Clint Eastwood's Trouble With Beyonce
Clint Eastwood is being bounced around by Beyonce who can't find time for his remake of A Star Is Born.
The veteran actor/director has been attached to the musical for years but admits every time he gets close to calling 'action' on the film, his leading lady's calendar fills up.
"I talked about that for a while with Warner Brothers' people and we're still playing with that idea. But the problem at the beginning (was) they were more infatuated with just the idea of the casting," Eastwood told The Hollywood Reporter.
"They were talking about having Beyonce in it, and she was very popular, but she also is very active and it's hard to get a time scheduled, so we never could get that worked out.
"But I'm still playing with the idea."
A Star Is Born was originally released in 1937, starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March.
It was remade in 1954 with James Mason and Judy Garland in the lead roles and again in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson as the main characters.
