Lady Gaga Looks Set To Join Bradley Cooper’s Directorial Debut A Star Is Born

American Sniper star Bradley Cooper will make his directorial debut with A Star Is Born, and a new report from Deadline reveals that singer turned award winning actress Lady Gaga (American Horror Story) looks set to join him. Beyonce was originally up for the role a while back, but negotiations with the “Poker Face” singer look set to begin soon.

As the trade points out, Lady Gaga’s involvement guarantees that A Star Is Born will have a killer soundtrack, but it will also be interesting to see how Cooper fares in the director’s chair. The actor and producer worked on the screenplay with Will Fetters, which will have Gaga playing a young woman whose dreams of stardom are helped by a self-destructive icon whose best days are behind him (Cooper). A few different versions of A Star Is Born have been made in the past, with various iterations »
