Singer’s schedule has become too complicated to take on role
After delaying production due to her pregnancy last year, BeyoncÃ© has dropped out of Clint Eastwood’s planned remake ofÂ A Star Is Born,Â Variety magazine reports. Sources say the singer’s schedule has become too complicated without a scheduled start date. BeyoncÃ© was set to reprise Barbra Streisand’s role in the 1976 version as a young, up-and-coming performer who falls for an older star. Eastwood has approached Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Johnny Depp and Bradley Cooper for the male lead, but has yet to cast anyone.
The film was set to enter production last year, before BeyoncÃ©’s pregnancy and Eastwood’s role onÂ Trouble With the CurveÂ led to postponements. BeyoncÃ© is still active on the film front ”“Â she’s directing a new autobiographical documentaryÂ and isÂ set to starÂ in the upcoming animated filmÂ Epic.
