Beyonce Knowles has apparently long been attached to a remake of A Star Is Born, a film given many iterations by Hollywood over the years, including a Judy Garland version in 1954 and a Barbara Streisand version in 1976.

The film tells of the rise of an upcoming star and this remake (how frustrating is that, “this” remake?) will be helmed and produced by Clint Eastwood from a Will Fetters (Remember Me) script.

Since Eastwood and DiCaprio are working together on J Edgar, it stands to reason that they might have a casual chit-chat about other opportunities to work together and this sort of project would seem to be a good fit style-wise for all three supposed players.

If this progresses beyond the rumour-mill to the rarefied atmosphere of “actually happening”, we’ll let you know.
