the horrible show of shame in Obsessed and that ‘not-so-wonderful’ acting in Dreamgirls? Please, she needs to go on a 30 year hiatus to perfect her acting skills to get anywhere near J.Lo’s prowess!
    I don’t look forward to seeing the movie. NEXT!

    Jlaw means Jennifer Lawrence, the academy award winner. Wendy Williams said Beyonce wants to go nude in a bid to get the academy award. She wants to get that award so bad! Pity! The rivals like J.Hudson, and Adele are all winners already! For Beyonce it’s all about the competition. She works hard and I believe she can do a good job! Right now her acting is a mess but with a good film sch, let’s keep our fingers crossed.

      I know Jennifer Lawrence, the cute, sexy Hunger Games protagonist, who doesn’t?
      I just didn’t know she’s also called Jlaw…

    Not a fan of Beyoncé but I know for sure (because have seen her movies) her acting isn’t as bad as people are making out.

    At the end, people are just hating on this very successful woman because of her never-say-die-try-it-all-Excellence-by-fire-by-force spirit. She doesn’t know of Yall existence. Atleast she’s very aware of her beyhives existence.

    Beyonce is a very good singer,dancer and also a perfectionist. But one thing beyonce can’t do really well is acting, he speaking voice can be compared to her singing voice….. but what I know I that her acting is better than Serayah in Empire.

      I got your point, but that wasn’t the best way to put it… everyone of us can do things Beyonce can’t do too…

      Also, I didn’t know you had to be excellent at acting to know when someone is terrible at it!!!!

      PS: I love Beyonce, and as far as I’m concerned, she can act – I just didn’t like what you said…
