Bradley Cooper is learning what directing is all about…money and surprises!
The actor’s directing debut, a remake of “A Star Is Born,” has fallen through after his rumored co-star wanted too much money for the role.
The “American Sniper” star was going to direct and star in the remake of the 1950s Judy Garland musical alongside a VERY famous woman, but it just didn’t pan out. So who’s the star who’s causing such a fuss?
Find out, after the jump!
Most people would be jumping at the chance to work with Bradley Cooper on the reboot of this Hollywood classic…but Beyonce isn’t everyone!
One Hollywood source tells Page Six, “Beyoncé wanted too much money, and Warner Bros. balked at her price. The production budget was also said to be an issue with the studio, so the project has fallen apart.”
However, a different source claimed, “Bradley has started reading scripts for his next acting project. But the ‘Star Is Born’ project remains in development and Bradley is still involved.”
A third source added, “This project is something Bradley has been involved with for a long time. It has gone on the back burner, but he’s still working on it, among other projects.”
Cooper has his own production company, 22nd & Green, with Todd Phillips under the Warner umbrella. The remake has been floating around since 2011 and in 2014, Cooper picked the project as he’s been wanting to direct for a while now.
Well, looks like the project’s on hold for a while longer. But something tells me that it’ll get made…eventually.
