Flashback Friday - "A Star Is Born" Beyonce to star in remake

Hollywood is abuzz with the news that Clint Eastwood will direct Beyonce in another remake of "A Star Is Born."

Very curious to see how the story is updated and who the male lead will be.

Beyonce better bring it. She has VERY big shoes to fill. While Bey is one of the most famous pop stars in the world, musically Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland are in a completely different world.

Nikki Finke mentioned Puffy as a possible co-star. No. Just no. Who do you think would be a great male lead for Bey?

Have fantastic weekend.

Here's the trailer from the 1954 version starring Judy Garland.

And the trailer from the 1976 version starring Barbra Streisand.

Simone - Studio feel it's less financially risky making films from pre-existing properties. That's why we are going to see more movies based on toys in the future.

Happy New Year to you too!
