On October 9, Beyoncé announced that she quit starring in Clint Eastwood’s remake “A Star Is Born” due to scheduling conflicts. According to OTRC, the music diva is disappointed in the outcome of her latest movie deal and hopes for a collaboration in the near future.
Two days ago, Beyoncé has announced that she was exiting the project she signed up for – the third remake of “A Star Is Born”, directed by Clint Eastwood. In a statement to E! News, the singer said: “I was looking forward to the production of ‘A Star Is Born’ and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood”, adding that it took them months to realize that the schedules could not be coordinated. “It was just not possible”, Beyoncé concluded. “Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together”.
The collaboration was first announced in January this year by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Earlier this month, rumors started that Beyoncé and Jay-Z might be expecting a second son or daughter. The exit from the movie made fans even more suspicious. But the artists both denied having such plans, at least for now.
The original version of “A Star Is Born” was released in 1937 and the second one came in 1954. The most famous one was the third one, released in 1976 and starring Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
No word yet on who could replace Beyoncé in the 2013 version of “A Star Is Born”.
