Eastwood & Beyonce Together!

Clint Eastwood will soon have his hands full directing Beyonce in a remake of A Star is Born.


It's a match made in some sort of weird movie heaven, but a Clint Eastwood meets Beyonce match-up is happening for a remake of A Star is Born.

The unlikely duo won't be starring opposite each other in the fourth restyling of A Star is Born, as Eastwood has signed on to give the diva a bit of direction. The legendary actor-director is locked in to direct the film with Beyonce acting as the film's first confirmed leading star.

A Star is Born first came to the big screen in 1937 with Janet Gaynor carrying the film. It was remade two more times, once in 1954 with the legendary Judy Garland and again in 1976 with another superstar, Barbra Streisand.

While no leading man has been cast for the Clint Eastwood version, there are a few notable names being thrown around to play Beyonce's costar including her own husband Jay-Z. Other popular Hollywood actors being buzzed about are Will Smith, P. Diddy, Eddie Murphy, Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Hamm. They have some time to decide as filming doesn't begin until fall.

Who do you think would make the perfect costar for Beyonce in A Star is Born? We think RDJ might be an interesting choice. Tell us, we want to know.

---Fresh off a string of New World Order/RED China 'eugenics friendly' vehicles (Million DOllar Baby, Iwo trilogy etc.) ---AND after having cunningly BAULKED the astoundingly important 60th Anniversary of the KOREAN WAR last year ---Eastwood now 'moves on' to that stalest of done-to-death early 50's retreads ---'A Star Is Born'. Funny how DENIAL works. IN FACT ---it's toooooo funny...

Robert Downey Jr. would be excellent. I don't think it has to be an older actor just someone capable of playing an obsessed, abusive, addict.

This release of A Star Is Born will be actually be the FOURTH remake, not the third. The original release was in 1932 staring Constance Bennett and Lowell Sherman under the name What Price Hollywood.

Why does it have to be a black male actor cast alongside a black female actor? Why can't it be a white, asian orhispanic male lead, and make the film about an interracial couple?

Why does it have to be a black male counterpart to Beyonce? What's wrong with having an interracial couple as the leads?

None of those guys listed are old enough. I think it needs to be someone older.

Horrible choice. She can't act and definitely can't sing. She has no range. Her pitch is always off. Very flat voice. She sounds like she is yelling out the words rather than singing them.
