Clint Eastwood and Beyoncé won’t be making beautiful movies together anytime soon. The singer has confirmed that she will no longer star in the director’s remake of the classic film, “A Star Is Born.”
Beyoncé released a statement on Tuesday explaining that she dropped out of the project due to her busy schedule. “I was looking forward to the production of ‘A Star Is Born’ and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood,” she told E! News. “For months we tried to coordinate our schedules to bring this remake to life but it was just not possible. Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together.”
Beyoncé was first attached to the part in January 2011, but production was eventually pushed back when she got pregnant later that year. While she won’t be in the movie, she has been keeping busy. She recently appeared on stage alongside her hubby Jay-Z when he closed out his shows at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and she’s rumored to be working on new tunes.
Variety first reported the movie news, with sources saying that with Beyoncé out, Grammy-winning jazz musician Esperanza Spalding is now being considered for the role. Spalding made headlines in 2011 when she took home the award for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards, beating out Justin Bieber.
However, no decision for that role will be made until a male lead has signed on. Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Johnny Depp, Will Smith, Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Hamm have all been rumored to join the film at any point during its development.
The film follows the love story of a talented young woman who falls for a falling star. There have already been three other versions of the movie, including the 1937 original film with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, a 1954 version with Judy Garland and James Mason and a 1976 remake with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
See Mr. Divabetic challenge New Yorkers with his nutrition game, Serve, Taste or Trash! You might be surprised by the results. In the game, you’re given three choices of fruits and vegetables. You must decide which one you’d serve, which one you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
Before you decide to “trash” a veggie for good, why not try to eat it raw? Raw veggies can be more appetizing than their cooked counterparts to people who aren’t crazy about vegetables. The flavors of raw veggies can be milder than those of cooked ones. And the texture is crispy, rather than mushy. Let Mr. Divabetic inspire you to eat more fruits and vegetables.
