Beyoncè is no longer attached to star in the remake of “A Star is Born,” according to Page Six.
Co-star Bradley Cooper was supposed to make his directorial debut with the project, but it reportedly fell through after Bey wanted the type of money Warner Bros. wasn’t willing to give.
“Beyoncé wanted too much money and Warner Bros. balked at her price,” a Hollywood source told Page Six. “The production budget was also said to be an issue with the studio, so the project has fallen apart.”
However, a different source claimed, “Bradley has started reading scripts for his next acting project. But the ‘Star Is Born’ project remains in development and Bradley is still involved.”
A third source added, “This project is something Bradley has been involved with for a long time. It has gone on the back burner, but he’s still working on it, among other projects.”
In 2014, Cooper chose the project as his directorial debut, following the success of “American Sniper,” also made with Warner Bros.
