According to Deadline Hollywood, Golden Globe winning actress Lady Gaga is now the top choice to star in a remake of the 1937 classic film "A Star Is Born" after impressing executives at the Warner Bros. in an audition for the lead role! The speculation about Gaga's involvement in the project, to be directed by award-winning actor and film producer Bradley Cooper, has first emerged in April after Gaga was seen dining with Cooper in a restaurant in Los Angeles.
"A Star Is Born" is a film with a story plot that revolves around an aspiring singer who moves to Hollywood and is discovered by an alcoholic and troubled actor. The original version of the classic movie was released in 1937 starring Janet Gaynor. A remake was released in 1954 with Judy Garland as the lead role. Another remake was made in 1976 and Barbra Streisand took on the role.
Warner Bros. has been working for another remake since 2011 with Beyonce originally rumoured to be taking the lead role and Clint Eastwood as the movie director. And now that Lady Gaga is the top choice of the company to take the lead role, if she signs the contract, it will be her first ever major acting gig in a movie after winning "Best Actress" at the Golden Globes in January for her role as The Countess in "American Horror Story: Hotel".
