Bey fans rejoice! It seems Queen Bey is returning to the big screen in a BIG way. Reportedly, Bradley Cooper has signed Beyoncé on for his remake of the 1937 classic A Star Is Born. The project will be Cooper’s directorial debut, and according to Page Six, “Beyoncé is a go.”
There are also rumors of Bey recently taking acting classes. Us Weekly reports that she’s looking for less of a musical part (Dreamgirls) and more of an “iconic dramatic role” in “a film that’s socially relevant to African American rights.” This film could be just that.
A Star Is Born tells the story of a small-town aspiring actress (presumably played by Beyoncé) who moves to Hollywood where she meets an aging starlet who helps launch her career.
