Clint Eastwood to direct Beyonce in ‘A Star is Born’ remake

Before the tangent begins, here are the facts:

Clint Eastwood has signed on to direct the project backed by Warner Bros., and Beyonce has claimed the starring role. Eastwood will also produce the film. No male lead has been named but according to Deadline the WB has been eying Will Smith for a few years to fill the part.

Can we just have a moment of silence to ponder the craziness of this idea? Was Anika Noni Rose not available?  You know, considering she’s pretty much trained in musical theater and she can actually act.  And seriously? How many times is a star going to be born? This movie (among others) has been rebooted so many times that I’m really starting to question the decision-making in Tinseltown. Why is there need to make the same movie a fourth time?

Anywho− shooting is expected to begin this fall.  Here’s hoping that Eastwood and Beyonce can prove us all wrong!
