*Beyonce has confirmed she’ll lead the cast in Clint Eastwood’s remake of “A Star Is Born.”
The singer, who previously starred in “Dreamgirls” and “Austin Powers: Gold Member,” has been linked to the role for months, and now she has ended the speculation by revealing she’ll follow in the footsteps of Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand for a fourth remake of the classic movie.
“Clint Eastwood? Can you believe that? I can’t believe it still,” she said during her summer concert series performance on “Good Morning America” Friday. [Scroll down to watch.] “When I met with him I was just in awe. I’m so, so honored that he believes in me. And I can’t wait to do this film.
“I represent this generation’s talent and for me to be the chosen person, as an African American woman, is incredible.”
Russell Crowe is in talks to co-star.
