Bradley Cooper is the latest actor supposedly considering starring in Clint Eastwood‘s remake of A Star is Born.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cooper is mulling over the opportunity to appear opposite Beyoncé Knowles in the flick.
Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Eminem, Russell Crowe and even Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z have all been rumoured at one time or another to be in consideration for the role.
Screenwriter Will Fetters described the part thusly: “If Kurt Cobain never got to go Unplugged and survived and it’s 20 years later and it’s now, and he wanted to try to do that album with that understanding as this grunge icon. That’d be tough to get done if he was past his prime, no longer selling, how does he get that album?”
Knowles follows in the footsteps of Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand, who each played the birthed starlet in previous incarnations.
