Gaga’s entry onto the project marks her first starring role in a major studio production, while Cooper’s helming of the production will make it his debut as a director. The two will both play hit musicians in the film, with Gaga’s on the rise and Cooper’s on a decline, and track their relationship as their fortunes change.
Production is set to begin on A Star Is Born early next year, but Warner Bros. has not offered a release date for the movie yet:
Deadline was first to reveal that Gaga was the one Cooper wanted, after things didn’t work out with Beyonce. He was eyeing this as his directing debut back when he was working with Clint Eastwood and Warner Bros on American Sniper, and he won over Warner Bros brass with a chemistry test that the studio loved. Aside from her megawatt stature as a Grammy-winning recording star, Gaga has bolstered her standing on the acting front with a performance in the FX hit American Horror Story that won a Golden Globe. She also got an Oscar nomination for ‘Til It Happens To You from the documentary The Hunting Ground. They all felt Cooper was ready to be a director and that Gaga was ready to take the next step as an actress.
