Beyonce Steps Down From Clint Eastwood’s A Star Is Born


Beyonce Knowles Clint Eastwood Janet Gaynor Judy Garland Barbra Streisand Esperanza Spalding

Beyonce’s role in the latest remake of A Star Is Born, directed by Clint Eastwood, is no more, due to scheduling issues, reports E! Online.

“I was looking forward to the production of A Star Is Born and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood," Beyonce said in a statement to 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." So it looks like it’s back to the drawing board for Clint, who has been busy with his latest flick, Trouble With the Curve, which didn’t really do that well at the Box Office. "We've talked to several people, and we probably won't address that one till next year," Eastwood explained to E! at the premiere of his recent film. "Early next year,” he added.

The 1937 original had rising star Janet Gaynor falling in love with Frederic March. In 1954, Judy Garland rose and in 1976, Barbra Streisand found her voice with the help of Kris Kristofferson. Eastwood is said to be eyeing jazz star Esperanza Spalding as a replacement, but wants to secure a male lead before approaching female stars. As of yet, there is no date for the film, which is allegedly another reason for Beyonce’s withdrawal.
