Clint Eastwood’s next project A STAR IS BORN has hit many obstacles and production hasn’t even started yet. Initially the film was delayed because the star of the movie Beyonce decided to go and have a baby. Now, her schedule is so packed with various projects that she can’t commit to being the lead of the film anymore.
A STAR IS BORN is a remake of the 1954 film with the same title starring Judy Garland and James Mason, and tells the story of a movie star finding himself at the end of his career. He then meets a young woman who he turns into a star, but a conflict arises as she continues towards the top and he falls further behind in his fame. Beyonce dropping out from the film is not the only casting problem Eastwood is facing; he has yet to cast a male lead.
Rumour has it all actors he’s approached like Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper, have declined to get involved. Eastwood is now hoping to land jazz singer Esperanza Spalding as the lead. Do you think this movie will ever be made and is it less exciting without Mrs Carter in the lead? Comment and let us know.
