The film company Warner Bros has given the green light to production of the musical film “A Star Is Born.” The picture will be the directorial debut of actor and four-time nominee for “Oscar” Bradley Cooper.
main role in the movie performed by singer Lady Gaga and her partner would be Cooper himself.
«a Star is born” – a remake of the popular story of the famous Hollywood last musician who accidentally meets aspiring actress and helps her to get into the star of the scene. For the first time the story was told in the movie 1937, starring the stars of that time – Adolphe Menjou and Janet Gaynor (the first winner of the “Oscar” for Best Actress). Then it turned George Cukor in 1954, invited to starring Judy Garland and James Mason. The second remake was filmed in 1976 – with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, and this version has received “Oscar” for best song ( «Evergreen») and three nominations for the award
in 2013, the story remade in Bollywood: in the film” Life in the name of love – 2 »(Aashiqui 2) played by Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor
The new Hollywood remake. old plot was planned long ago. In 2011, he agreed to become a director Clint Eastwood, who called for a central role Beyoncé, but they did not work. The singer became pregnant and went into a sabbatical, and Eastwood took up another musical film – “The Boys from Jersey”, which was released simultaneously with his “sniper”, but unlike the successful military drama flopped at the box office. After that, apparently, Eastwood (first role which date back to the first remake of “A Star Is Born”) Zaretsky district on musical projects and bosses production company paid attention to the play in “Sniper” major role Bradley Cooper, who was at the same time and one of the producers of the picture.
in general, he increasingly produces, among his works, such as the painting “My guy – crazy” in recent years and “American Hustle” David O. Russell. Since his debut as a director was a matter of time, and it seems that time has come. The fact that he is also the Executive one of the two main roles, too, is no surprise. Cooper, of course, best known for the comedy trilogy “The Hangover”, but he has four nominations for “Oscar” (three actors and a producer for the “Sniper”), and in general a very varied filmography in which about 60 roles today.
The problem with him, of course, not the easiest. The film has become a classic in 1937, with the songs of his film Garland toured after the actress’s career, and of attention to picture Academy Award 1976 speak for themselves. Therefore, the choice of actress Cooper approached responsibly, trying to achieve a certain “chemistry” between himself and the partner.
Lady Gaga, apparently, came in all respects.
Now it is, of course, not as a star, as a few years ago, when the news of it appeared almost daily. After the release of the album “artpop” in 2013, a six-time winner of the “Grammy” is not as flamboyant life, the audience almost does not provoke, and is trying to master and other areas of the entertainment industry. So, it has become one of the authors nominated for “Oscar” song «Til It Happens to You» a documentary on violence on college campuses “hunting area”, and this year won the “Golden Globe” for his role as the sinister Countess in Channel television series the FX “American horror story: Hotel».
Lady Gaga not only play a major role in the new version of “a Star Is born,” but also writes songs for this film. The date of release of the picture, however, in the Warner Bros did not name, but to shoot Cooper plans to begin in early 2017.
