Lady Gaga may have just prescribed ‘The Cure’ for the Pop charts, but she’s also hard at work on a brand new movie.
As reported, Mother Monster has landed the lead role in Bradley Cooper’s remake of ‘A Star Is Born.’
Filming for the Warner Bros production is currently underway and Gaga took to social media to share the first look. Peep the pic above and the caption below:
I am so excited to star in my first movie alongside someone I’m so lucky to call my friend. I always wanted to be an actress on the big screen. The story of “A Star is Born” is so special and I’m so grateful to Bradley for making my dream come true. Can’t wait for you to meet Ally. She has her first scene in 5….⏰
In Gaga’s version of the classic, the female role, originally portrayed as a movie star on the rise, has been re-imagined as a small-time nightclub singer who eventually achieves global stardom.
Intriguingly, this borrows a page out of a recent Bollywood remake – which went on to be become a huge success.
There will be a major soundtrack component to the project – reportedly doubling as an album. Much like ‘The Bodyguard’ and ‘Dreamgirls.’
‘A Star Is Born’ hits theaters in 2018.
