Actor Bradley Cooper is making is directorial debut with a remake of “A Star Is Born,” and according to Page Six, “Beyoncé is a go.”
It’s been nearly six years since she stood alongside Idris Elba in the box-office thriller Obsessed and nine years since Golden Globe nominated role in Dreamgirls, but don’t go looking for this remake to hit theaters anytime soon, as insiders say the movie won’t be ready to film until the end of next year, or even January 2017.
As far as what role Beyoncé will reprise from the remake, details are mum. However, Us Weekly has reported that the singer is actually interested in focusing more of her attention on disciplining herself in the craft of acting, in which she’d like to take on less of a musical part and more of an “iconic dramatic role.” In addition, it was reported that she’d like to be a part of a “film that’s socially relevant to African American rights.”
Well, knowing the backstory of the 1937 film that has been remade twice already, we’d guess that Beyoncé would be the main character, who is a small-town aspiring actress who moves to Hollywood in hopes of launching her career.
This will be interesting to see what Beyoncé brings to this role, as she makes her foray back into the acting world. What are your thoughts?
It’s Man Crush Monday time, which means another edition of Hotness or Hot Mess. Coming to you straight from L.A.

Sometimes it’s over just as quickly as it starts — it being these ridiculously short celebrity romances you might’ve missed if you blinked an eye.
Jennifer Lopez and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
When Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony tied the knot back in 2004, it seemed like a match made in heaven so fans were understandably shocked when they announced their split in 2011. J. Lo moved on to back-up dancer Cris Smart and they remained a couple until early June of 2014. While hot on the promo trail to get the word out about her upcoming album, Lopez started making different headlines. Reports leaked that Lopez had hooked up with “Dancing with the Stars” dancer and recent mirror ball champ Maksim Chmerkovskiy. But as quickly as it started, things have seemed to fizzle out. Reportedly, Chmerkovskiy was turned off by the media attention Lopez garnered and was looking for something a little more low-key.

Perhaps best known as magneto in the blockbuster franchise X-Men, Michael Fassbender knew he wanted to be an actor since he was 17 years old. His first role came in the television miniseries “Band of Brothers.” The German-Irish actor has been romantically linked to actress Nicole Baharie and Leasi Andrews. He also dated Zoe Kravitz for several years. Recently rumors were sparked last month when the 12 Years a Slave actor was spotted hugging and kissing supermodel Naomi Campbell while dining at a London restaurant.
There was a lot of great celebrity news to come out of 2013. But, unfortunately, not everything was sunshine and roses. A number of notable couples called it a quits this year.

Who didn’t see this coming after Clint Eastwood started talking to an imaginary Obama, by way of a chair, on stage at the Republican National Convention?
Variety is reporting that Beyonce has “fallen out of” the somewhat highly anticipated “A Star is Born” remake which Mr. Eastwood is slated to direct. The PR line is that Bey has a lot going on and since no clear start date for filming had been set, figuring out her schedule for projects was becoming too complicated. See sentence one for the likelier explanation.
What’s exciting though is that Clint Eastwood is said to already have his eye on another amazing woman for the lead: Esperanza Spalding. She would take the role played by Barbra Streisand in the original 1976 version of the film, playing a young performer who falls in love with an older fading star. That brings me to the issue of a male lead. A zillion top-line actors have been approached to fill the role, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Johnny Depp, and Bradley Cooper but so far no one seems to be interested in this remake, which is making this project quite difficult to launch. Until Clint can nail down a male to take the part, sources say he will not reach out to any woman about taking over Beyonce’s role, including Esperanza.
Clint might have to let this one go.
What do you think about the possibility of Esperanza playing the female lead in “A Star is Born”?

Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper are back on! Guess why? Zoe has the stamp of approval from Bradley’s mom.
The pair was pretty tight for about three months at the beginning of the year, quietly ending their romance sometime in March. Some speculated that the couple’s quick relationship was just a publicity stunt but seeing Zoe spend time with Bradley’s mom changed a few minds, because you know quality bonding with the mum makes it real. It appears that time was well spent because Bradley and Zoe have been seen spending quite a bit of time together lately and it sounds like this time it might last because mama Cooper is rooting for Zoe. ” A source told RadarOnline:
“It was Gloria who told Bradley to date Zoe again – she loves Zoe.
“Bradley and Zoe have been seeing a lot of each other recently; they were promoting their new movie The Words and their paths crossed a few times at press junkets and premieres.
“That ignited some feelings in Bradley, who told Gloria that he was seeing a lot of Zoe and they were getting on really well.
“Gloria then told Bradley how she felt about Zoe and said to him how she was his first girlfriend since Renee that she truly liked.”
Mama might want to tell her son to slow down on the rounds he’s making through Hollywood is they both want Zoe to stick around. It’s no secret what a ladies man Bradley is, having racked up quite a roster of celebrity women in the short time he’s been in the limelight. Maybe Zoe will be the one to get him to settle down. What do you think?

Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper didn’t waste much time taking their on-set romance off-set last year while they were filming their new movie, “The Words.” The couple was seen getting pretty close with each other at dinner parties and industry events, and Zoe was even spotted spending the day with Bradley’s mom. At that point, we all thought we knew it was real, but almost as soon as they wrapped filming it was a wrap for the couple as well.
Word is these two might be getting back together though. Page Six says the couple reunited Wednesday night and it was “not just business.” The maybe-couple were spotted in the East Village at the Mexican restaurant Empellon Cocina dining together for a few hours before they left together, and according to one observer:
“It looked a little more friendly than a business meeting.”
Reps haven’t put out a comment on the situation and though it’s entirely possibly these two are just friends having a bite to eat, the timing is as curious as it was with all of the other relationship rumors. Since “The Words” is coming to theaters soon this could just be another PR ploy to dredge up more interest in the movie. With Bradley’s rep we wouldn’t’ be surprised if this is only a short fling but these two are cute together for however long it lasts.
