If she plays her cards right, Beyonce may finally nab that Oscar she so desperately wants. According to Deadline, Clint Eastwood will direct Beyonce in a remake of A Star is Born, which has already hit the big screen a number of times – most notably back in 1954 when Judy Garland played the lead role of an aspiring artist who rises to the top after an aging, alcoholic actor takes her under his wing.
Clint Eastwood and Beyonce Team for 'A Star is Born' Remake
Eastwood may not seem like the sort of director to take on a movie musical, but remember there’s music in his roots. From Paint Your Wagon to Bird, Eastwood – as rough and tough as he is – has always had a soft spot for music, and so it make sense to see him get behind the camera for this one.
Can he do what he did for Hilary Swank and steer Beyonce toward Oscar gold? What do you think?
