As Beyonce Quits Clint Eastwood Movie; Can Anyone Else Keep the Project Afloat?

There have, to date, been three versions of 'A Star is Born' the first in 1937, the second in 1954 and the most recent came out in 1976, and all have been wildly successful. The recipe for success seems to be in having an extraordinary leading lady, with Judy Garland starring in the 1954 version, and Barbara Streisand the latter, the biggest stars with the strongest and most distinctive voices of their time, there is no question as to why Clint Eastwood would want Beyonce to be the leading lady in the newest proposed adaptation of the classic film. He must now be devastated as she's pulled out of the project-for a second time.

The premise of every film is a female rising star, taken on by a veteran in the business, who sees his own career decline with the career of the 'rising star' rockets. The main problem this project is facing seems to be finding the right leading stars. The casting crew has been through a long list of Hollywood's greats, but left without much, and now with Beyonce's premature exit they're left with nothing. Bradley Cooper has been cited as a hot favourite for the role that would have been opposite Beyonce.

In TheWrap.com Beyonce cites a jampacked schedule for her abdication from the role. She said: 'I was looking forward to the production of A Star Is Born and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood. 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.' However, some critics have questioned whether political differences have pushed Beyonce and Eastwood apart, as the former has been vocal in her backing of democrat Barack Obama, whereas Eastwood is a life-long republican.

The jam-packed schedule is probably not far wrong, given that she is working on an animated film 'Epic', recording a new album, and most importantly has a baby to look after. However, without Beyonce's specific stardom, can this project ever find any ground to run? Unfortunately, perhaps not.
